Default winXP shut down/start up music sucks

I want my computer to shut down and start up silently,
regardless of my volume setting. I just don't need for
winXP to play that announcement music. Where do I disable
that noise?

try go to control panel and mess around there. If you can't, then just delete that sound file from the windows folder

Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

hey msethre,

No problem, Go to control panel, Sounds,Speech, and Audio
Devices, Sounds and Audio Devices, Click Sounds on the top
tab, In the Exit Windows and Start Windows area you need
to select None for the wav sounds.

By the way if you want to convert an mp3 to wav then you
can customize the sound played when any of the items listed
in the area occur. This of course can be a good or bad thing.

Have fun.

Thanks South, that's just the ticket.
Never been to that location of Control Panel before.
I'm pleased.
