If you click the sound indicator icon on the top right of the screen you'll find the Sound Settings. Once that is open, go to the Input tab. There should be a pull down menu to the right of Connector which should allow you to select your microphone input. Once that is done, click the mute check box found to the right of the Input volume slider (not the Output volume one above it).
