Change STARTUP and SHUTDOWN sounds in XP

Have you ever felt bored with the Start-up and Shutdown jingle (music) of your Windows XP or Vista ? If yes, here is the solution, now you use any of your favorite voice or music or dialogue as your PC’s shutdown and start up.

Choose the sound you want to use for start-up or shut down. You can even use your recorded voice or a small bit from your favorite song etc..

If the file you have chosen is in .Mp3 format convert the file to .WAV format. You can do it by using online mp3 to wav convertors.

Make sure the file size is below 500KB or else your start up will take a bit longer.

Now rename these files as “Windows XP Startup” or “Windows XP Shutdown (or Just copy the actual name and give it to your file)

Now go to “C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA”, here you will find files “Windows XP Startup” and “Windows XP Shutdown”, move them to some other locations, this step is required for,  in case you need to revert back these sounds, else you can ignore this step.

Now the files you have chosen and renamed,
just copy-paste or cut paste them in “C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA”, here you go,
now you can enjoy the new Start-up and shutdown.

Like this you can change your Recycle Bin/ Notifications etc.. sounds also.
