I’m trying to connect a record turntable (AT-PL50) to my HP PC computer, Windows XP. I can get a signal using the microphone jack and record satisfactorily through the Cakewalk software but, of course, only in mono.) I can't get a signal using the stereo inputs. I've been into Control Panel, selected various inputs, used volume sliders, set the turntable to pre-amp on and off. Any ideas would be gratefully received!

In which stereo sound card slot do you connect the turntable to? Is it line-in? Make sure that you are using a stereo jack to connect to the sound card. If you use stereo jack make sure it's not damaged by replacing it or by connecting it to another device as they tend to have faults in my experience.

As for microphone getting mono signal is normal (but according to your post you already know)

Also, did you set your sound card/windows to select line in to get signal?

Thanks for your reply. I tried different cables and that doesn't seem to be the problem. My HP has audio inputs at the back and also in the front. I've tried both front and back inputs and in the recording control I have tried selecting Line in, CD/video in and aux/line 2 in. None work. I was hoping there was some other control with the op sys that I was unaware of. Maybe I have a lemon. The unit had to have the DVD/CD writer replaced under warranty because it didn't work. I'm thinking my next computer won't be an HP.
