    How do I turn off the speakers?

    Hey,

    Can someone tell me how to turn off the sound that comes through my speakers when my dial up modem starts? I can't remember how I did it before. I went into modem properties and set "Modem Speaker Volume" to "Off". But it still comes through the speakers connected to the sound card.

    Go to Modems -> Properties -> Advanced

    Type "M0" (without the quotes) in the extra initialization commands box. That did it for me!

    Thanks, That worked. Where did you learn that at, and why does it work? I just want to make sure it doesn't have any other "side-effects".

    Look in System Information - > Components -> Modem

    There are also commands there for different volume levels but they didn't work well for me.

    Glad it worked out for you, Jaffa Teal'c. Are you symbiont-free?

    Not so! You should know that there is a drug that allows the symbiont to be removed so Teal'c is now symbiont-free!!
