Alright, I'm probably screwed, but I thought I would post and see if anyone has a work around.
Alright, I have a Dell XPS M1530 laptop (I know some of you cringed right there, sorry ) and my audio card is the basic one that came with the computer (also another cringe). Anyway, when I record with FRAPS I can hear all the in-game sounds and people talking, but I can't hear my own voice. Is there any way to get it to record my voice as well (preferably through my headphone's mic). My OS is Vista by the way.
Nice link, but the soundcard I have apparently isn't a Soundblaster card. High Definition Audio 2.0 is apparently the sound thing I have in the computer right now. I can't find a screen that lets me "unmute" my mic as described in the guides. Here is what I see when I click on my sound option in the control panel and in the recording section.
Alright I've made some headway, or so I thought. I found the area where my microphone was unmuted but FRAPS still won't record my voice. The weird thing is I can't hear my own voice when I talk, but if I rub my microphone I can hear it in the speakers. I've tested this too by raising the speakers volume and the rubbing sound is coming through the speakers, but no voice.
I had a good look at your pictures and I really cant say, i have only ever recorded on xp
The only slight link i can give is once i tried to help a friend unmute his USB mic on an XP machine but we couldn't do it, after trying everything. If you can plug in a mic to a soundcard, instead of a USB mic, then try that. This is a weaker lead to solve your problem, but its all i can come up with
Thanks Silver for all the help. I just think it is because I have a very bad soundcard. Again, my soundcard is what came default with my laptop. So I don't get all those options such as "What U Hear" and stuff like that. This summer I'm going to try and get this soundcard upgraded even if that means sending it in to Dell and having them do it. Thanks again Silver for your help.
I found a solution to your problem.. Not a great 1, but a working 1 if you really want to get it working.
I had this problem, and fraps would only record if my mic is played back to my headset with a lot of hissing noise (Gives you a headache within a minute and causes in-game voip issues), and after a lot of messing around, and Fraps support calls, I realised I had a spare M-Audio USB pre-amp.. I tried setting up my mic through that, but it didn't work still. Then I see Fraps has a lovely new option for recording external sound too, and so pointed it to the m-audio. Then I set my mic to playback, but not through my default soundcard (and through the headset), but through the m-audio (With nothing plugged into it). I now can record all sounds!
I have no idea why my setup doesn't allow mic to record like everyone elses, seeems like having 2 soundcards is useful sometimes!
Needs Vista/Win7 and latest version of Fraps, and a secondary soundcard or stupid external usb preamp (Normally used for professional microphones/guitars input)
