Drop a score on a Behringer UCA 202/222. They are generic USB so work on anything and the replay quality is far better than most inbuilt laptop sound cards.
Given that these sound cards are less then $25, manufacture don't tend to bother to keep up with the latest driver and support for newer machine, infact when they blatantly publish in there manuals that you will receive a CD with all the drivers on to install on your machine and there simply is no disk supplied. Just don't expect a lot of help and support for an old sound card under $25!
I don't have a W10 machine handy as yet to try mine on but I would be VERY surprised if the UCA did not work on ten now.
I found some folks having RECORDING problems with the wee things in 2018 but replay was fine. I would bet any wrinkles have been ironed out by now.
BTW...not "an old soundcard"! The converters are still very current. Ok, not a brilliant device but you should get a noise floor around -85dBfs and you would be hard put to find programme with that dynamic range! Anyhoos! How long would 25 bucks last down the Mucky Duck?
