Windows 7: Stereo Mix

Stereo Mix

In Nov 2013 my laptop's motherboard died. I bought a used one that has audio issues and, ever since I installed it in Jan 2014, I haven't been able to get a stereo mix enabled. I've tried 3rd party applications to no avail. I've tried downloading the HD Audio driver from Realtek. Still, nothing. The original audio drive for my computer also doesn't work, and when I download the HP program that detects your product (because, as I thought, "maybe this motherboard is just different and it'll magically pull up a better driver), it cannot even detect a product. So I'm really not sure what to do at this point. Does anyone know of a fix to get my stereo mix back? I'd like to use it for broadcasting.

Go to control panel and open the sound applet.

Look at the recording tab. Right click in any of the white space in that recording tab. Are you then able to choose "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices? If so, you may then be able to use stereo mix.

If that doesn't help, you are probably limited by your motherboard. Some simply won't provide stereo mix in Win 7.

In that case, look to buy an internal or external (USB) sound card that is known to provide stereo mix.

There is some chance you can find an older or different driver that may provide stereo mix, but that can take a lot of time in searching and trial-and-error experimentation, which can be frustrating and yield nothing in the long run.

I do have it selected to show both disabled and disconnected devices. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a stereo mix since installing the new motherboard. USB's not a bad idea.

I had an issue with getting Stereo Mix to work on a Dell laptop. There is a thread here detailing what I did... it might help you out.

Can't see Stereo Mix on Dell Inspiron 7520

I wanted to use multiple outputs from my sound card. I read and found using stero mix in recording device and checking listen to this device does the trick and works perfectly. Well almost, the problem is now my computer won't go into sleep mode. Is there a way around this? tried powercfg...
