You will find the “Install recorder devices” option; simply click on that and install it, restart your computer, and see if the error is fixed or not.

For Laptops: In some laptops, there are some keys like Fn+F4 or something like that to enable and disable the microphone, so check it on your laptop keyboard and make sure the mic is enabled.

After that, you can go to ShareX and try to record the screen; hopefully, it will record with audio.
