Windows 7: no recording device

no recording device

I'm missing an installed recording device. I have three disabled/disconnected devices (two microphones and a line-in). What do I need to install to record streaming audio?

Thanks, but after I enable the microphone, the "set as default device" is grayed-out.

What microphone do you have? You may need to re install the drivers.

nothing specific. I thought it is a default driver.

I verified that the driver is current, but I don't know why I have two (and the in-line).

If uninstall them, how do I install a new one?

EDIT:

I have a vista machine that uses a mic as it's recording device and all is well with that machine.

Go to device manager in windows (start > right click my computer icon > properties > device manager), and then select the hardware items, click on properties and then update driver. Then you can install the drivers.

I updated the driver and the update said the best driver for my device has already been installed.

Shouldn't I be able to use my sound card as as an input device? If so, it's not available, disabled, or disconnected. Am I on the right track?

That's a great question! If it's not built into my mother board, I may not have one (if that's possible). In the old old old days I would have one and know what it was, but now????

What do you do given that I listen to streaming audio all the time, but don't have a handle on my sound card (if any)? My default payback device is a Microsoft high def audio device if that helps.
