My parents comuter needs some work. It echos anytime I try to watch a video, actually anytime the speakers are used for anything other than music. Granted they are not the best, but they can't be causing this. And question number two: I prefer to use my laptop over their desktop when I come home (Im use to the keys on it), but anytime I try to plug my laptop to their cable modem (I have cable back in my appartment and we both use IE) it says that a network cable is unplugged and the modem resets itself. Any ideas?
