Specs: Windows 7, 4 GB
I have Acer Aspire Model:5738-6969 with Windows7 SP1 installed. Whenever I start my laptop a tune plays for just 2-3 secs. How can I stop this tune being played? Even muting the speakers hasn't worked. The reason is that I surf Internet in a QUIET area at a public library only. This tune creates distraction for others around me. Please help!

✔ Best Answer
It is probably the Windows Startup sound.

Three ways to get to the place where you change the settings:

Control Panel > Sound > Sounds tab

or

Control Panel > Personalization > Sounds

or

Right-click Sound icon on Taskbar > Sounds

Then uncheck the "Play Windows Startup Sound" checkbox.

Jeff is correct, but what is strange is if you mute the speakers it should disable all sounds in Windows, including the startup sound (providing the speakers are muted when you shut down).

Some laptop model have BIOS with feature to play POST sound. Check your BIOS configuration to disable this feature.
