Specs: Windows XP, Intel Centrino/1.00
My Laptop Lenovo thinkpad. In win XP, startup tone was disabled. I tried all those possible changes. But still negative approach. Is there any app to enable or is it possible?

Do you mean the single beep that happens just before you get the Windows XP splash screen. If so then it has nothing at all to do with Windows. It is a function of the BIOS. Normally it cannot be disabled unless the internal speakers are faulty.

Or do you mean the sounds that occurs when you log on, If so then you need to be looking at the sound hardware and drivers.

When you boot into Windows does the sound still work?

vhmdma, Stuart has touched on a couple of possibilities, as you can see we're unsure just what your problem is. One other 'maybe' comes to mind.
Are you talking about a sound AS Windows opens? If so, open your control panel and click the sounds and devices icon. There you'll see a 'sounds' tab. Cursor down thru the list. A sound that's selected will have the speaker icon next to it. If it's blank or you wish to alter it, simply hilite it and click on the sound from the subsequent list you desire. There's a 'preview' box that'll let you hear it for selecting before final selection.

Control Panel - Classic view - Sounds and Audio Devices - Sounds tab.

Make sure Sound Scheme is NOT set to No Sound

Yopu must click on OK at the bottom of the Sounds window if you have made any changes.
