If you change the startup sound the file will probably need to be supported
by Windows 7
In the past when I've changed the sound I used what was listed on the computer.
Control Panel - Sound Icon - Sound Tab - Select Windows Startup -
I think it's set on Windows Default now.Try whatever you like.
Down lower select what you want - Click Browse to go to the location were the
sound files are keep.
If the sound you want is not their, maybe try adding a sound to that location.
I guess you will have to add what's supported by Windows 7

1.select an audio file of your choice and make sure you convert it to a wave file not just wav
2.rename it 5080 if you are uesing english version of windows 7 united statse language,so your audio
file should be 5080.wave .(DONT MAKE YOUR WAVE FILE MORE THEN 330 KB AS I'M NOT SURE HOW BIG IT CAN BE)
3.copy (imageres.dll) file you will find this c/windows/system32 and save to desktop allso make a
copy of it and put it in a safe place just incace things dont go right for you.
4.download XN resource Editor Open the imageres.dll file in XN resource editor that you have saved
to your desktop find the folder that reads wave and expand it below it is a file named 5080 expand
that and right click delete resorse on the file named English (United States)
5.select resourse in XN Resourse Editor then select import ueser resourse find your file
we made named 5080 and save and then exit now replace the imageres.dll file that you have made
into c/windows/system32 and your good to go reboot enjoy. i have tryed other ways and they
didnt work for me i just played around with things and this is what worked for me
YOU MUST DO THIS IN SAFE MODE OR IF YOU HAVE A DUAL BOOT UESING XP IT WILL MAKE THINGS EASY
i was able to use a 3.6 MB file but as i said earlyer i dont know how big the audio file can be . and also make sure you uncheck the Play Windows start up sound before you try to change it ....
