    Hello!

    I have a Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop and I want to record some vocals with an external microphone, but I'm unable to disable the internal (integrated) mic. And then those two interfere with each other and make a lot of noise so the recording is not possible. If I turn the mic volume down in windows' volume settings, then both are disabled (muted). There must be a way to disable only the internal one, but I don't know how and the Lenovo forums show no support.

    A friend told me to download SiSoft Sandra and analyze my PC and try to disable the mic with Sandra. What do you think about that program (Sandra), is it any good?

    Thank you!

    Hi Bellzemos,

    You do not need sandra for this.
