Hi again
I am unable to record any sounds using Windows sound recorder or any other program. In the Sounds dialogue box? under Microphone is says Hi Definition Audio Device and Currently unavailable. Ditto under Line In.
Have checked and Windows says all drivers are up to date. Speakers work fine on playback and system sounds. Using onboard audio card M4N 78AM mother*****.
please assist.

I initially installed Audacity but the GUI looked a bit complex/unfriendly for me so I got Cakewalk which looks great but hey ...
I have no sound recording capacity.
This is the problem...

Fixed it myself! Thanks for the assist. Just a matter of removing and reinstalling drivers. Thanks so much me. You're welcome. I mean I'm welcome. No you are. You're too kind. Not at all.....

sometimes I stumble upon the answer to a problem just the same way. I try to look at my computer as a hobby, so it isn't critical if, say, I can't record sound yet.
Good job.

Patience is a virtue. Especially when you are getting free advice.
