Speakers Buzzing Whilst Playing Music

Okay well, I bought this system yesterday and after fixing it up properly to my computer and getting past a few minor problems it was working great.

However after a while i noticed that my speakers started to buzz whilst playing music, now, I'm not playing my music loud at all it's less than a quarter of the way but the speakers still buzz..

Any ideas?

Those speakers are not magnetically shielded, shielded speakers resist buzzing caused by monitors. Just about any decent computer speakers on the market today are shielded, and will most likely state that on the box. Apart from moving the speakers farther away from the monitor, there is little you can do to avoid this interference.

How do Istall rtl120.bpl as this is mising and I get this notice every time I turn on my computer


I understand the inconvenience. It may happen due to automatic updates. Since, it is happening from yesterday, I would recommend to run a system restore to the previous date. To do so:

1. Click Start Menu> All Programs> System Tools> System restore
2. Select a previous date on which the computer was working

Note: If any change were made to the computer, it will be erased.

Please revert back to me for any clarification.

Thanks and regards,

I have a 91 tercel that will not pass smog, unable to read codes, idles too high that if you put the car in gear before it warms up its jerks hard, appears to idle normally after warmed up, smokes pretty...

The smoking is probably due to worn valve guides.. the oil from the top..the head.. is leaking past the valve stem into the cylinder.. next morning or a few hours later when you start the car.. it burns this oil up..and the problem although still there is much less noticeable.. cause the amount leaking is's being burned as you drive.. otherwise it takes a while for it to accumulate.. It could mean a minor head/top end rebuild to a minor overhaul..

The emissions problem and the idle problem may be linked.

First make sure your throttle cable is clean and working properly. They can get dirty.. sticky..or even a weak spring.. but dirt rust and grime..biggest culprits.

There is an IAC (Idle air control) valve attached to the throttle body.. you may be able to spray carb cleaner into the closed throttle body to clean it.. You may need to replace this part. It can really get clogged with carbon.. and cause this high idle problem.

Next.. replace or remove/clean/reinstall the EGR valve...probably better off just replacing it.

Check all vacuum lines for cracks..replace as needed..vacuum hose is cheap.. and lastly.. do a minor tune up.. plug wires.. plugs (properly gapped of course). air filter and fuel filter..

Your car will probably pass the smog check even with the cold startup burning oil issue.. that's not what's causing it to's the EGR valve and possilbe lack of recent tune up.

You can continue to add oil between changes.. use a heavier weight.. and check often.. Once consumption gets more than a quart or so between can contemplate the real fix... or start pouring anything with the word miracle into it.(grin).

Great little car.. Best of luck!

87 camry. we're replaced the starter, distributor

If you are trying to get the car to start easier you still may be venting through the gas line or gas cap. The new fuel line may solve the problem. What you still can do is replace the gas cap.
Both Autozone and O'reilly will test your car free. The system on an 87 model may not generate a trouble code on your dash for the problem you have. But the test gauge may show it.
If the car has zip the fuel pump may be okay. If the car fast idles briefly when cold, the cold start system is working. If the car does not idle up, the cold start system is not resetting.

2 problems with my coby mp3 player

I have the same problem just bought the thing yesterday and it won't charge I downloaded music yesterday and charged it, now it isn't recognized by the computer.

Went thru the whole troubleshooting chart and nothing happened, I did email techsupport but haven't heard anything. I guess I'll take the thing back and get it replaced.
