Preferred Solution: Cannot record audio from laptop - no matter what!!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sigmatel audio cards have weird problems getting recorders to work on them. The reliable solution I have found is a piece of freeware called Freecorder. It installs a browser toolbar which has record and stop buttons. Just play whatever you want and press record, then when you are done, press stop. Freecorder will record all sounds coming out of the speaker of your computer and will split it up into multiple pieces based on pauses in the sound (so if you are streaming multiple songs from a site, you will get the songs individually broken up instead of one massive MP3).

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Hi Bought a new Behringer mixer with a USB output Plugged it in and as always happens I get this message This happened before with a Logitech headset Logitech s tech support was of zero help as per usual No matter how many times what do.

Tried plugging it into different USB ports, no dice.

Yet I've run it now three times, rebooted every time, and every time I get With these details:So it's all ready to use! Except for the freaking driver. Which is no small detail.

Do Audio Video Cables Quality matter much?

for example with Coax i know the gold connectors worked better then silver connectors. So my question is do the cables red yellow and white connectors have high and low quality cables or they all the same. If they have high quality cables what are the names of them and where can i find them.

A:Do Audio Video Cables quality matter much?

Red,White audio RCA are much the same.
It's haveing and useing a SVHS video cable instead of Yellow RCA.
If your TV has it for VCR's etc.that have it out.

I have an emu 1820m soundcard installed in my computer. It seems to be functioning perfectly. I can play dvd'd, cd's, iTunes, etc and the sound plays through my speakers without a problem. I want to record some sounds from a dvd but i cant get anything to record. Recording device is set to Wave EMU DSP as the default device. Im using Audacity to record and have set the recording preference device to be Wave (E-MU _-DSP). When I hit record I get an error

'Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and the projhect template'

And I cant record anything.

In the built in Windows sound recorder, when I hit record, I get this error

'An audio recording device cannot be found'

Everything seems to be functioning perfectly, yet i just cant record anything. Can anyone help ?

A:cant record audio

Do you have a "System Mixer" or "What You Hear" option for recording in the Sound Panel, in the Control Panel? That is normally what is used to record audio, either streaming audio from the internet or sound that you are hearing on your PC"s speakers.

can u record audio on speakers bec my friend sad u can but i have no cule and i dont got the money right now to bye a mic so can aney one help me?:hotbounce

A:record audio

speakers were not meant to record they were meant to produce.
a mic uses a diaphragm to record sound and store it somewhere. a speaker uses electricity to create sound. there would be no way for the speaker to record the information and the speaker is most likely not sensitive enough to pick up sounds.
there is no way i know of to record through a speaker.

I can't get any sound recording program to record the audio from my computer (specifically a midi keyboard program that I use to record melodies). My old desktop worked fine in this department, but this newer laptop refuses to 'hear' any sounds without a microphone.

I read post #2 in this thread:
and looked at my audio recording properties. As you can see from the attached image, I only have microphone and line in options.

How do I get other audio to be recordable? Even getting the default Windows Sound Recorder to work would be good enough for my purposes.


A:Record Audio

This page talks about how the wave option is hidden in Vista and how to restore it, but I have XP, so (a) it should be there and (b) there is no recording tab to go to like the instructions for Vista describe. So why is there no wave option on my XP recording options?

Apparently this a problem with the crappy sound cards (SigmaTel) that Dell installs on their laptops, which do not include the wave mix/stereo mix option.

Has anyone with the same hardware found a good solution? I have tried several regularly suggested sound recording programs, but not have worked to capture the computer sound.

Hi helgib, you're back so soon.

Go to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Audio -> Sound Recording
Confirm your Mic is selected

Click on Volume
And confirm Mic Volume is ticked and volume up

If you click on Advanced, there is also a Mic boost option under Advaced settings again.

I want to record audio from one of my workout videos to take with me on a trip. In the past, I had done this with audacity. However, when I open audacity now on Win 8, it says there is no sound device. Does anyone know of a way to just record the sound output from my machine? I.e. I would play the entire video, and just record the sound and take that with me.

A:Record Audio?

You need to have the "System Mixer" (may be called "Stereo Mix") selected as the default Recording Device.

"What U Hear" Recording - Enable - Windows 7 Forums

I'm not using my Win 8 system right now so I can't tell you exactly how to access the Sound Panel, but in the Recording Tab section if the System Mixer/Stereo Mix is show, enable it and set it as the default recording device. Audacity should be able to use this.

If its not shown, RIGHT click in an blank area in the panel and then click to show both Disconnected and Disabled Devices. If the System Mixer/Stereo Mix is now shown, you can set it as the default recording device.

