Windows 7: Stereo Mix not working!

Stereo Mix not working!

Hey, I've been having this problem with stereo mix where it doesn't play the music I listen to.
I normally sit in skype with my friends while we play. I want to enable stereo mix so that they can hear what I listen to. Before I formatted my computer it worked but now it doesn't work anymore for some reason. I have the same sound card, same driver and the same OS. The green bar just wont move when I enable Stereo Mix.
I've been searching alot and there are alot of people having this problem but no fix seems to work for me. I've tried:
*Disabling Microphone while enabling Stereo Mix (This worked for my laptop but not for my desktop PC where i'm trying to fix it)
*checking "Listen to this Device" and selecting default playback device on Stereo Mix and on Mirophone
*Setting Stereo Mix as default device and default communication device

Is there anything else that can help me?

Search on internet for an updated audio driver for the audio device you have on your system. Try with the new driver. Sometimes it works.
