I have just got a new PC running WinXP home. there is no dialling sound when I go on the Internet although the box is ticked. I have sound on everything else. any ideas please.

Try going to Control panel/phone and modem options/properties/modem/ speaker volume.

Hope this helps

Thanks Oriole - I went there and speaker was 'on'.

I'm still in dark on this one.

Have you tried Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, Modem Properties and change setting in there. I have found that you have to change both places for some reason.

Thanks Penny - it was 'on' so it must be something else. I have only been using one of my speakers, I don't think this could have any effect on it but I will connect the other and see.

is this AOL? i think it disables the dialing sound

One last place to look, open Outlook Express, Tools, Accounts, Mail, Properties, Connection, Settings, Modem Configure, tick Modem Speaker.
I only know this because I had to find them all so that I could STOP the sound.

On Win Me
Go to Settings/Dial-up Networking right click your Int connection and chose properties. Click configure modem on general tab and see what your volume is set to.
It might not be exactly the same but it could help.

Penny, Thanks again - been there and it was ticked for speaker - guess I'm stuck with it.

Leejg, thanks but I'm using WinXP.

huggyg71, Thank you but No it isn't AOL.

If I ever find out why and get a dial-up sound I'll let you know on this thread.

Still haven't found out why I don't get any dialup sound through my speakers. I found the same thing on a friends XP PC so maybe it is the same for all Win XP Home edn computers.

Its not fixed but I will tick it.

I've got Win XP Home and when I had a dial up connection I had dial up sound. I don't know how though, it was there right from when I created the account.