This assumes you have the correct sound driver installed from either the PC vendor or motherboard vendor, as applicable. If you only have the generic basic function Windows installed HD Audio Codec that will not get you what you want. (Also please fill in the My System Specs - it helps us to try and help you).

A:ATI TV Wonder & MMC - Record Audio?


Well, this is proving fun. I have read a few things and one bit says

What audio formats are supported during capture?
Supported audio formats range from 11.025KHz, 8-bit mono to 44.1KHz 16-bit stereo (The TV WONDER™ VE and TV WONDER™ USB Edition can only capture TV in mono). The audio capture can vary depending on the video captured.

So far, it looks like it will not support .wav's. You say that you got MMC 7.0 with your Tuner card. What is the name of the card?

Can't find much on it, sorry.

I'm using a DELL Inspiron 1525 with Win Vista.  When I turn it on it goes to the black and white screen where it tells me there was an error and gives me options to restart on safe mode, restart windows, normally, etc.  No matter which option I choose ultimately it just ends back at that screening again after attempting to go through the process.  It's as though I'm constantly turning my computer on and off and on and off. 
I tried putting in the windows disc that came with the laptop but nothing happened that was any different.  I tried a different Windows disc and still nothing.  Starting in any kind of mode, advanced or otherwise, does nothing.  I'm not concerned about losing information on this computer.  Formatting/reinstalling is fine with me but it won't let me get that far.  Thank you ahead of time for your help!

Hi folks,
I want to record an Internet radio show, but don't know how to go about it.
I have downloaded a couple of programs (ScrewLab and RipCast), but they both require you to enter the Web address of the stream.
I can't do this, because the radio stream from the station ( opens in a separate pop-up window which doesn't specify its address.
I'm sure this must be a simple thing to do, but since I've not done it before, I don't know where to start!

Otherwise, you'll need either "total recorder" or

Seems all the freeware ones are off the net due to fear of the DMCA.

So, as the title states, I would like to be able to record the audio coming through my computer. The problem is I only have one audio jack, which is only line out (I use a USB microphone).

A:How can I record streaming audio???

Fixed (I think ....?) Turns out there's no "Stereo Mix" option in my Control Panel sound boxes .. apparantly no one else has it either in Windows 7??? depending on sound card ... Well, a work-around is to connect a male mini-plug "Y" into [one of] the laptop's headphone outs; then run a mini-plug cord (male-to-male) from it to the laptop mic "in" ... that leaves one unused female mini-plug on the "Y" .. which you can then run your headphones (or speakers ) off of. Found that solution online .. got the parts; it works now. Still baffled why there's no "Stereo Mix" in Windows 7 ....?

I cannot record/capture the audio sound playing from a media player on my laptop desktop. However, the recording software's i've tried using (Audacity) (Total Recorder) picks-up/records the sound from the TV or any other sound in the room.

For some reason unknown i only have microphone showing under the Recording Tab.

(1) I have gone into recordings and there is no sign of (Stereo Mix)
(2) I have Right Clicked - That shows - Show Disabled Devices & Show Disconnected Devices
(3) Nothing appears
(4) I have downloaded and installed - High Definition Audio Codecs (Software)
(5) I have gone back into recordings and there is no sign of (Stereo Mix)
(6) I have Right Clicked again - That shows - Show Disabled Devices & Show Disconnected Devices
(7) Still nothing

Grateful for any advice.


A:Cannot Record Audio Sound

You need Stereo Mix.

Please post your system specs. Can't really help you without knowing what you have.
Also did this ever work? Is this a PC that was upgraded from some other OS or did it come with Windows 10?

If it never worked, there are some PC's that the PC Vendor has disabled Stereo Mix and you can't enable it. I have that problem on a 1 year old Toshiba Laptop. The only way I can get Stereo Mix would be to use a USB connected sound "card" that has that option. If it were a desktop I could install a sound card with that option.

Windows XP Professional, using iTunes radio. What's the best way to record off the internet stations onto my hard drive, with optimal sound quality?

A:Best Way To Record Audio off The Internet?

I don't use Itunes radio, but I do record a lot off the internet.

The easiest option, if you can access the stream directly (sometimes called "Wave out" or "Stereo mix"). This requires no additional hardware. There are plenty of recording packages out there, like Audacity, that will record this way if your drivers permit. If you're using sound support on your motherboard you can expect to get some noise and interference -- disk accesses, etc., will put some buzz into your audio. I use this method to record spoken-word audio to listen later on my MP3 player and the interference is minimal and acceptable.

