My 510 had two jacks, but my 520 only has one. I want to use the microphone on my headset...even if I cannot use the headset speakers at the same time. How do I get my laptop to switch from the built-in microphone to the headset microphone? The built-in picks up too much surrounding noise.

I'm afraid this won't work. Two jacks, which used to be a standard on older PCs, served as output for audio and input for mic, simply put, audio went out, voice went in via your mic. This has been changed now due to recent trends and can be annoying for most of the users.
I solved this issue by buying a USB soundcard with these two inputs and it cost me approximately 10 USD. As the USB soundcards provides additional gain boost as well, I have better sound now than ever. Might be worth a shot.

Maybe this kind of adapter can work it out too.
I hope this helps.

Hm...I could try that. However, if there is no capability for sound in the jack, then won't the only thing is does is keep my extra plug from dangling?
