Windows 7: Stereo Mix sounds like a mic

Stereo Mix sounds like a mic

Help! When I try to record something with FRAPS, or Bandicam, or Camtasia, my system sound sounds as if I'm recording sound, that's coming from speakers, with a microphone. I don't use speakers though, earphones, and my general sound is fine, even when I record, BUT the files made have this sound problem.

I have an on-board sound card as I haven't had enough money for a good sound card, and apart from this recording problem, my on-board seems to be fine.

I doubt this will make much of a difference but just in case, my specs are:
Intel Core i5-2300 2.80GHz (Quad Core)
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560

Please reply as soon as possible.

Not much one can really do. Its all depended on hardware.

Hey, problem solved! I've fixed it by downloading a different driver.

I'll mark this as solved now.

I feel like saying thanks, yet you weren't actually very helpful. :/
