Haven't been able to find this answer anywhere else, so I thought I'd ask here.
I'm hoping to sue an external microphone with a g505s, however having tried using two different microphones (both in the 3.5mm port) and 2 different types of recorder, I'm still only getting the default built in microphone, the external ones aren't registering.
Is there a way for me to change this?

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
As the IdeaPad G505s uses a 2-in-1 audio jack (headphone and mic), you will need a headset splitter / adapter for a headset to work.
If you're be using an external monophonic microphone only, you will need an extra 3.5mm Stereo male to 3.5mm Mono female adapter connected to the headset.
Alternatively, you can also use a USB microphone to elimiate getting an headset adapter.
