Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all,  

 

On windows 7, there used to be this menu that would come up anytime you plugged something into the 3.5 mm audio jack, asking you if it was a headphone, line in, etc.  This seems to be missing from Windows10 - how can I enable this, or something similar?

 

I record old records into audacity and I do this by having one end of the aux cord in the headphone jack in the stereo system, and the other end into the 3.5mm outlet in the laptop, and this system has worked reliably in all other laptops I've had. 

 

But this HP seems to omit any settings whatsoever when it comes to connecting a line into the machine.  I've been through audio settings, i've been through device and autoplay settings, I've tried downloading older drivers (error codes galore) I've tried the Waves Max Audio pro (that at least recognizes that something has been plugged in, but on my HP notebook it won't give any ability to change that device.)

 

All I need is for this machine to recognize that there's a separate line in option to feed it into audacity... for two decades this hasn't been too much to ask, but now it is.  

 

Thanks in advance!
