Thanks for you reply. Sounds like you were right vter all as HP is now t=
elling me to pay for servive or get a new sound card.
I made a mistake in my previous communication. I said that I could contr=
ol the sound from the Mic output on my stereo. I should have said HEADPH=
ONE output. So, if I buy the proper plugs will that allow me to get high=
quality sound via the stereo's headphone output(as opposed to StereoMi=
Thanks again. This should finally lay things to rest.

If you have a properly functioning sound device you should be able to get
high quality output from either the headphones output or the line/aux
output of the stereo (as long as there is not a fault with the line output
so that it is set at an excessive level). In principle the line/aux output is
often of higher quality than the headphones output as the headphones
output will have an additional stage of (possibly) low quality amplification
to make the signal suitable for headphones. In practice on lower quality
stereo systems and using a lower quality computer sound device the
difference between the outputs may not be noticeable, but the headphones
out does allow you to vary the output from the stereo if desired, whereas
the line/aux output usually doesn't.
Also the sound device needs to be able to record direct from line-in, not
by recording the playthrough of the line-in that you hear through
the computer speakers, which will give you an additional layer of possible
errors if you try and record that.
