    Right click the volume icon select open volume controls and see if volume is muted.

    I believe she is refering to listening to the modem dial-up and connect.

    Go to start>settings>control panel>modem>properties>turn the slider on. Only works if you still have dial up and not cable or something.

    Do the volume thing like I mentioned earlier. When open go to options>properties>scrolldown and put a check in everything>Ok>see if any besides mic is muted or turned down. Then go back to the modem and see if it is still on.

    Assuming you do have Sound for all of the other events in Windows, then check here too.

    Each Dialup connectoid keeps it's own modem properties.

    Click on MyComputer>Dial-UpNetworking. Locate the connectoid for the ISP that doesn't have any sound when connecting and Right click on it. Select Properties>Configure and be sure the Modem sound is up there too.

    Let us know what happens.

    Probably got turned off somehow. The sound comes from the modem, not the speakers. To turn it back on try this:

    Go to START/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/click MODEMS/click PROPERTIES/click CONNECTION tab/click ADVANCED button. In the EXTRA SETTINGS box type in the following:

    M0 (that's a zero) will keep the speaker off.
    M1 Speaker on until carrier detected
    M2 Speaker always on
    M3 Speaker on during answering only

    L0 (zero) Lowest speaker volume
    L1, L2, L3 Higher and higher volume

    I use: L0M1
    This keeps speaker on until carrier is detected, then goes off.

    I also use W1 to force the reporting of modem to modem speed, instead of my modem to my computer. &D2 helps the modem to terminate the call at the end of the session. So my modem init string looks like this:

    L0M1W2&D2

    Lower case is OK, AT is not needed in Win 9x or ME. Search for "Modem initialization string" for more info.
