1. first, you can try reinstalling the modem.
2. check and make sure that the slides stay at teh lowest  possible end
3. try turning off the speakers. that's what i do
4. MAYBE...you need to get a new driver???????????

what kind of modem do you have?

i would suggest going to the website of the modem maker. then findng an initialisation string that would turn the sound off. this is possible in most every modem and would be the most efficient i tihnk

Tried the reinstall, didn't work. Its not the sound card speakers it is the PC speaker.

I would like to award the points to Bushhead the points as he clued me in to where the problem might be. It seems my ISP had me put a string in the advanced section of the Modem properties in control panel. I didn't know what the string had the modem do but it was to get it to function on a 56k flex till they changed to V90. They changed but I never removed the special code. When I did, just now, the sound no longer plays. I can again shut it off with the slider...!

However, I dont have the option here to award points to anyone, so I don't know what to do to get bushhead the points?!?!?!?!

well, i just have to post another answer, (like this) which pretends to be an answer, then you can award me the points. :) it's a nicer way to post comments than to post answers all the time, then when a comment you feel is suitable, just ask that person to repost it as an answer and award him/her the marks :)

If no ones told you how to eliminate the Modem "Sound"....Try this: Start/Settings/Control Panel/Modems/Properties/Connection/Advanced/Extra Settings/Type in   "M0"..... without the quotes (0 is Zero)
This works on most Modems :)
