I wouldn't directly connect any guitar/amp to the computer or it's speakers, I use a Pod XT and connect it through that (USB or Midi port). That has a pre-amp built in. I can't help but think connecting directly would either sound really bad or blow up the speakers!

You might need to select audio in / out in your DAW, software program. It might not be that easy. Though I think that what you are doing is not the best thing. I tried that in my PC and mac before but I always got noise and hisses so had to get a preamp which works the best. smile.gif You might want to use something like Line 6 that has a USB connection. smile.gif

You will need an audio interface to connect your guitar with the computer . . .
Line6 usb audio interfaces are really user friendly . . .

Mate has a good point here. The built in audio on most laptops is just not up to recording quality as it's an unbalanced 1/8th inch input jack and the noise and interference of the computer itself adds unwanted noise. Try to get an audio interface. Here is a link to the starter line 6 model. It's on sale at Musicians Friend for about $70.

I would definitely recommend getting a external usb audio interface. Pod Studio GX (or UX1/2) work awesome and you can get some really good recordings and guitar tones for home usage.

Regarding your windows 7 laptop, try finding the volume controls in the task bar. See if maybe the mic input is muted (therefor no sound) or if the volume slider is down. Try bringing it up. But overall I don't recommend playing like that on your computer. Its not ideal way to connect equipment and it will sound bad.
