My laptop has 2 3.5 MM jacks, one presumably for headphones out and
the other for mic-in. It's a Lenovo Ideapad Y5070.

Do you know the model of your laptop?
If the laptop has a single 3.5mm socket, then you'll probably need an
adapter such as the startech MUYHSMFF
to be able to plug in an external microphone which has a 3.5mm plug.

I have a stand alone Logiteq mic connected to the 3.5 mic-in jack on
my Lenovo laptop which doesn't appear to be picked up and recognized
by Audacity (my audacity doesn't for some or other reason have the
external mic as a possible input source).
When I go to preferences, and then devices, the only input device
listed is the laptop's internal mic.
What should I do to enable my stand alone Logiteq mic for recording?
Any help would really be appreciated.
