Windows 7: Can't turn internal mic off, and keep external mic/plugged in mic on

Can't turn internal mic off, and keep external mic/plugged in mic on

Hello, I recently formated my computer and now I'm having a recording problem. I'm a DJ and use the mic input to record my mixes.

The problem is, that when recording both the "plugged in/external"mic and internal mic input sound. This causes distortion and I only want to use the plugged in mic, not the internal mic

I have tried to work the problem myself but the only way to stop the internal mic working is to mute the mic, but this makes it that my plugged in microphone is no longer working as well.

I'm not sure if it matters but I'm using Windows 7 65 bit ultimate. And I use a Sony Vaio Laptop. The sound card is RealTech High Definition.

Thank you for your help,
Beni

I think you may need to get the Sony manual for your laptop.

It should tell you how to turn just the onboard off.

It appears Windows just recognizes one but two mics are live thus the distortion from both.
My guess is that a third party software controls the internal mic on/off as they usually do with the web camera.
