Unable to record in stereo with USB mic

Hi All, I was using a Dell Laptop from my office for all my recordings using Behringer C-1 Studio Condenser Microphone and Behringer U-Phoria UM2 audio interface connected to laptop with USB cable. Everything was perfectly working till my office decided to change my laptop to newer Dell with i7 Core.

Now the same setup with new laptop is recording only in Mono (I can see 2 tracks, but one track is full silence), even though I have taken care of the audio settings of laptop as well as audacity.

If I select windows built in mic array as input, then it records in stereo.

The same audio setup works fine with other laptops, records in stereo.

How do I fix this problem?

is a mono, not stereo, microphone.
Only one track is required for mono, 2 tracks = unnecessary duplication.

You can split track to two mono tracks, then delete [ x ] the silent track.

If you chose mono in [Behringer] USB properties (advanced) you will restore your previous arrangement : with the mono track being duplicated.
