Windows 7: [Recording] Stereo Mix Available, Sound Recording Not

[Recording] Stereo Mix Available, Sound Recording Not

Hello. I am EpicallyAWSM.

Alright before I explain, I must tell you that I WAS able to record audio previously.

I'm having a problem while recording audio with Fraps (a game video-recording software). Previously, I was unable to find the Stereo Mix at all, until I found the Drivers CD that came with my computer.

After I installed the driver, I tested it on a few different games, but the result was still the same: no audio in my recorded files. I have double-checked, and the volume for Stereo Mix is maxed, and it is set to the default recording device. I have spent countless hours trying to find a fix for this problem, so I decided to file it in myself.

One thing though, is that I'm aware my sound card driver is a little out of date, but I am unable to update it because I get an error while running the setup file. My sound card is "Realtek High Definition Audio Card" - that's all I know about it.

I'm sure my version of Fraps is capable of recording this audio, because I was able to do so before. Suddenly though I was unable to record audio and I had a problem with sound channels in Game Maker 8 (problem I will be asking in the Game Maker forum). I am unsure what to do. Please do not give me the answers I have been seeing for the past week (Check Show All Devices, make sure your volume is maxed, etc.)

Thank you
EpicallyAWSM

Are you able to record in any other program, other than fraps? Download the free Audacity recording program and try recording with it.

Actually I was just about to try that. I have also noticed that my Messaging Application Xfire is not making any sounds, even though my speakers say it is, so it could be a program-based problem.

EDIT: I have tried Audacity, and when I try to record anything I get "Error when opening device. Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate."

Check Audacity preferences from the edit menu.

Look at the devices tab.

For stereo mix to work, it should be chosen as the device from the drop down in the recording section of the devices tab.
