All right, I'm trying to record both the stereo mix from my computer and sound from my headset's microphone at the same time. I'm using a headset with a headphone and a microphone plugging-in thing, but I only plug in the microphone one so the sound still comes out of my computer. I followed this tutorial from these forums:

This should work for any Window 7 system having the seeming lack of a stereo mix capability.
1. Go to the Sound controls for recording devices (right click on the speaker icon)
2. Right click on Rec. Playback and enable it.
3. Right click on your microphone and enable it and set a a default device (mine is a Logitec Pro 9000 webcam microphone, and I've set it as the "default communication device"
Here's the secret part:
4.When you click on your microphone then click on the "properties" button, and then click on the "listen" tab, and then click on "listen to this device"
Make sure you disable the Microphone/Line in by right clicking on it. As far as I can tell you can not have this enabled. It should read "Currently disabled" if you are doing this correctly.
Now you can hear your mic through your headphones and hear music playing through the Rec. Playback at the same time, and you should be able to then record or use it with any program to simultaneously play/record microphone and music.
After doing steps 1-4 I can hear my voice through the speakers, but stereo mix will not record
--I try to record anything and it records my microphone. Stereo Mix is set to default device and my microphone to Default Communications Device. Disabling my microphone lets stereo mix record, but my microphone does not. One thing about the tutorial that concerns me is the "microphone/line in" part, which, I have not seen anything that says microphone/line in so I do not know what that is about.
Thank you in advance for any help you are able to give me.
