I have 32-bit but this should work for you.

Start > Type "Sound" in Search > Pick Sound > go to Sounds > Look for Windows Logon in the Sound menu, and change it to whatever you like.

I tried it. Windows Logon is different from Startup. I'm interested in the startup sound.

How to change Windows 7 startup sound

  • select an audio file of your choice and make sure you convert it to a wave file not just wav

  • rename it 5080 if you are using English version of windows 7 united states language,so your audio file should be 5080.wave .(DON'T MAKE YOUR WAVE FILE MORE THEN 330 KB AS I'M NOT SURE HOW BIG IT CAN BE )

  • copy (imageres.dll ) file you will find this c/windows/system32 and save to desktop also make a copy of it and put it in a safe place just in-case things don't go right for you.
  • download XN resource Editor Open the imageres.dll file in XN resource editor that you have saved to your desktop find the folder that reads wave and expand it below it is a file named 5080 expand that and right click delete resource on the file named English (United States)
  • select resource in XN Resource Editor then select import user resource find your file we made named 5080 and save and then exit now replace the imageres.dll file that you have made into c/windows/system32 and your good to go reboot enjoy. i have tried other ways and they didn't work for me i just played around with things and this is what worked for me
YOU MUST DO THIS IN SAFE MODE OR IF YOU HAVE A DUAL BOOT USING XP IT WILL MAKE THINGS EASY
also make sure you un check the Play Windows start up sound before you try to change it ....
