    I'm customizing my Acer 1810TZ, and the only thing I'm having trouble with is the windows logon sound. Every other sound customization I have made works perfectly. The Windows logon sound does not play on the initial logon. If I lock the computer and log back in it plays properly, it's just during the initial logon that it doesn't play properly. Any advice?

    Do you mean the start-up sound?
    Unfortunately in vista/Windows 7 you can't change that sound without tweaking the registry, if you're comfortable doing that, I'll provide instructions.

    No, the start-up sound plays when windows loads, and I'm fine with that. Essentially, what I want is:

    - Turn on computer
    - Windows 7 loads
    - I key in my password to access my account
    - my desktop appears and my custom Windows logon sound plays.

    At the moment, it only does this when I come back from "locked" or "logged off" status, not when I initially log in to my account.
