Try connecting a set of headphones to the audio plug on the laptop. See if the sounds are still there. This might be a problem with your speakers, either they are faulty or they are picking up interference. M

    Sometimes, too many running applications or a spyware infection could cause high CPU usage and affect the audio.

    If you dont suspect any of the above then I would agree and ring Acer if it is still under warranty.

    Thanks

How do I get to radio tune


Turn XM Roady2 'on' using the POWER switch. Go to MENU and go the FM Frequency. Select your frequency of an empty channel in your area, then turn off the Roady2 using the POWER switch. Do NOT do this by turning the car on and off as it tends not to save any settings when you do that. Always use the POWER button. Also, the website 'Radio-Locator' has a utility that will help you find an EMPTY FM channel in your are for your XM radio to use! Good luck and let me know how it works out for you- okay?

My xm plays extremely loud thru my car stereo.no matter what i set the volume at.it is either off when volume is set to zero or loud at any other setting.changing the output level on the xm receiver does...


Are you playing it directly thru your FM antenna connection, or using the RCA jacks? You have to set the FM modulator level. It is also possible that you have a new FM radio with a type of ALC that will raise the lever regardless, but your regular car radio volume control should work. do not wire this directly to a power amp, as you won't have the control that you need. Good luck, let me know more.

The factory xm volume to low in 2006 corvette


Separate 'plug and play' XM radios, like the one pictured above, have a "MENU" setup, and you can adjust the "Audio Level" in that menu setting. See if you can access an XM menu. You can also ask your question over at XM411.com or XMfan.com; both are 'fan' websites.
Good luck - nice car too!

I have XM radio hooked to cassette player adapter in my car. The new adapter keeps sounding like it is rewinding. XM plays for 30 seconds and then ''rewinds'' again, over and over.


Unfortunately your tape play has the auto reverse feature. It is detecting that the tape is not turning via a reel counter. Sensing no movement ( as you have an audio adaptor inserted rather than a real tape) it is trying to switch to the other side of the tape.
Not very much you can do.
You could purchase an FM modulator and basically re-transmit the Xm over an un-used frequency on the FM band to slve your problem

Crackling Speakers


Hello,

That because maybe due to your itunes player which the installation got error..please try another player other than Itune or play it in windows media player or some other player which you think good player.

Or try reinstall your player or update it.

if this not resolve the issue, then verify the connection of your sound card maybe got grounded to other components making the sound crackle..Or you may try attached a grounding wire from your stuff directed to the ground or attached in any metal that is connected to the ground to eliminate noise.

please tell me what ever result for further analysis

Downloading instructions Delphi SKYFi3 unit


You can't download Xm programming, like you can from itunes, where you get a song in 3 or 4 seconds.  
Do you mean record music? You must record realtime, either while listening or while the unit is idle in its cradle.
It's easy. while listening to the radio in the cradle (press mode repeatedly to get to Live XM mode), then press the center (play/pause) button.  the menu will pop-up, select Record.  It will give you the option for Song, Channel, and Session.  Just chose one of the first two and press the button.  You should see a microphone appear at the top of the screen.  It's recording.  Follow the same steps to stop the recording.  Setting up a recording session is self-explanatory once you get into that screen.
