Go to start>settings>control panel> and double click modems, select your modem and click properties.
Under the modem tab, adjust the modem slider or go to connection tab, click advanced button to bring up extra settings field.
Enter one of the following commands in extra settings,

ATM0= to silence modem completely
ATM1= all noises till a connection
ATM2= noise during use only
ATM3= no dialing sounds, noise while connection is established.
hope these help, good luck

Do you mean when you dial you get screeches, as that is normal. It is you modem talking to your ISP. If you want to turn the sound of you need to do it in the control panel under modem.

that was very helpful advice, i went to internet connections and adjusted the modem slider there seems that doing that in modem properties only was simply not enough, maybe my ISP was overriding the settings, anyway it's once again all quiet on the surfin front :) zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
