Sound Recording Mixer will not open in Vista for Line In recording

The Sound Recording Mixer will not open in Vista for Line In recording. I
tried installing the drivers for my Soundblaster but still don't get
anything. Does anyone have any ideas? I tried double clicking the speaker
icon but it doesn't work because it only opens the playing mixer that just
has 2 sliders on it for Main and Apps volume. There is no option anywhere for
switching to the Recording mixer.
Has the Record Mixer been removed because they want the Windows Sound
Recorder to be used exclusively now? The problem is the Sound Recorder
doesn't record MP3's.

Click on the Start Orb and type "services.msc" in the Start/Search box and
hit Enter. Scroll down the list of services to Windows Audio and see if the
service is started and set to Automatic.
