I have an internal modem. Operating System is Windows ME The noise when dialling would waken the dead! Please some ideas about quietening it. I've already got into Start, control panel, modems, down to speaker volume which I've dragged to the 'off' position but it's still blasting away! Thanks in anticipation friends.
Just solved problem Tazfan. Sound was coming from modem. Looked through search files and a response from Jonah1000 earlier this year gave a solution for XP users but it has worked with my ME system. Start/Control Panel/Modems/Connection/Advanced
Then by typing in M0 (0 being zero) in the Extra Settings box the solution has been found! But now I can hear my wife again so I may switch it back on! Thanks for your response.
If I remember correctly there are two places that you need to turn it off, at least that was the case with Win 98, I'm assuming it's the same for Win ME. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections (might be called something else in ME) and right click on your connection icon, choose Properties and on the General tab, make sure your modem is highlighted and click the "Configure" button and untick the "Enable Modem Speaker" button and click OK to exit.
