View Full Version : Can't record sound

12-06-2005, 03:52 PM
I'm running Windows XP and am unable to record the sounds that are playing perfectly well from external devices plugged into my HP Pavillion 1580. Thus, not only can I not record these sounds from Audobe Audition or from my earlier Cool Edit, but I can't even record these sounds from the little Sound Recorder facility that comes with Windows. I'm sure it must be something simple - but I'm blowed if I can figure our what.

A similar problem as you described occurred on the HP 510a.

The solution for that was to do the following:

Open volume control by double clicking the sound card icon in the systemtray
Click the advanced button
On the microphone volume control, remove the tick from 1 +20db gain and click close
Close the volume controls
Now repeat above process, but this time replace the tick next to 1 +20db gain

Perhaps this will work for you too. No harm in trying.