If you need to eliminate as much interference as possible, a good quality sound card will isolate you from motherboard "noises" and provide a much quieter recording. But you have to figure the expense and inconvenience.

If you can't access the stereo output directly you'll have to use a patch cable to connect your "line out" port to your "line in" port. If your sound card is susceptible to interference this will increase it, but it is an option.

Hello. I was wondering how I can transfer the audio from the TV/VCR to my computer. I want the audio to be crisp and clear, so using a standard computer microphone would not work.

There must be some kind of wire to connect from the TV to the computer in order to get the audio to have the same quality as it does on the VHS.

Someone told me to use a Y Cable. So I bought one on ebay and connected the black piece to the Line In part in the back of my computer and I connected the red and white to the TV. Nothing ever recorded even when I switched the recording to Line In.

Does anyone know how to do this?

A:Just want to record audio from the internet

I don't have Windows 7 so I can't be specific. For whatever reason, Windows has never made an effort to improve basic tools. It's really difficult to find the audio settings directly and it provides no indication of the sound levels. Windows comes with a simple recorder Start menu/All programs/Accessories/Sound recorder. You can copy the shortcut to wherever is convenient. Most people seem to favour freeware Audacity but if you don't like Real Player, Audacity may seem more daunting.In addition you will need to navigate to the audio mixer. On the recording mixer you need to enable "stereo mix" or "what u hear" depending on the audio system. This link tells you how to do that if you have not already. Once set, the recording setting should(?) stay the same for subsequent sessions.I've made my own macro to start up the recording mixer plus a VU meter but unfortunately that would be no use to you.

A:Is this hard disk for a laptop or Notebook or does it not matter?

Generally speaking a 2.5" hard drive (form factor) is laptop while 3.5" is desktop. Depending on how the enclosure or bay is designed, it's possible to put a 2.5" drive in a 3.5" enclosure or bay. As far as the slow boot times, you might want to run the usual maintenance/troubleshooting steps. Things like disk cleanup, check disk, defrag, system file checker scan, etc. Of course it might also be an indication that the drive is failing. These troublshooting tutorials could help diagnose the issue(s).

Try running hard drive Diagnostics

Hard Drive Installation and Diagnostic Tools Links to Manufacturers Utilities

You can ID the drive maker in the Bios (F1) then download the proper bootable diagnostics for your brand of drive.
Pressing F12 when the Toshiba logo appears should take you to the Boot Device menu, then choose the CD/DVD drive.

If you have no luck try the Seagate Diags, SeaTools for DOS

And report back

Damage to the drive is one possibility and damage to the electronics is another that is harder to test for.

What model of Satellite Pro is it? For example S300-EZ1511 is different than S300-EZ1512 therefore it helps to know.

Currently, I have a simple integrated sound card and can only select either the stereo mixer or the mic as a source for recording audio but I would like to be able to record from both at the same time.

I haven't been keeping up with sound recording on Windows 7, but if you want to record what you are hearing, you generally need a recording device called "stereo mix".

Some sound cards provide stereo mix. Some don't. On earlier operating systems, most sound cards had that functionality. Not so for Windows 7.

My motherboard uses a Realtek audio chip, which works fine for stereo mix with Audacity.

If your sound card doesn't provide stereo mix, you can instead use an external USB sound card.

I used to use a Behringer UFO 202 for that purpose and it worked OK. Cost about $35.

You can also investigate other drivers for your sound card---such as those for Vista. That may or may not help.

As a last resort, you may be able to record what you hear by running a standard cable from your laptop speaker output to the microphone input.

A:Record Microphone and Computer Audio Out?

The free, open-source Audacity is a very popular sound recording and editing program. It can record your speakers and mic input.

You can use it to record the sound and your voice, and put it together with the video. If it cannot record both simultaneously, record only the speakers, put it with the video and add some narration in your own voice.

A:No Stereo Mix - Record from two audio sources?

Yes, the "Stereo mix" option is being removed from new drivers. Nobody has announced it, as far as I know, but the recording industry never liked it (calling it the "Analog Loophole").

You might try getting a patch cable to run directly from the line-out output of your sound card to the line-in input of the same card.

Other than that, I have no ideas.

Several years ago I purchased Total Recorder, can be set to record and save to the HDD any audio being heard in the speakers or headset. It supports saving as formats such as .mp3 and .wma, etc. It allows editing such as recording the complete audio from a DVD movie [I got it to get the songs from Paint Your Wagon] then cut out clips or songs as desired and save by name. It's not as automatic as some would desire but a very useful way to get music not otherwise available. There's probably some free versions of similar programs but having one that works ended my search for others.

