I have a Vostro 3550 running Windws 7 64bit.
The stereo mix option is not available in the settings for the sound card. I've updated the drivers from the Dell website but no difference.
In the recording settings the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC is marked as 'unavailable'.
Is there any solution?
Thanks in advance
Bob755Im actually trying to find a solution equivalent to stereo mix for recording audio streams.
Rec.Playback will record streams. You can only have one recording source at a time, so make sure nothing else is the default source including mics. If it still is unavailable right click and look in "show disabled devices" to see if it is disabled.

Hello. IDT does not have "stereo mix". Only Sigmatel and Realtek have that recording source. Some of the IDT drivers have a similar function called Rec. Playback. On the Sounds properties it would look like this:
On the IDT Control panel it looks like this:

I don't know what you mean by the codec is unavailable. If you don't see the word "IDT" on the Sounds properties that means that the IDT driver is not installed.

Okay, I see what happened. You saw on the screen the words "X Device IDT High Definition Audio CODEC Currently unavailable", but you left out which device is unavailable, making it look like the codec (the IDT audio hardware on the motherboard) is unavailable.
Which device is unavailable?
Sorry. I didn't indicate which device is marked as unavailable because I have a French version of Windows. It probably translates to something like 'Recording.Playback'. There is an icone of a sound card. The driver appears to be installed. I did see it change to 'ready' (or something lile that) but only for a few seconds.

OK I just saw your earlier post with a screen shot. That's exactly what I have
OK, I just made it the default source and I can now record streams. Thanks for help.

Hello. The Vostro 2520 laptop has a Cirrus Logic CS4213D codec (audio chip). Very few Dells have that chip and I don't have much information about it or its driver, but as far as I have been able to determine the CS4213D does not have stereo mix.
Here is a workaround that involves some external hardware.
Connect the headphone port to the mic port with a cable. That does the same thing as basic stereo mix. To hear through the speakers, open the Sound properties (Control Panel>Sound), select the Recording tab, and make the external mic the default device. Right click on the external mic and select properties. Select the Listen tab. Check the box to "Listen to this device."
To connect headphones, get a splitter cable (a "Y" cable).
If you want to add an external mic, connect the headphone port to a little hardware mixer. Connect a mic to the mixer. Send the combined signal to the laptop's mic port.
