I have the above notebook and when I use receive E-Mail,or Download from the net i often get a ringing sound which starts and the only way to stopit is to mute the sound from the speakers or restart the computer.

The symptom is like a chain reaction that once triggered the audio card cannot be controlled.

I have a colleague who has exactly the same problem with the same notebook with a different fax/modem card.

I have a psion V34 modem/fax card.

Any ideas? Olivetti say they have never heard of this problem.

Hi Mcaplan

Sounds to me you have a IRQ conflict in your system.

I advise you to switch irq's for your soundcard and modem a few times until everything works out.(write down the initial settings !!!)

(btw do you run 95 if so is there a conflict shown in any of the hardware ??

Try disabling the soundcard if possible and if it's internal look in setup for a way to disable it).

another tip, upgrade pcmcia drivers they are also many times to blame for such problems ...

good luck ... eddie

ED I will speak to Olivetti about your suggestion.

However the Sound card is internal and the PCMCIA Modem Card was installed through the Add Hardware procedure.I would have assumed that Windows 95 would automatically allocate an IRQ location   that did not conflict.

There are no conflicts shown in the device manager.

Also I have looked in the Bios Setup and I cannot locate any reference to disabling the soundcard.

I will speak to Olivetti about updating the PCMCIA Drivers
