Have substituted a "WELCOME TO MY CASTLE" wav sound as the Windows Log-On sound. On log-on this sound is cut short to not much more than "WELCOME" and you will not hear the rest. The same holds true of some others seeming to be cut short. See no indication of a problem in device manager and I know this stuff worked previously. If I am not mistaken, the same holds true in my Windows XP OS (this is a dual-boot system). However, since an issue with the HD resulting in the re-installation of both of these OSs there has been this problem. I know I am missing something somewhere - but where?? THANXs!!!
