Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

Magic jack plunging

I am experiencing various problems with the Magicjack & my Dell Inspiron 530...Initially the sound quality was either non-existent or very choppy and I have tried using every usb port on my computer, 4 in back and 2 in front, and the quality has not really improved...The magicjack unit says to plug into computer usb and it says do not plug into hb? That is confusing...My computer now is running erratically, with the magicjack plugged in however it runs fine without the magicjackl plugged in...I run astrology software and google gmail, microsoft excel, etc.., and need to have my computer running at optimal speed...Can you help me?

Mark its likely due to your Internet connection. Go to speedtest.net and run the test. If its 4mb download or below - its not going to work well....period.

SOURCE: internal USB connector

You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.

SOURCE: dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network

Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

SOURCE: OnBoard USB ports (both front and back) will not recognize any devices

When you reloaded the OS did you reload all the drivers? Sometimes if you do not reinstall the Intel driver the USB port will not be recognized. Happened on the last two DELL's I reloaded. Go to DELL's website and download all the drivers for your model.
Dell support website http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/
Look up your model by service tag, it is the alphanumeric code on the barcode label on the back of your DELL and also sometimes found on either the front or top of your DELL (sometimes it is hidden beneath the USB port cover that you flip up.
Try that and see if it fixes it. Also make sure that the connector did not come loose when you opened the case.

I moved. magic jack says no line when hooked back up


  • Is everything turned on?
  • Is the blue light, inside your Magic Jack dongle, on? (Note that the Magic Jack Plus should have a flashing red and green led as well.) If you use the older model you might need to connect it through a powered hub to ensure the device receives enough power to operate properly?
  • If this is a new installation, is your internet service and computer capable of handling the requirements placed upon them by Magic Jack?
  • Do all your connecting cables appear to be firmly attached?
  • Are you watching Netflix, downloading or streaming files at the same time you are attempting to place a call?
  • If you are using the Magic Jack Plus, does the system report Error 3002?
.
Next, you should ask yourself what recent changes you have made to the computer/Magic Jack software? What recent upgrades have you performed to your hardware? Could this have effected the performance of your Magic Jack?
If your difficulties persist, it is time to divide and conquer. Google a 'you tube' link and watch the video. If you cannot connect to the internet, consult your internet provider for assistance. If the video is choppy, the internet connection might be too slow or bogged down. Perhaps your computer is too slow or requires maintenance. If you cannot hear sound, you might be experiencing problems with your soundcard or sound drivers. You should check Control Panel/Sound and ensure that 'USB internet phone by Tigerjet' is installed.
If the video ran correctly, the next step would be to test your handset and phone cord at another location.
If you prove the handset/phone cord to be correct, you have pinpointed your fault to either the Magic Jack or its software. Contact online support for Magic Jack.

Magicjack phone


Have you tried a new telephone cables going to the magic jack? That would be the first place that I would start.

Can you hook up a telephone to the existing line that's plugged into the magic jack then see if the noise occurs. If yes, then replace the cable. If no, replace the magic jack module.

Magic Jack problem still exists: I want to change my phone number.


You should be able to get a MagicJack number with the 925 area code. http://www.magicjack.com/action/areacodes?inpArea=&selCountry=USA&inpCountry=USA&selState=CA lists several Walnut Creek exchanges. These numbers probably weren't available when you initially signed up. Log into your MagicJack account at http://my.magicjack.com/ . Then click on the Phone Numbers tab then choose Add a Number. Select the U.S. Number option and then choose the 925 area code and the city prefix. You will have to pay a new phone number fee but you will be able to link this number to your MagicJack account soon after activation is complete.

I hope this helps.

Magicjack problems


Rich if this is a fairly new number you need to contact Magic Jack. If you had an exisiting number transferred to Magic jack it can take several days. Here is some information from another Majic Jack user who experienced the same problem:

Magic jack contact number


As far as I can tell, Magic Jack doesn't have a public phone number. They have a knowledgebase and "live chat" support during various business hours. That will be your best bet for contacting them and having your issue resolved. Here is the URL:

Magic Jack Sound breaks up and you can not make or receive calls.


Can be several things. All I can suggest is that you have to eliminate as many variables as possible. I had much the same problems and now my install is solid (see my setup below).

1. What type of phone are you using? I first tried a cheap wired set with a 20 foot phone cable. This caused several calling and receiving problems. Get a decent quality phone (wireless or wired) and keep the cable no longer than 6 ft.

2. What else is running on the PC? try killing everything else to see if it is a resource issue. If works, start your other things one at a time to see what the conflict is.

3. Is your internet connection working well? Get into your router if you can and check status. If you have doubts, have your ISP check it out and tell them you are doing VOIP. Web surfing is is far more forgiving the VOIP. You, of course, need a high speed link for any VOIP to work reliably.

4. Check with Magic Jack on the web to see if your unit needs a firmware upgrade. Not sure when you got yours but they have had a few issues so it may be worth a shot.

My set-up so you have a reference:

-Magic Jack at latest revision
-XP home, SP3 with 512mb of ram and running Magicjack + zonealarm firewall. (I bought a used Dell Desktop for $150.00 off eBay and it runs 24x7 for MagicJack)
-Two Vtech wireless phone sets (WalMart) hooked up with a home-made "y" cable that is 5 ft. long. Gives me 4 wireless phones. I do not use the PC with a headset so don't know about this functionality.
-DSL: 608 up speed and 3553 down, link status constant "up" and "0" errors. Also ran at lower DSL speeds without issue but link status (up) and errors (zero) are CRITICAL.
- I forwarded my Magic Jack number to my DSL required land-line. Works great and I can use my existing caller ID, answering machine and call blocking gizmos without a problem.

Hope this at least gives you a reference. I just renewed for five additional years of Magic Jack and it works as well as my land-line ever did
