Startup/shutdown sounds

Recommended Posts

Has anyone explored the option of changing the annoying startup/shutdown clunk when doing a soft reset on the phone? I think there might be a switch in the registry that I saw on the MSDN site. Anybody tried it or know where the sound file is stored?

Yes, you should be able to stop these sounds from the registry.

Goto HKEY_C_UControlPanelSounds

I think it will be keys SystemStart and shutdown (or something similar)

Enter the above sound keys and click Value, Menu, New value, String. Use Name=Script and Data=(leave blank).

Note the capital S in Script.

The sound should now use your script instead of the one found in the associated sound catagory and because there is no p in the the script data the sound won't play :lol:

Could you explain to a newbie what "Goto HKEY_C_UControlPanelSounds" means in simpler terms for me. Is that from the phone menu or using activesync?

Hi

You need to download RegEdit (from www.monolithix.org) to the SPV which is a program that lets you change parameters in the registry.
