Beats Audio doesn't control your recording and skype, so if those things weren't working it was likely some other issue. When you installed that other driver, it appears you caused a conflict. You can reinstall the Beats Audio software through Software Program Reinstallation in HP System Recovery.

Thank you for your advice. On restarting my computer the next day, it was looking for .startup as the beat audio was back? Since then beats audio is working again, however the sound recorder is still not working, I have followed the instructions for troubleshooting on the sound recorder, but still not working. I am not sure if I am not missing something small as I have tried various configurations in the audio setup. Perhaps you have some advice, it would be most appreciated.