Hello, the sound in my laptop Gateway MX6956 running Win XP Pro SP3 is good, but I can't seem to record any audio/music through Sound Recorder sndrec32.exe or through programs like Audacity or Mp3 My Mp3 Recorder. I'm not trying to record through a microphone but just audio/music from my media players or online sites. I believe this problem was present when I bought the laptop some 2 and 1/2 years ago, but I just ignored it.

I went to
and installed the latest appropriate audio driver, SigmaTel Audio Driver version 5.10.5082.0, but still no luck recording.

Would appreciate help. Thanks.

I'm having audio problem with Frap, when I review a video I just finish recording, but I couldn't hear any audio.

Maybe its because I'm using an On-board sound card that came with my motherboard instead of an alternative sound card?

I tried using different audio output features that Frap give, it still won't capture in-game audio.
Heres the present set up for Frap I had tried.

Yes, you may have to install a PCI based sound card

BBC R2's Listen Again facility is disabled for the best broadcasts which are in the wee small hours. Is there a way in which, other than staying up all night, I can record the programmes either on line or on FM, rather like what people do with programmable video recorders (I am not into videos)? I am experimenting with a program called Freecorder 4 but I don't think this will work other than in real time. Same applies to Audacity as far as I can tell. Would a video recorder do this? Any other ideas?

I can't help with your problem but I will tell you this. I installed that Freecorder 4 just yesterday and it caused a lot of problems. The mouse was freezing,no right click and
I was getting the "Windows has encountered an error" every few minutes. Tried every thing I could think of to find the problem and finally I said to myself--self just uninstall the program and I did- not more problems.

I'm looking for a simple audio software that records audio from a microphone (just like the Windows Sound Recorder for instance) and allows to listen to the recorded sound as it's being recorded, in real time, without the need to record, save and then listen. Could you help me out please?

Thanks a lot for any and all suggestions.

Unless you are using Head Phones, when you are recording, the mic will pic up the sounds from the speakers and record that too.
Audacity is a great program for recording audio

i cant record anything with Soundforge 9 because off echo.
before i could record for exemple music i made with fruityloops directly to soundforge 9 now it is impossible with the new mainboard and a realtek audio onboard device.
i choose "stereo mix" as source since it is the only possibility to record directly what goes through the soundcard but the sound is echoing and repeats itself.
on my old motherboard i managed to record my music that way now it is impossible.
i still can record youtube for exemples using the windows default recording thingy but since it is limited to 60sec that doesnt quite help me recording myself mixing.
anyone has an idea on how i could fix this so it works normaly again plz ?
plz dont direct me to sony froums, i went there allready and there is nearly no support.

A:Realtek HD audio input problem when trying to record with Sf9

i finaly got it working on quite a weird way :S. i use the asio4all drivers wich results in being now able to record the sound but not being able to hear it afterwards (only in SF9) without switching back the settings evrytime im done with recording.
in audacity i dont have this problem , it records without echo and without switching anything curiosly, only problem is the GUI wich i dont like.
at least i dont have this friggin echo anymore when i record myself.

still looking for a solution without all the switching though

Toshiba A135-S4447 laptop running Vista Home Premium....I can't record sound. I plugged in an external mic and made sure volumes (incl. wheel) were OK, but no sound! My slide-show narration had a KB size and length, but no playback sound. (OK, there was slight soft static when I turned up the volume high.) I tried to record in other programs, but failed. What's up?

I have a vocal microphone which i currently just use through a Line 6 amplifier, but would now like to use for recording vocals, not at a pro level, more as a hobby. i understand i cant just plug it into my PC and have it work, but if i bought something like an Asus Xonar DX sound card would that convert the input to a recognisable format to record with?

also are there any programs like Garageband for Windows?

Basically when i had my old soundcard installed i could easily record any sound or audio playing on my computer by using some software called Audio Record Wizard When i opened up the software i could then select which recording device to use Since i have removed my old soundcard and installed my new EMU m soundcard i can no longer record anything onto my computer audio Cannot sound EMU 1212m soundcard with or record When i try and use the Audio Record Wizard sofware i can t select any recording device because the drop down box is blank I have tried recording using my real player When i press record then it looks Cannot record audio or sound with EMU 1212m soundcard like it records it but when i go to play the recorded file Cannot record audio or sound with EMU 1212m soundcard it plays it with no sound When i go to Start button and go to Control Panel and then select Sounds and Audio Devices click on the Audio tab when i press the volume button in the Cannot record audio or sound with EMU 1212m soundcard Sound recording section i get a message saying quot There is a problem with your sound hardware To install mixer devices go to Control Panel click Printers and Other Hardware and then click Add Hardware quot I have installed all the soundcard drivers and software so why is this happening Please note that i can play audio and can hear sounds on my computer it is just recording which i can t do nbsp

A:Cannot record audio or sound with EMU 1212m soundcard

Was there software that came with the interface? The software apps you listed I believe aren't compatible with the EMU's Asio driver. Try using a different program. Cubase, Ableton Live, Fruityloops to name a few. Also a free app I use that is ASIO compatible called Reaper might work well. Also, when you say you can hear sounds from your computer are you listening to it through the EMU hardware? If you can't hear any audio through the interface then something isn't configured properly in your audio settings.

