I found a solution to a Win7 line in no sound problem.

HP Recommended
HP Z200 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a solution, not a problem, but cannot find how to post it on any forums, to help others. 

Problem was: Win 7  line-in no audio from speakers, but audio level bars are green on the recording tab under the Sound menu.

My solution is:  If you have Line-In as your default recording device (vs microphone), you must set check the 'listen to this device' in the listen submenu of  'line in' properties. Everything works fine after that.  I think this setting is meant to mute the recording source from the speakers (especially if you are recording from a mike) when it is unchecked.


Hope this helps someone.
