    If you could provide your system specs as we can't see what you have there helps,
    some systems bundle with poor audio cards ie half duplex audio cards so the stereo mix maybe missing or it's missing a crucial piece. Without this feature you will not be able record from the speakers.
    Open camstudio go to Options and make sure it's ticked to record audio from speakers.
    let me know if you have the stereo mix ok.
    Look at the master volume open the options tab then put it on recording looks kinda like this, is there a stereo mix?
    Put it back to playback and apply.

    It's your sound card , cam staudio does not support  hardware based SoundMax Digital Audio. and  Realtek HD Audio  if you can't replace the sound card with something like a creative the only work around I know of is to buy a small tool that will create a virtual sound card
    Total Recorder
    and try this freeby

    same problem here
    and here
    and even  have now started posting this problem on youtube

    Sorry matey it's the nature of OEM systems they dont provide the best onboard hardware/software.
