    Earlier, I formatted my PC and reinstalled Win7. Now Stereo Mix wont work. I've reinstalled the drivers (not sure if correct ones) and I've also checked off "show disconnected" or "show disabled".

    Please help. I need to record computer sound with camtasia studios to finish my Minecraft Lets Play :3

    So after you checked Show Disabled Devices, you did not see the Stereo Mix icon in the Recording Devices dialog box? If you do, did you enable it?

    If you do not see it, you may need to load a legacy driver for your system.

    What sound card or motherboard do you have so I can check for a driver.

    ok somethin i do when i repair peoples pcs or install windows for them

    windows update, optional updates, you should see a list of drivers, click the required drivers, install them and reboot

    hopefully it should sort it
