Windows start and shutdown wavs not played
Hi.
I'm using XP sp3 with onboard Sigma Tel Audio. High Definition Audio Codec driver ver 5.10.5067.0
Sigma Tel audio loads at system start. All sounds are perfect after boot.
The problem is I don't get the Windows Start or Windows Exit sounds.
The sounds are enabled in Control Panel Sounds, and when I sample them, they're fine. They just don't play when starting or shutting down Windows.
Help will be most appreciated.
Thanks,
bill48nj2

The drivers won't help, it already plays sounds ;)

Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Sounds -> Then use the drop down arrow to select "Windows Default" -> Apply -> OK

I forgot that I had turned off system Beep... duh
Hopefully this will help others.
Open regedit and go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
on the right side double click Beep and change the Value data: from no to yes
do the same with ExtendedSounds
Click OK & reboot.

Thanks for your help.
