If the recording problem persists, note the name of the Driver Provider in Device Manager.
Problems such as recordings freezing up, difficulty in selecting the correct, working input source or having the full range of input sources available, usually mean your sound device has faulty, outdated or inappropriate drivers.
If this occurs it is important that the drivers are updated.
Then on all versions of Windows, expand "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" by clicking on the sign, right-click over the sound device and click "update driver".
After the update (even if more recent drivers were not found), you should right-click over the device again, click Properties and then on the Driver tab to check the "Driver Provider".
These must be replaced with drivers made by the manufacturer of your hardware, so they are correctly matched to that hardware.
