    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:

    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

    HTH!

    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.

    :rolleyes:
