I am having some problems. I think it could be the modem, although I'm not sure. You know the noise it makes when you dial up, well the noise has started to continue for as long as I'm online. What do you think it could be?
I hope I'll be able to get online to read your answers.
i think there was a way of turning the modem sounds off
There was, and on my computer there still is. To get to it you need to get to the device via control panel and then click propoerties. Check through the different options / tabs your're given. You may have the feature too. Try turning the volume all the way off.
If that doesn't work, you may want to reinstall the drivers (as suggested above) Since it just started happening out of the blue, chances are something had a little hiccup. You could even go to the device manager, remove the device, restart and let windows re-detect and re-install. That might be enough to fix. Otherwise, grab your disk and re-install.
Click the start button then goto Control Panel, goto Phone and Modem options, and click Pulse Dialing. If you are on windows 98 then goto the different tabs until you see the word pulse dialing. Hope that helps you out.
