Sound Recorder problem

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by John Rampling, Jun 1, 2005.

  1. I installed a new sound card because my onboard sound chip was poor. The new
    card is Audio Extreme 5.1 (two-speaker setup at present) and works fine with
    CDs, MP3s, streaming audio etc.

    However I can not get Sound Recorder to detect any sound at all. I have
    Audacity but that doesn't detect any sound either. I have checked that
    nothing is set on 'mute' and that mixer defaults are OK but still nothing.

    Could it be that Sound Recorder / Audacity are still 'looking' at the old
    sound chip? If so how can I persuade them to see my new card? The old chip
    does not appear in the list on Device manager.

    Under the Windows mixer you need to change it to recording rather than
    playback (i think its in the options) and then check to see if any of
    THOSE are muted.

    Thanks but that was not the problem. Any more ideas?
