My connection keeps getting disconnected and reconnected. The send and online buttons are not lit. The receiver button is blinking.

Sounds like an issue with your connection, could be low SNR (signal to noise ratio). Phone your service provider.

Bios issue

Even if you turn off the on board graphics, the computer usually will output video until after BIOS post. Simply plug the monitor back into the motherboard video card. If that doesnt work you can actually just reset the cmos by opening the case ( make sure its unplugged) and there is a spot on the lower left where a jumper is and you can remove that to clear the CMOS. There are many you tube videos on how to do this. By doing this you will reset the CMOS to factory.

I have a PC running with Vista and one laptot which we use the 160n for. The problem is when online an incoming or outgoing landline call will kick the laptop offline. Is it the setup? Thanks Lou

You need to check the signal to noise ratio.(SNR)
The telephone signal is probably causing this issue
Check with your telephone service provider to change the SNR

Speaker noise

Logitech X-240 seems love to pickup all RF noise.
Any AM [amplitude modulation] over such RF gets into audio as another noise - some might pick up AM radio signal although won't sound clear at all with some amplifiers [I am serious] - which has high gain preamps - less shielding and unmanaged ground wire handling.

Re-engineer with shilded cable - and [I don't know how normal users will do] - make sure the docking part is not the RF picker.
Well, when your CPU is processing millions of transistors are switching, and we call that digital noise, usually systems with high SNR {signal to noise ratio} should be more immune to such.

One more thing, it could be just the audio card [be it plugged in PCI bus or in Motherboard] could be a bad one - which is picking up noise - rearrange all cables inside CPU box - and check.

Isolate the problem - if it is from CPU, and audio-card --> audio line-out amp chip is picking the noise, - unplud the card or swap with another good audio card, possibly different make/model.
If the audio is on motherboard - do disable through BIOS setup.

Gateway Computer 710X Speakers are crackling/popping

It sounds as if the card itself may be physically bad. or you may have a microphone connected/something in your mic jack and you are picking up noise.
