Windows 7: New W7 start-up sound ending at desktop.

29 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit.
New W7 start-up sound ending at desktop.

I just finished going through the whole process of replacing the windows start-up sound (with the imageres file and all that) on my new dv6 laptop. I thought it would be cool to have the Halo 2 song: "In Amber Clad" play everytime i startup my computer again.

Everything went fine, and it installed itself properly and everything, and when I got to the place where it was supposed to start as windows loaded: IT DID START!!! I was really excited that it had worked, so I was listening to the song, and the login screen came up, and so I put in my info, and it went to 'welcome', and the song kept playing.

But as soon as the desktop came up, the music instantly switched off.

So, I'm wondering if there is a way to change a setting or something, so that it continues to play the song untill it ends, even after I get to my desktop. Anyone ever had this before? I know it's not a big deal, but it would be cool to have...
