It all started, when my computer became out of gear because of the malfunctioning video card. We could not repair it since, so I am forced to use my laptop for everyday workings, including video and sound recording. This is where the troubles have started.
For some reason, I am unable to record audio from my laptop. You probably know these sound recording software - you define a file name, push the REC button, and the program saves the sounds into an MP3 or WAV file. This way, you can have music and sound effects from various programs and videos and save them as WAV or MP3 files.
The problem is, none of these audio applications seem to be working. The first one - Audio Playback Recorder - stated that "Your sound card is not capable of recording". The second one - All Sound Recoder XP - wouldn't even let me choose the sound card, and only records from the microphone. Last,but not least, my video recorder application also failed (Growler Gun Cam). It recognizes the laptop's sound card, but the sounds of the recording it creates is entirely screwed, choppy, and broken. I am curious about is there a way to fix this recording problem? I can't record any sound or video this way, hence I can't do my job either! Please, tell me a working solution for this problem!
The laptop is an Acer Extensa 5635Z, and it has some kind of "Conexant HD Audio" for sound card, if I'm correct. The operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 3.
