External Modem No sounds W7 Laptop

  David4637 15:09 11 Feb 2011

I have the above for access to the interent via Dial Up, and it works OK, but it does not produce the dial up sounds when its dialling out, that an internal modem produces in my XP PC. I have looked in the driver properties of the modem, and sounds are ticked?
Any ideas please
Thanks David

2 sites indicate that getting the sound may not be possible click here and click here although the last one is for Vista.

Thanks for your replies, it looks like the external modem I have just bought does not have an internal speaker, and I won't be able to hear it dial out.
Any other ideas?
Thanks David

David - If it doesn't have a built in speaker then I think the only answer would be to change it for one that does.

Thanks all, probably not worth buying one with an internal speaker. David
