Lost dialing sounds/connection icon

  mickmoran61 23:24 09 Mar 2004

I recently had a serious computer crash (viral?)
I had to reinstall Win XP. I still have my data but I feel like I have a "new" computer. I've had to reinstall all of my programmes. My Profiles are gone and there are other changes.

Can anyone help me recover 2 items?

1. The dialing sound when my modem is dialing up an ISP.
2. The connection icon on the taskbar (like 2 small connected computers) which shows that I'm connected and allows me to disconnect without having to restart my PC.

I have a PC with a 1.53ghz AMD Athlon chip and 256Mb RAM

Thanks in advance

Thanks WallBash,

Connection icon OK.

Still need help with dialling sounds (all other sounds OK!)

Have you tried Control Panel, Modem, Properties and then Mode Speaker on/off?

Yes I have Speaker Volume in modem properties ON (the slide is all the way to the right!)


What bothers me is that all this worked before the "crash"!

Network connections/right click your connection/properties/under the connect using box click on configure and make sure there is a tick in enable modem speaker

Dear christmascracker

I checked the properties of both my ISPs. Both have "Enable modem speaker" checked "on".

Sorry for delay in response,

I still have no modem sounds
