Windows 7: Asus motherboard No stereo mix option, need help.

Windows 7 Ultimate
Asus motherboard No stereo mix option, need help.

Before and stupid person asks, yes I've shown disabled devices in recording tab.

Now for the problem, I have no stereo mix option... Was wondering if it was something with the motherboard, or what, cause I've never had this kind of problem before.
It's an Asus p5e-vm do. If anyone has any idea's or knows what the problem is please let me know, would be much appreciated.

Windows 10 64 bit

This has been an issue with some model PC's. When I was doing support on the Dell forums a couple of years ago there were a couple of Dell models that did not have the System Mixer. People tried various non-Dell drivers but non-Dell drivers either did not install, did not work or would not work properly.

You can try other drivers, as I don't know if ASUS systems "must have" ASUS sound drivers, like the Dell's. If you can't find a driver solution, there are some (paid for) software solutions that will function like the system mixer and allow you to record, for example, streaming audio from the internet. I don't recall what the program's are but I remember seeing one referenced in a post a couple of months ago. There was "Total Recorder" that did that function in Windows XP, I don't know if its been updated to work in Vista/Win 7 but you can check it out as a start.
