XP sound amnesia
You have entered, the Microsoft Zone... <cue_evil_freaky_music>
My computer seems to randomly decide to 'forget' the sound settings of windows logon/logoff & startup/shutdown. The other parts of the sound scheme stay as I set them (excepting MSN messenger, which never has, and probably never will, remember the sound settings)
Any idea why suddenly the startup, shutdown, logon and logoff sounds would suddenly cease to play even though they are still selected in the control panel?
any idea how I could go about fixing it with any certianty? (I've fixed it a few times through a long process of reset the sounds, reboot and repeat ten or more times until it magically starts working again)
That would be all for now... everything else in my systems seems to be predictable (if not predictably failure-prone) but hey, so long as it continues to boot successfully one in three times, I can always keep trying until I get it right?
