I am running the newest version of Audacity I just downloaded it today 2.x. I have an HP pavilion brand new running Windows 7 64bit.
When I try and record I get this error. “Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate.” There are no device settings in Audacity. When I went to my control panel I found a recording device which was supposedly connected to the mic jack at the front of the computer. When I clicked on configure and then backed out cause I didn’t see anything which might help the device disappeared. I’m not very tech savvy but have had great success with Audacity on other computers. Any help would be appreciated.
