Windows 7: Stereo Mix (VIA HD Audio) No longer working, won't transfer sound.

Stereo Mix (VIA HD Audio) No longer working, won't transfer sound.

So I just got Speakers this Christmas (2015), and I set them up, took about 3 hours to finally get them working from watching many youtube videos. Basically I set it up so I can have lets say Music playing through my headphones and my speakers at the same time. All of this is possible through the Stereo mix.

How I have it setup as of then (when it was working):

  • Speakers is Default Device
  • Headphone is Ready
  • Microphone is Default Device
  • Stereo Mix is Ready

The Stereo mix options are as follows (I watched youtube video and got this to work perfectly):
  • [Check] Listen to this Device
  • Playback Through this Device: Headphone

And now (today), the Stereo mix is no longer working, listening to the speaker then to transfer that sound to the Microphone from the Stereo mix, so basically I can't listen to any application that takes sound to the speaker, and have the sound go to my headphones.

This is a Big problem cause I like to play music and talk on Skype and have that sound go to headphones then have my video-game sound playing through my speakers.

Recently, I updated something to do with Microsoft Visual C++ and .NET Framework, I don't know when my Stereo mix stopped working, but I know that after I installed both of them it stopped working (no evidence of these being the cause, but it could be).

In RealTek, there is an option to have the speakers still work when a headset is plugged in. It has nothing to do with Stereo Mix (which is for Recording).

I don't know what type of control panel VIA has but look for a panel, probably in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound.

Ok, well I didn't get much from your post but thanks anyways, currently i'm downloading an Update for my Sound Card/Driver, and hopefully that may add/fix some things.
