Default Re: background switcher and start up sound

For the sounds, click Control Panel > Sounds and audio devices > Sounds tab. Scroll down to the sound you want to change, click Browse, and find the sound you want.

I know there are several programs to change wallpaper... but I don't have the time to look for them right now. Have you tried Google?

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
