Windows 7: Delayed sound on startup

Delayed sound on startup

I am experiencing a delay on the windows sound when my computer boots up. The computer starts and the screen appears but the typical windows start-up sound is delayed by about 5 seconds. I know that this can be adjusted. Does anyone have any ideas where it is located please?

Thanks in advance.

Control panel > Administrative Settings > Services
Check Windows Audio should be "Automatic". If its Delayed, there is your problem.

2- You have to put a Desktop Wallpaper. If you have your desktop with a Solid Color background, that's another problem. I don't know what does the wallpapers has to do with "sounds" but that would fix it.
