Modem sound continues during entire connection

 12:57 am on Jan 28, 2005 (gmt 0)


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.

Hi Andrea,

Sounds like it's either in a loop of some kind, or it's dialing some awfully long phone numbers.

Might not hurt to check with your phone company to see if there is anything going on with autodialers.

Andrea, have you continued to have modem troubles?

Thank you for replying. Yes, the connection sound is still continuing for as long as I'm online.

Can let us know what model of modem you have and what operating system you use? It may simply need to have the driver re-installed or updated. It's as good a place to start as any.

Back in Windows 98 days i think there was a way of turning the modem sounds off - i think it was in the Control Panel.

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.

Good luck.

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.
