I have recently downloaded Audacity onto my new laptop (Dell Latitude E5520, Windows 7 Professional) having successfully used it on previous machines. I am unable to record anything because the recording devices box is empty. I’m also getting an ‘error while opening sound device’ message if I hit record.
I have tried enabling recording devices in control panel (including hidden devices) but there are none (except the option for a plug in mic).
I’d like to set up a stereo mix recording but it is not available at all.
I have two sound devices under device manager (and I have the latest drivers for each):
High Definition Audio Device

Device ID HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76E7&SUBSYS_1028049A&REV_10014&1559F42&0&0001

I’d really appreciate any help that anyone can offer.
