    Mute the Vista Start-Up Sound

    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".

    Great...I actually use that sound when troubleshooting no video issues over the phone. If they turn it off I'm kinda $crewed.

    If they are in a situation where nothing can be seen, but yet when we boot the system can hear the Windows startup sounds, it narrows down the problems. Lets you know that the OS is loading but the problem is either in the video subsystem or the monitor.
