dust causes static to build up in a computer

if its a desktop swap the speakers around if one still does not work its either a faulty speaker or the speaker connection

Hi i have dell1510 and I'm using it about 3years

Latitude E1510? Common problem...broken power jack. Needs to be replaced at a cost of between $70 and $100 typically. $10 for the part if you're good at it. Another solution is to buy a dock for it. About $30 on eBay for a used one. That has a power jack. But make sure your laptop has the slot on the bottom of weren't specific as to the model number. It won't be as portable. The way you can tell if the power jack is actually the problem is that the plug will wiggle around in it. As I said, common problem with those.

The mic and 1/4 inputs are not working properly. everytime i plug in my bass or mic i'm getting static

You have a bad A/D converter. Maybe it can be replaced, but these units are pretty cheap, and may exceed the time to research and repair. Digidesign was bought out by Avid, and they may not support the unit if you're not the original buyer.

I dropped my mbox with a headphone adapter in the headphone input and it pushed it inside. I can now only hear out of the left headphone/speaker, is this fixable?

Hi Hermricks,
I actually did the same thing! I still havent fixed it, infact I havent tried too, but now that I have changed my signal path I need to use the headphone jack on the MBox.
Have you found a fix yet? There seems to be relatively no information online about this or where we could buy another headphone input and replace the broken one. (which is a relatively simple process to do at home).
If you get any further with finding out whats best to do, it would be great if you could email me and let me know.

Regards, Kristopher Fisher

I have a k9n4 sli motherboard with 4 places to put 2 gb strips of memory. i have 2 of them installed and working but cant get the other 2 to work what am i doing wrong?

A number of things could be happening.

Correct memory type?

The mainboard provides four 240-pin 1.8 volt non-ECC DDRII DIMMs.

DDRII modules are not interchangeable with DDR and the DDRII standard is not backwards compatible. You should always install DDRII memory modules in the DDRII DIMMs and DDR memory modules in the DDR DIMMs.
- In dual-channel mode, make sure that you install memory modules of the same type and density in different channel DDR DIMMs.

For more information on compatible components, please visit

Here's a link to a manual for your motherboard:

Static on my mbox system

Well it all depends on what program you are using to record your music you will need to activate the noise reduction filter. or lower the volume on your mic but not on the program. Therefore your mic will not pick up any noise in the background and you will still have the same music quality.
