Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I changed my hardrive and installed Windows Vista Home Premium, I have been attempting to record music that I am sending from my Yamaha Musical keyboard, I have Audacity which is musical editing software that is made to work in conjunction with the recorder in my computer. However, now that I switched to Vista I can't seem to find or use the built in recorder, It worked when i was using Windows XP pro. all that is now listed in the device manager under audio,video and game contollers is the Soundmax sound card.
The problem concerned a lack of recording device within the operating system because the device was disabled by default.
Select : 'Start : Control Panel : Hardware and Sound : Sound'
The small 'Sound' window includes 'Playback', 'Record' and 'Sounds' tabs. Select the 'Record' tab.
Within the 'Record' tab, within the 'Select a recording device below to modify settings:' RIGHT-Click within this blank area and select 'Show Disabled Devices'
It is likely that the 'Stereo Mix' associated with the sound card is disabled. RIGHT-Click and select 'Enable'. While here, select the 'Properties' of the Stereo Mix' device.
Within the Properties there is likely to be a 'Levels' tab. Select this and ensure that the level is reasonable high - otherwise the recordings will be at a very low/quiet level.
OK this and return to Audacity. It should now record.
Other issues might be :-
I suspect that enabling the Stereo Mix feature of the sound card could cause problems with some of Vista's multimedia playing software. The intention of Vista is to stop users recording copyrighted materials! (And even if your use is legitimate, the secure pipe for media has been broken and might stop the media player working properly).
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Since your keyboard is not visible in the device manager or control panel that means you have not installed the correct drivers drivers for your keyboard. Below I'm providing the link from where you can download the latest driver for your keyboard kindly uninstall any drivers if you have installed earlier for your keyboard. disconnect your keyboard from pc before installing the drivers. connect only after installation or if asked by installation. In case you get any error just comment back. First check wether your OS is 32 bit or 64 bit then only choose the correct driver.
