[Perform-talk] Very basic Audacity question

I'm taking a class which requires making a basic audacity recording.
Saturday night I was able to record, but I haven't been able to do so since
then.  I hit r, or go to the "transport" menu and press Enter on Record, and
sing my track, but nothing happens.  When I exit Audacity it offers to save
the file, so it thinks I've done something, but there's nothing in the saved

The Audacity FAQ about recording problems says to go to the toolbars and
make sure the proper input device is selected.  I could not access the
toolbars.  I found "toolbars" in the menus and went there by pressing Enter,
and tried to select the "devices toolbar", but then it just brought me back
to the original Audacity window.

I'm using Windows XP.

Any ideas?
