My computer is Advent 3.4GHz, 512MBt ram DVD/CDRW
Please help

Which sockets have you plugged the phono leads into?
What software are you using?

Peverelli has beat me to it. But I would also like to reiterate, What software did you download and where are you plugging your cables?

You might like to try typing "vinyl to CD" into the PC Forum search engine, I have just done that and there are 20 previous answers to this question.

Sorry I forgot to add the software I used
It is called "Audacity",Ive also tried Nero,and MS Media Player

Try recording using Window's Sound Recorder:

Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder

to see if the PC is picking up the audio from your stereo.

Just checking. Is this the cable you are using?

Hi. Just been down this road myself. Take your Analog autio out from your preamp and connect to the Mic [not line] input of your card. Adjust the volume to max with your software [PC] ENSURING YOUR PREAMP O/P IS ON MINIMUM to begin, then set the level with your preamp output providing it is variable. If it is fixed, adjust at the PC end but ENSURE THE LEVEL IS ON MINIMUM before adjusting.
