Sample rate error means you've got the wrong # of channels for the recording...
A simple closing and reopening solves tons too. The majority of problems that arise from audacity is when you use up too much temp space. Etc, open up a track and do 4000 edits, after a while things get buggy.

Did ya try just doing a short 10 min run or recording to make sure all is fine and all setting are tuned, before you went off and did the full set? Always do tests before recording. Hence "Mic check..1..2..3". No one starts the show before all settings are checked.

If all else fails, mix the first half o' the set and then stop the recording. SAVE! start anew and finish with the other half and then just splice the 2 files in postediting.
Another tip (if in XP or later) is to open up task manager and go to the processes tab. Right click audacity.exe and set the priority higher.
Also, uninstall??? Since when does it need to install? It just friggin runs from where ever you start it. I literally run mine off my USB drive...and it's an old version where running off a USB isn't even an added capability (not sure why it's added to the new version)

the error message: "Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate"
but the wierd thing is that it ran like 2 days ago. and i dont have a sound car, i just use the line in port on my motherboard. i have NO money at, it took me a year to save up for the setup ive got now so sound cards aren't high up on my list.

from what i've seen the problem is that your onboard soundcard has a different sample rate that what you set in audacity
you need to find what sample rate your card supports
if you look in "Help > Audio Device Info" you will see a list of all detected audio hardware, and the supported sample rates - this should give you a good clue as to what settings to use.

read this too:

the audio interface on your motherboard is also a "sound card".

not all sound cards support recording (or playback for that matter) at all sample rates. some do, other support only the usual suspects (44100, 48000 and their fractions), yet others only support 48000 but not 44100 or vice versa. some may even support 96000 only (?)

an additional knack comes from the fact that some audio drivers support resampling on the fly, i.e. the application can open the driver with an unsupported sample rate without knowing it and the driver will handle the resampling. if the application tries to do the same thing on the same sound card but with a different driver, it may fail and get an error.

the "project sample rate" is determined by a small dropdown menu in the status bar on the left. it's this menu that will determine at which sample rate audacity will try to record, and at which sample rate it will open the sound card at. try selecting a different sample rate there. (the selected sample rate can change on its own, for example when you open an audio file with a strange sample rate - audacity may remember the setting on its next restart.)

if that doesn't work, go into the preferences dialog, under the "devices" option. the first dropdown ("interface - host") determines the driver it will use to talk to the sound card, try selecting another option there. if that also doesn't work, start playing around with the "recording device" further down that dialog. try selecting the card itself, or otherwise the audio mapper, or any other options you see there.

you have a soundcard - the line in, mic in and so on sockets on your computer are proof of that. if it's part of the motherboard it's called "onboard sound" but it's still a soundcard.

edit: be aware though, onboard sound usually only supports limited sample rates - i.e 44,100 and often don't support full duplex recording (being able to monitor (hear) what's being recorded as it records)...

have you checked in the control panel to see that the device is working properly and has up to date drivers?
