  2. Stereo Mix is "currently unavailable" but fixing it makes my microphone "Currently Unavailable"

    I tried to use the "Stereo Mix" to get my capture card to be able to "listen" to the desktop audio, because for some reason it doesn't just do that by itself. But the Stereo Mix said it was "Currently Unavailable." After doing some google searches, I uninstalled
    my audio driver and restarted my computer to force it to download the most updated version of the driver. (VIA HD Audio) That seemed to work and Stereo Mix was working fine, but my microphone now said "Currently Unavailable." I've looked all over and nowhere
    else does this seem to be a problem! Everyone else seems to just have the Stereo Mix "disabled" and needs to enable it or something simple. What do I do?

  3. Windows 10 Stereo Mix

    Hi Nicholas,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    Try the following steps to enable the stereo mix and check if that help.



    a) Right click on the audio icon in your system tray and select “Recording Devices” to open the Recording device settings in the “Sound” window.



    b) In the pane, right-click on a blank area, and make sure both “View Disabled Devices” and “View Disconnected Devices” options are checked. You should be able to see the “Stereo Mix” option appearing.



    c) Right-click on “Stereo Mix” and click “Enable” to be able to use it.



    This should enable the “Stereo Mix” on Windows



    Method 2:

    If the issue persists then I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the sounds card driver and check if it helps.


    • Right Click on Start, Select Device Manager.

    • Find and double-click the category of device whose driver you wish to uninstall.

    • Right-click the device, and click Uninstall.

    • Windows will prompt you to confirm the device’s removal. Click
      OK to remove the driver.

    • After the uninstallation is complete, reboot your computer as soon as possible


    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further. Thank you.
