  1. Hello terrencedalton;

    You don't actually need to turn off the built in mic.
    Just choose the plug in mic as default in Windows control panel.

    Adding your email and phone # in a public forum is never a good idea.
  2. plug in your mic

    right click "sounds" in the bottom right (the speaker icon)
    Recording Devices>Choose new mic> Set as default :D
