I'm trying to get stereo mix with Windows 7 Professional on an HP G-series notebook. I right-click the volume icon -> Recording devices -> Check show disabled devices, but nothing new comes up. My sound-card is a Conexant high definition smart audio 221. I've tried many drivers but none seem to do the trick. Is there a way to get it on here? If not, are there any sound-cards that are known to have stereo mix support?

If the Sound driver does not allow for it, there is nothing you can do other than try other drivers, which you have done.

Since it is a laptop, your only choice would be some sort of USB sound device, unless it has some sort of card slot available.

Not sure what you're asking for. If you want to change the volume of each speaker independently, then go to Control Panel>Sound>Speakers>Properties>Levels>Balance
