I want to use the Stereo Mix feature of Realtek HD Audio for an online music quiz I am hosting for friends during lockdown using Skype. My Lenovo laptop uses Conexant SmartAudio HD on Windows 8.1, and so I downloaded Realtek HD Audio, and can now see it in the Sound, Video and Game controllers section of Device Manager. However, it has an exclamation mark on a yellow ground next to it, and when I try to start it, I get the message "This device cannot start. (Code 10). The request is not supported". I have tried various things suggested from browser searches, none of which have worked. Am I wasting my time?
Thanks for any help.
