Computer announces ''Jack is unplugged'' when the computer is

Idle for a while When I walk away from computer for a while and then come back to start using it again, the Realtek Audio manager shows a " a jack has been unplugged" bubble even though nothing has been touched.
To listen to any music or hear computer sounds for incoming email or anything sound related I have to reboot the system.
I do have my computer on a power savings setting after an hour of inactivity to save energy. Would his be causing it?

    Hi Coss71

    I removed all of the "energy" savings sttings but without success. The "a jack has been unplugged" bublle popped up after the computer sat idle for a while.

    I could not locate the ports settings option you described. Any idea?

    Still open to suggestions.

Yes, that very well can be causing the problem.
There are a number of ports that have individual power settings. If you look at them it will have the option "allow computer to turn this device off to save power"

Saving power is great for a laptop running on batteries, but not really necessary on a desktop PC that is plugged in.
Yes you will save a little power (so it can be a "green" thing to do) but you are not going to make a noticable difference in your power bill.

To test this, turn off all of your power savings settings (such as system standby after so long, hibernate etc) and see what the speakers do.

In all my years of doing computers, I have had more problems with systems "re-awakening" then I save by reducing power comsumption.

    Go into Device manager (right click My Computer, Properties, Computer Hardware, Device Manager).

    In here you can see each device. You may have to expand the device tree to get to the specific part. Once there, right click, or double click the device to get to the details. If a device has a seperate power setting, you will usually see it on the right most tab. It will say power management. In here, you'll see the setting for allowing the computer to manager the power to that device, take the check off, Apply and OK.

    Hope this helps. Let me know what you find. I know chasing power settings can be a real hair puller.

I just had a starter replaced on my 2001 Nissan Maxima and now it makes a noise like an electric motor is still running but when I remove the ENG CONT 2 fuse,it stops,what could this noise possibly be

Unplug the IAC. Does the noise go away? If so you probably have a bad PCM (computer) and IAC. Possibly bad wiring to IAC. IF noise does not go away unplug starter, does noise go away?

I would need some more information to completely help you. When you say you walk away and the pc shuts down and starts back up, does it close down (reboot) or does it go into screen saver / sleep mode? What button did you push for the power button light to blink? Have you put the PC into sleep / hibernation mode by pressing the power button once.

Static on answering tape

I had been battling this one too...your phone may be plugged in too close to a computer where the modem signal can get crossed with your phone line...I read on here that this was a DSL prob but is also appears to be a wireless/cable issue too. If you can move your phone b/c of jack placement/power outlet, unplug the phone at the phone line and power supply, then plug them back in. This worked for me......

5.1 GMX ProMedia Issue

The jacks on the back are probably for an amplifier output and you probably have had the speaker wire stripped too long possibly shorting out the amplifier as this is a common problem, if not stripped too long it may have just failed, also you need to check by unplugging from back of computer and hook up to a walk man or something with a headphone jack, see if still dead, might also be the cable from the computer to the speakers. Good luck. :-)
