Record output sound?
I was wondering if it was possible to record the output sound, without a mic (the sounds from the speakers/headphones). Would Audacity be able to do that?

Yes, you just need to pick the correct source to record, probably Line out.

I looked in the new Audacity, but there appears to be no line out option for recording.
What could cause this? Me using Integrated Sound?

Which options do you have?
I just installed Audacity, and I think the option to use is Stereo mix.

I looked for stereo mix, but I can't seem to find it.
I also tried following the Audacity's website for Realtek Integrated, but all that resulted in was disabling of my audio.
I guess it's time to reinstall drivers.

I tried reinstalling the Realtek drivers, but that didn't work.
Perhaps I'll just get a new soundcard that is cheap.
Unfortunately, there goes my last PCI slot.

What exactly are you trying to record?

And, I won't be distributing it online. It would only be used for personal use.
My main question now is how to properly uninstall Realtek drivers, and everything that comes with it.
I have used the Windows Add/Remove Programs, and I have tried using the setup type of uninstallation, both of which failed to do the job, at least I think. Or, the drivers aren't installing properly, which is probably due to the old drivers still somehow showing up.
Windows detects the Realtek device, but can't install it, even with the CD which has the installer.
As always, thanks for the help.

I fixed the problem by installing a new sound card (actually, an old Creative).
I was also able to get record the output sound.
If only the computer didn't give me a BSOD after the third run through of the song (trying to get the volume low enough as to prevent distortion).
But, I am pretty sure it was due to the GPU overheating, at least I hope.

I did manage to pull this off using audacity, but very tricky. Good to know. Now i can put my Eric Clapton dvd on cd
