Windows 7: Sounds cut short

31 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7/Windows XP
Sounds cut short

Since a recent re-install of both Win XP & Win 7 on my dual-boot system I have been having issues with sounds. I have substituted a "WELCOME TO MY CASTLE" wav for the Windows Log-On sound. However, all I hear is "WELCOME" and not much more than that. I think I recall a similar incident several years ago but do not recall what the remedy was. I see no obvious issues in device manager and I have installed the Creative software. I must be missing something but do not know what. It will likely jump out at me and smack me in the face!!! Would appreciate your input. THANX!!!!

I've seen reports of similar problems in the past, but I don't recall what the fix is. It's not a problem with your PC sound system or drivers. You probably should repost this on a more applicable forum section, possibly "Installation and Setup" and see if someone with more software experience can help you.
