I was wanting to change the Windows 7 startup sound, to something different? Is that possible? I heard it could be done through BIOS, but don't see it there. Running Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H MB and Windows 7 home prem.

Thanks

Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Change System Sound (under the Sound options) or Control Panel -> Sound -> "Sounds" tab if you're using classic view.

This works in XP but not in Windows Vista, 7 or 8. M$ wanted one less way for malware to get into a PC.

To change the startup sound in Windows Vista, 7, or 8 go here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/63 ... s-7-a.html and download the StartupSoundChanger executable file.

Ah, I wasn't aware they blocked that one out, since I don't care about sounds xP

Huh, fewer and fewer ways to customize your machine. I had one a long time ago that I made play Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" on start-up.

If people stopped trying to hack our computers, we'd have nice things.
