Sound Recorder not working



Dell XPS 420, Vista SP1, Soundblaster Audigy SE. Sound recorder opens
normally but will not record sound. Neither will the Creative Labs software
or Adobe Soundbooth CS3. Under Sound/Recording tab I have Microphone,
Line-In, Auxiliary and S/PDIF-In. Under Auxiliary I see SB Audigy Sorking
and a green/white check (like default).

In BIOS I turned OFF the on-board sound (Sigmatel), it was set to Auto

Sound plays normally.

What can I do to get the Sound Recorder working?



I got the sound recorder working. Made two fatal errors.

First did not know that sound I wished to record had to input through the
microphone jack on the sound card.

Then I read and followed the Sony receiver instructions to get sound output.

All solved.
