what do you mean by make it longer?

How about changing it instead? To another .wav file. Or better still convert an MP3 to WAV and use a song instead? That will give you 3 to 5 minutes for a start up sound.

Open Control Panel, Sounds and Multimedia, you can change the sound to anything you like, or point it at your favorite WAV file for a custom sound.

I have put the open theme to the simpsons there as a wav file and it only plays mabey 5 sec. of it. When you go into the sounds and preview it, it will play the whole thing, but not when the computer boots.
