Check your devices are working in Windows settings… can you hear sounds and see the windows level bars moving. Then open audacity…Can you see the devices listed.
Try Windows Direct sound Host, Try Stereo mix (it may need enabled in Windows), and Speakers headphones output.
Not really the same proble, but can you play MP3 etc files in Audacity and is your Mic or linein working
I have the same problem (I can’t record the sound from the PC itself). I read and performed all the procedures taught in this topic but unfortunately without success!
Even a few weeks ago I opened a topic regarding this problem, but I still can’t solve it.
When I click to record, the images appear as I started this topic
Any help or guidance would be most welcome.
You need to make sure all device drivers are installed , enabled and working in windows itself before trying to get it working in Audacity.
then Close down and reboot, and open Audacity, select the device you are using, if internal sound eh playing mp3 or youtube you probably need windows Mixer. Get it going from windows control panel sound…enable it and set volume to max…also untick boxes to disable sound enancement.
You need to post here what is happening…dont just say it is not working
