Solution to missing Stereo Mix for some laptops

I have a DELL Vostro 1000 with the 32bit version of Windows 7 RC (Build 7100) installed. I too ran into the problem of the missing recording devices. The onboard sound chipset is the Sigmatel chipset. I found my solution by hunting through the many Vista and Windows 7 forums. I downloaded the drivers from Once installed the CD Audio and Stereo Mix devices were present in the list of recording devices.

Windows 7

I have the same problem on my dell vostro 1000 with windows 7... however that driver doesn't seem to work (i've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver a few times).

I actually do see stereo mix in my recording devices, however when I try and enable sound I get a "detecting problems" box and no sound.
