I dunno whats happened but when I start XP my start up wav sounds corrupted. When I play it from
C:\WINDOWS\Media\Windows XP Startup.wav
it sounds ok. All I have on start up is GoBack, NAV, Sygate Firewall and Ad-Watch Monitor.
I have tried everything to find what's causing this but am truly stumped:eek:
Can someone help me please?

I have AMD 1800XP and Igig memory so I shouldn't expect this kind of thing happening:confused:

well once in awhile i get a hicup when i start up too u should try to disable a few things at start up maybe that will fix it but like gonzo said it happens but i always hear mine..

try this. You already know that you cant hear this wav when u start up, try logging off and then back on and see if you hear it. If you do, then it probably is as Gonzo stated (driver kicking in late, which is odd but not unheard of).

yea, the exact same thing happens to me. I am pretty sure its either the driver acting strange or the soundcard has to kick in. i still startup ok and everything, but its just a pain and really annoying.

i have a P4 2.6 proc, 512 DDR 400 RAM, Abit IC7-G mobo, and an Audigy 5.1 soundcard.
