My laptop is an Alienware m5500 with Windows Vista 32 Bit and it has a built-in mic. The issue with this is that I have an external mic that I need to use.
Whenever I try to use Skype or Ventrilo it just picks up the sound from the Internal microphone not the one I have plugged into the jack.
It does not do this however with a USB microphone because this creates a separate sound channel (I think that's what it's called). I'm looking for a way to separate the two microphone channels to external and internal or completely disable the internal.
