Thanks. I know this shows my ignorance, but where do I look for "stereo mix" or "what you hear" fro recording - Creator, Control Panel?
The sound card is, I think, RealTEk HD - may be built in to motherboard. Here again, I don't have a real detailed spec sheet but the machine is brand new.
If its a matter of the sound card, I guess I could buy an add-on but what if it's the chipset? If that's the problem, that would have been a deal breaker when I bought this thing...
