I am working on an HP p6557 computer, and trying to use the stereo mix option to record all sounds played by my computer to help record skype conversations with Audacity. I have installed all my sound drivers and updated my computer in all the ways needful to enable the Stereo Mix option, and I have enabled it. However, it is not picking up any sound when I attempt to use it. Is there any known solution to this problem?

I do a moderate bit of sound recording from time to time and 'Stereo Mix' isn't always the best choice. Try either 'Wave' or 'Line-in' as an alternative. It can be very annoying - hearing the audio coming across your speakers and the level meters in your recording software showing nothing.

That sounds quite sensible, however I don't have either of those options on my PC. Stereo mix is the only option I have when I reveal all disabled devices on my computer. If it is possible to add Wave or Line-in to the possible selections I do not know how, and a cursory search for a method has left me grabbing at air.

I'd try uninstalling current audio drivers...then reinstalling same.
