See - your feedback does work!
Over the last few weeks, it's been flying round the web that we were going to include a default sound that would play when you boot up Windows. Many of you out there wanted at least an ability to turn it off if you wanted to. Well, it's in there. As Nick says over on the Windows Vista Team Blog, "your collective voice truly made a difference in this matter, as we've incorporated a way for users to turn off the start-up sound when it's more appropriate to boot silently - be it when you're mobile, at home or in the office".
Have a glance at the screenshot below - I kid you not! :-)
I cant get the sound to work on my Vista Laptop and I just got a hard drive put in it I dont know what to do Im only 16
Is there an Audio Driver installed? If you go to Start, type Device Manager, click Device Manager when the results appear. Have a look in the list of devices - is there any devices with a small yellow triangle? This would indicate that your Audio device isn't working and doesn't have a driver. Let me know how you get on and we can try and fix it.
