Hi, I just purchased an Acer desktop computer, running Windows XP Home. The speakers are Acer. The problem is I can hear a radio station playing constantly all the time through the speakers. How do I get rid of this? Thank you for any help you can give!

Hi sweetgapeach1964, welcome to GeeksToGo!

Is there a phone or radio close to your computer? I have had the same thing happen and it was my cell phone causing the problem.

Hi Emery, thanks for replying. No there is no telephone in this room. No phone jack either, lol. I have cable modem connected for internet. No radio either.

Make sure all the cables connected to your computer are not tangled up too bad.

Do you have a loudspeaker icon in the lower right hand corner of your screen? If you do, set the slider bar about halfway. If you don't have this icon, let me know and I will help you get it there.

I do have the icon. It is actually set lower than halfway. Muting has no effect on the radio interruption coming through the speakers. The only way I can get the broadcast to stop is to turn the power off to the speakers. This happened once before to an acoustic/electric guitar amp - never did figure that one out either. Oh yeah, and the wires are not tangled :-)
