      I had this problem too and in my case I found that StereoMix was disabled in the driver file. I documented my solution which involves editing the driver file and re-installing it. Search google for ‘Windows 7: Can’t see Stereo Mix on Dell Inspiron 7520’ and you will find the thread at sevenforums.com

      Other people have reported this solution working for Windows 8 also.
