Good Day,

I'm hoping someone can tell me how to disable the music/whatever windowsXP makes when it loads or closes. My one computer has never "played" it, an I'd like to say the same for my new laptop.

So, if it's possible would someone let me know! It's really is like nails-on-a-chalkboard too me.

I'd be ever-so grateful.

Find Sounds and Audio Devices in Control Panel, then click the Sounds tab. At the bottom of the window under Program Events highlight "Start Windows" then in the dropdown menu choose [None], then click Apply. Repeat for "Exit Windows", "Windows Logoff", and "Windows Logon". Better yet, turn them all off. :D

The best way is :
Run regedit.exe
Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
Change Beep to "No".

NEVER mess in regedit unless you fully back up the registry and know what you are doing. Since we don't know the experience of the original poster, shebe, this may NOT be the "best way" to solve the problem.

Welcome to the forums, jaleo, but be careful of the advise you give.

Here's a big "hug" for the assist. I really appreciate it. BTW - If you really do want to turn off all the sounds, which is _great_ for me. All you have to do is click on "sound scheme" and choose "No Sounds."

I thank you and so do my hair follicles!!!!
