No sound while dialling

I have a new pc which show on screen that it is dialling and then connects ok but it makes no sound like my other pc makes while doing so.
There is the usual single beep when booting up so the internal speaker is obviously working. Is there anything I should check to get it working.
I`ve checked all volume controls and they are ok.
Its obviously working ok without it but I prefer to have it working . I have Win ME running on both pc`s. Can anyone offer a solution please.Meshuga.

"I have a new pc which show on screen that it is dialling and then connects ok but it makes no sound like my other pc makes while doing so"

If you mean the modem Its on the configuration side of the modem, ensure the tick is next to "enable modem speaker"

Have checked your suggestion but cannot find any
mention of " enable modem speaker" but in modem properties the volume slider is set half way between "of" and "full". Mesuga.

Put it to full then dial in, you should hear something.

In Volume Control, Options, Properties, check Show PC Speaker.

Network connections, right click the relevant connection, right click go to properties, on the general tab click configure and make sure there is a tick in "enable modem speaker"

Still unable to find this elusive "enable PC speaker" box. Will keep trying though. Thanks for all the suggestions. Regards, Meshuga.

Some modems do not support sound

Just a thought - run Ad-aware to make sure a dialer hasn't disabled the sound so you wouldn't hear it.
