    Well, driver version, make sure you've got the latest version and check the volume settings for what input you have checked for recording.

    The executable or the ZIP file, whichever you want. They might appear to be 3.96 but that's just version of the whole package, the audio driver inside is 5.1.6200.

    Check in your recording volume control panel that internal loopback is muted on the card.

    Well, open up the volume control, then go to Options>Properties, and click adjust volume for recording. Press OK, and mute whichever channel is something like "output" or "mix" or "loopback"
