    I can't play sounds in Safe Mode, why? I'm sure you'll be asking me wtf would I want to play music on Safe Mode. Ok, here's the answer, it's because I planned that I will use an automated software that will alert me when the scan (avg, ewido, spybot, adware, etc.) is finish, and I chose the option to play a sound when that finish, that's why.

    Please help

    Safe mode boots with a minimal set of drivers. No audio drivers--no sound.

    You can Interactively Load Device Drivers and Software in msconfig, but once you've loaded unneeded drivers, you aren't really using Safe Mode.
