    Hello,
    I have windows 8 Enterprise,I have some questions about the sounds like startup,shutdown etc sounds.. If I remember it correctly there was a sound when I unlock,shutdown etc before,but now I never hear them. There are many .wav files in C:/Windows/media ,I even tried changing them with some custom sounds. Any help will be appreciated ..thanks.

    have you installed your original sound driver for your device on board?

    so, why don't you install the original drivers first and then look after they work?

    *THREAD CLOSED* Seriously? I have a very slow and limited net,so downloading without knowing if it would work can be a waste for me. Just saying.90% chance of getting banned now I guess :/

    You said that after install all is fine now you complain about different stuff. Go to your sound UI and deal with what you can adjust there or not. Most UIs have sound-check for your environment

    edit: No-one gets banned because of a question. take that

    Lol OP its not you and worry if a MOD says something not a simple pic.

    If you search and sorry I forgot where there are some settings in reg that can be turned on that are not for sound. Having sound drivers is not the problem. If I read right.. after I set them.. I had login sounds and all the rest. Maybe try searching for tweaks and the like...

    Many of those "Average Joe's" didn't know that original Drivers are recommended all times because they thinking that the OS internal drivers must be better because they're newer etc.!

    In case of the OP, connected to a very slow system asking a question first may saves him (and others) a lot of time and also wrong doings. Downloading with just a few kbps (not: KBps) is just a pain in the a**!

    OP was not complaining just asking a (for him) serious question!

    We all having our personal alike's, so with sound. If don't know How To...., it's normal to ask what could be done and how. Not everybody has the same extensive knowledge, many have less of it!