I'm trying to record some cassettes using the integrated line-in port of my Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 motherboard and even setting the input level to the lowest possible setting results in record levels WAY too high. (I'm using Audacity 1.2 to do the recording.) Any ideas? I'm quite a novice at this. Thanks in advance.

Hey I have an Asus P N-E motherboard with an onboard Realtek HD Audio soundcard I run Windows XP Professional SP My problem is that even though the audio card seems to recognize the microphone When I plug it in it asks me what I plugged in etc but it does not record any sound from it I got the boost on and everything that people have said in threads with similar problems I have CD Volume Line In and Stereo Mix muted in the record part of the mixer and Mic Volume unmuted When I try to record it just hears noise Like when there s no from microphone won't sound Realtek Audio record HD channel on a TV I ve tried latest drivers from Asus website and drivers on the motherboard s driver CD The ones from Asus website was version Another thing worth mentioning is that when I got it the microphone was working fine and the day after it suddenly was not anymore All the same settings nothing changed I know the mic works Sennheiser PC mic cause I tried it Realtek HD Audio won't record sound from microphone on another PC and it worked perfectly That PC has a Realtek AC onboard card nbsp

A:Realtek HD Audio won't record sound from microphone

Ummmm try un-muting line in.. Haven't used my mic in a while but i think you don't want that muted....

and go to Control Panel > sound and Audio and make sure ALL THE MICROPHONE configs in there are correct

ALSO if none of the above work check how it's plugged into your computer, make sure the plugs are in the right spots and re-arrange them and try them.

I have a glitched microphone it has 2 seperate inputs to go into my computer. Only one of them really matters but for some reason my mic won't work unless i have them both in and the main cord in the wrong sockets according to the directions and colors on the plugs....... It took me months to realize this..

I also have AC97 Realtek audio so maybe it's a glitch with them............

Anyways i would say more than likely it is because of your plugs in your computer, if your getting fuzzy sound from your spekaers when speaking into the mic i would definitely look at the plugins.

and if that doesn't work check all microphone and audio configs from your control panel

If your sound works but doesn't read your microphone means your sound card is working fine, your just doing something wrong

I have the CeQuadrat Just Burn and am trying to make an audio CD. The program says it takes wavs but all that I have on my hard drive that were taken from the 'net' have a red icon in front..meaning they won't work. Only a couple of the small wavs.. like one lines of songs have the green icon in front and will work.
What can be done??
Also if I get that figured out do you have to have the 'audio CDs' to be able to play them in a cd player? or will any CD-R disk work?

I am running Wavepad (and have tried Audacity and other software) on Windows 7, with a Creative Soundblaster Live 24-bit external soundcard, with Cambridge Soundworks speakers plugged into it

The problem is that I can record audio fine (though at a lower quality) without the soundcard plugged in, but once it is plugged in, whichever input option I choose.

Can anyone please help?

I am using Nero Vison Express 3.1 and wish to record from audio track 2 from avi file.

I have an avi file which has Spanish in audio track 1 and English in audio track 2.
When I preview in menu and click the icon to play it plays in Spanish.
So if I burn it as is, it will playback in Spanish on DVD that I will burn.

So how can I set it to it will record on audio track 2 in English ?

I know DVD Flick you can change which audio track you like to record, but Nero Vison Express 3.1, there doesn't seem to be an option to choose the audio track ?

I like making menus on the DVD therefore I like using Nero Vision Express to do it.


A:Nero Vison Express 3.1 wish to record audio track 2

NeroVision only uses the First Audio track on a file.
You could just remove the unwanted track using one of the VirtualDub Mods VirtualDubMod - Browse Files at

Basically you would "Dub"/copy out a new .avi with only the audio stream you want. Or you could try just moving the audio stream you want up to be the first one, then you may still be able to switch streams when the Dubbed .avi file is played. NeroVision would still only use the first one, but it would be the one you want. So, change the order or remove the unwanted audio stream in the .avi file before feeding it to Nero.
