Can you change Window start up music, how?
Control Panel > Sounds.
Are you trying to add a new theme? There are several to choose from if you are a Vista user. You can also browse to a custom .wav file you select and have it as the sound for the event you want to assign it to.
Personally, I turn off all system sounds :smoker:
Our start up is Kenneth Williams Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me! from Carry on Cleo :laugh:

doesn't know how to change the startup sound?
Maby never had to do it before?....
Yea that was a rude comment.
I'm running XP not Vista
Do you mean the duh-duh-duh or whatever sound when you boot into XP?
The lazy way I always did it was to rename the original .wav file to "Windows XP Startup.wav.bak" and then take whatever replacement file I wanted and converted it to .wav format and then rename it to "Windows XP Startup.wav". You'll find this file in "C:\Windows\Media\" or whatever the relevant Windows install directory is. I used to use the THX sound.
The Logon sound can be changed, too: Windows XP Logon Sound.wav
it is the same way in XP as in Vista under control panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices Properties
Yep that's it graeme86. Thanks everyone who replied
Wow, I replied first and I don't even get a personalized thanks?
hows masturbating going to help?
What has that got to do with being an admin of a forum?
makes me laugh how he states the join date and amount of posts
I know people who can tell you every peace of hardware in there system and will argue with you about the best programs to buy, but yet can not even turn on a pc (these are also the same people who run two or three diff antivirus programs at the same time, have about six anti-spyware programs installed and running at the same time, have three different firewall programs running at the same time, need to reformat once a week and can not for the life of them figure out why there pc takes an hour to boot up (after they spend a half hour looking for the on button) and why it runs so slow with all that ram they have). So, what does her not knowing how to change the start up music have to do the price of tea in china ???
Just because she doesn't know how to do one thing does not mean that she can't do another...
What is most frightening/irritating about this thread is that it contains 16 posts. One of those posts was the original question. Three posts were replies on how to actually change the sound. One post was made by a complete nitwit. The remaining 10 posts are focused on that one annoying fool who made a stupid post or other stuff. Now that is sad.
she is the "Queen of Farts" though, what have you done with your life? Thought so...
Makes me contemplate this plugin
Hah! I pasted his post in here and the result seems apposite... I wonder if they'll make a Vbulletin plug in, that would be something to see EP put on [/edit]
and we have yours commenting on how sad all the other posts were....
