That is, if you care enough to bother to change it at all.

Mine (http://jupiter.walagata.com/w/zekemeteora/Patton_theme_clip.mp3) is from the theme of the movie Patton. :D It'd kind of long at 19 seconds, but it works. Really gets me in the mood for whatever I have to do.

I turn off my computer probably once a month... or if I leave for more than 2 days... I don't think it's good for it but it saves me 30 secdonds turning it on again. Therefore, I hardly hear that noise, but I believe it's just the standard windows opening sound.

this thread is, of course, assuming we are running windows.... anyway... i currently have the same sound effect as when someone signs into msn messenger.. the "Hello" ripped straight from Worms World Party...

i'd be in the same situation... except this hunk of crap crashes every 30 seconds anyway

Nothing. The chorus of default Windows XP booting up sounds annoyed everyone at school so it was a general concensus to delete it.

I'm with Jet, as I use my laptop everyday in class and that would be crazy annoying.


I knew someone who used to have Homer's "D'Oh" every time his computer shut down...and had it hooked up to a stereo...so the entire room would reverberate with Simpsons glory.

I have the Tardis noise from Doctor Who. Sad huh?

'There'll be no living with her after this' said by one Jack Sparrow. Sorry about how said it seems being on the KKwavefront forum, but I was trying to find one that sort of talked about setting off on something.

When I shut down I have the bit from Pulp Fiction, after Uma gets the adrenaline shot: 'huh- that was fuckin' trippy!'

I've had better ones on my startup, and right now I'm working on getting some .wavs from the Muse DVD ('sit the fuck down!!!!!!!' anybody?)
