HP Elitebook 840 G3 has no Stereo Mix

Hello.
I have a HP Elitebook 840 G3 using Windows 7 Professional x64 and I am trying to set up two audio output devices.
The trick is shown here, and I have previously done this successfully on my old laptop that I do no longer have.

But on my HP Elitebook 840 G3 I have no Stereo Mix. It is not in the hidden devices list either.
First I tried updating the audio driver: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=7815295&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4059

But that did not bring forth the Stereo Mix.

So I am stuck. Is there anyone here that knows how to?

have you tried this: Control Panel ―> Sound ―> Recording tab ―> Right-click then check Show Disconnected Devices box

repeat and check Show Disabled Devices box Stereo Mixanother way to check is to use the Device Manager and click on the Audio inputs and outputs option Audio input/output

You can't do this with the Elitebook :(
Stereo Mix isn't available with the Conexant HD Audio chipset that is built into the Elitebook 840.

Paul: Yes, like I wrote: "It is not in the hidden devices list either." Checked Device Manager also, made sure it shows hidden devices as well. Nothing there.

MASQ: Thanks. Guess you must be right. Leaving the question open for a bit just to be sure there is no other person out there that wants to reply with some other info.
