I was wanting to change my start up sound for Win XP i did that bit ok. But it seems to cut off my sound around the 15 sec mark. So i cant get it to play the whole thing. Any ideas how i can get it to play all of it .. is there some sort of time limit or something, or file size limit ?

Not sure about that, I turn off all Start-up/Shutdown sounds for Windows.

IMO: You don't need sounds on start-up, especially one that's 15+ seconds, it just takes away performance you need to get your computer going.

If you really want to have music when you turn your PC on, have Winamp load on start-up.

Sorry I couldn't help you...

lol...dunno then...mbe XP has a time guard or something so it won't slow you down if ur PC ain't a beast.

This is complete speculation but I believe XP does have a time limit because while the sound is playing it seems that nothing happens.

Just like back on 98...set a startup sound of like 3 minutes long...and once that sound started playing pretty much nada happened till it was on. I might be completely wrong but i'm givin it a shot heheh

Ha....

I went to Leo Laporte's site : www.leoville.com and downloaded a bunch of different sounds (he has a whole section).

Now all of my error beeps have been replaced with Hal9000 (2001) telling me there is a problem, or "I can't do that".

That erily calm voice is great. I don't know about whole sound schemes though.
