    Custom Startup Sounds

    Does anyone have any startup sounds they would recommend? I'm pretty tired of hearing piano.wav every time, especially if I start it up on the "Loud" setting. I usually have to put my hand over the speakers so I don't scare someone! I'd prefer a nice soothing sound or something along those lines.

    What do you guys suggest?

    Thanks!

    I just uploaded the startup sound files for Plus! XP. The nature startup is pretty mellow as is the Davinci. I'm trying to resurrect one of my old computers so I can get the startup sounds from Plus! 98. I did a clip of Beethoven's 5th but that isn't mellow.

    I just ripped a sound out of a video game I have, its an old one and has a cool female voice saying 'Welcome to Cyber Net" with laser fire in the background. I am sure I will get tired of it soon enough but it is easy to change to something else.

    I don't see an option to change the startup sound. It isn't under Settings>Sounds. I saw the registry hack to have no startup sound and tried to replace that with my new sound but it changes to notify.mid once I restart. I've changed my .wav to the name of Piano.wav and it still won't play it because notify.mid always takes over after restart. I've read other posts as well. What to do, what to do?

    I am having the same issue. If anyone knows how to change the start sound permanently could you post the directions for those who couldn't figure it out? Thanks!

    I'd like to second the request on how to change the startup sound (short of going into my registry which I don't want to do!)

    can someone please post the steps to change the startup sound from the screaching one that is installed to something a little nicer? I'll find a new sound file, just let me know how to change it! :wink:
