I have a MagicJack VOIP device and the sound cuts in and out. I've been online with 4 techs from MagicJack, and they keep acting like my computer is the issue. I have high speed broadband, download speeds 2800kbps upload about 200kbps, AMD Athlon 1.09 GHz, 512 RAM Windows XP home SP2, NVIDIA nForce audio.
I just bought a new computer, a mac, and bought the magic jack hoping to have a reliable home phone family and friends could call me on. But ever since I hooked it up(which was easy to do) my calls cut in and out every call I made-over and over again. Every call. Not just here and there. Anyways, I was reading other people's complaints and it seems that a lot of other people are experiencing this as well.
I have Verizon DSL at the midgrade speed-something like 3.0 mps. Fast enough for MagicJack. What I was doing was running the supplied router that came with the Verizon package which included a built-in wireless router to run my computer with without the cables(of course). So I did a lot of research, didn't even call customer support, and someone out there gave me the solution I needed without calling.
That person suggested that I not use the wireless and hardwire it instead using an ethernet cable. Granted, this does have its drawbacks, but ever since I did that every call has been perfect. So, some of you may be able to get away with cheap home phone service with reliability just by using the ethernet cable instead of the wireless router. Heck, if its close enough, keep a spare ethernet cable close by, unplugged from your computer(still using the wireless) and when a call does come, quickly hook in the ethernet cable for a near perfect call with no cutting in and out problems. This is a solution that worked for me and maybe for some of you out there too. Good luck.
After you have connected the dongel for the first time, registered the device, and have the 'softphone' on the screen, you should probably run TCP Optimizer to “tune” your computer to work with it in an efficient manner; it can be downloaded from the following website:
You can use the TCP Optimizer by following these short instructions:
Choose your maximum Connection Speed from the slider bar (the maximum available bandwidth, in kilobits per second)
Choose your Network Interface, or check to Modify All Network Adapters
Pick "Optimal settings" from the radio-buttons near the bottom of the program
Click on the "Apply changes" button and reboot

The issue is the processes which are running on your computer at the same time as the MJ. when running the MJ, the computer will allicate memory to it. However if you need to open a word doc or use another application the MJ will fail. try closing programs on your task bar which you are not using. This has worked many many times

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.
I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.
Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones
It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service
Is the daily bible guide installed in your phone and what type of phone do you use? If it is an android device, go to "Task manager" and select "uninstall" or else you tell me the kind of device you are using. I hope this helps;-) Cheers
If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
A) if devices are USB :
- defective USB port : chose another USB port;
- USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
- motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
B) if devices are PS/2 :
- damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
- motherboard defective : replace it.
