Windows 7: Startup Sound?

Startup Sound?

Is there a way to change the startup sound in Win 7 64-bit? Nothing I've tried so far works.

I don't think that you can change it, but you can turn it off with the checkbox at the bottom of the sounds tab. I don't know whether you could go beyond that without some kind of reg change or ?.

There are a few suggestions on how to change it, but Windows won't let me replace the system file. Not even in Safe Mode.

Try this:
Sounds - Change

If it will not help, post back.
We will try Taking ownership of the file (but It's not much recommended, so try normal way first)

If you take ownership of the C:\Windows\Media folder you should be able to place a new startup wav file in there if you give it the same name as the original... I didn't actually realise you couldn't change it in the sound options interface (mine is turned off as it annoys the bejeezus out of me anyway!)

How To Enable/Disable Windows 7 System Protection

Whether it is a good idea in this case, I can't say.

I never use sounds, I don't need a beep to tell me what my eyes can see.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I would assume that the reason that the file can't be deleted is because it is protected, thus my link. If it is not, then little is lost...except the time spent responding to your post.
