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working input source or having the full range of input sources available, usually mean your sound device has faulty, outdated or inappropriate drivers.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.
If the recording problem persists, note the name of the Driver Provider in Device Manager.
If the driver provider is Microsoft, note the name of the sound device you right-clicked over.
Go to Start menu, right-click on Computers and click Properties.
On the left sidebar of the System dialog box, select Advanced System Settings.
