I have E521 with Windows Vista Premium 32-bit. I need/want the stereo mix output too. So I can stream music in chat rooms and such. I know a lot of local bands and musicians, etc. that I want to try and help promote. I did look for an update to my driver which I downloaded and installed one that was given to me on dell.com but that didn't give me a stereo mixer. I read that someone online tried contacting Dell and they told them that they can get this feature to do what I want from a third party software but they didn't tell them what softwares do this and such? I go in both Yahoo and Paltalk chat rooms. I really don't wanna do it thru my mic 'cause the sound quality is terrible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and if you can give me FREE softwares for my OS and my PC for what I want/need to do, I'd greatly appreciate that too. Dell doesn't seem to be doing anything for existing customers with this problem. So thought I'd ask on here to see if anyone else can help me. Thanks.
P.S. I almost forgot to mention my sound card. lol. It's a SigmaTel High Definition Audio Codec. My mic is plugged in the front of my pc and that's a Logitec headset mic and I switched my desktop speakers from the ones Dell gave me to Kinyo desktop speakers and they are all plugged in the pc regular (meaning they aren't USB connection).
it does have stereo mix but its hidden a regedit tweak will show it up but when i did it my sound went out but i can still hear sound from my head set, im working on it as we speak as soon as i figure it out you all will know ;)
