Default Computer Sound Effects

Has anyone changed the way your computer sounds. Can someone point me to a site that I can choose sound files to replace the normal computer sounds? Thanks

Google for "wav files" and/or "free wav files". If you have something in mind, search for wav files of it.

I have the very beginning of the Star Trek intro as my Windows start up. Just the background tone with the four tones. Every time I reboot my wife asks if I'm watching Star Trek on my computer...

I have the extra life notification sound from the arcade game "Frogger" as my new mail notification sound.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

I have downloaded several themes off it with no alarms going off. Some aren't complete is the only problem I have found. But you can manually replace whatever icons, sounds, etc. you like.
