    Windows 8 start up sound plays at the wrong time.


    Hello everyone,after using Windows 7 Ultimate on my laptop for almost 2 years I decided to upgrade to Windows 8. The first day it was working fine,no problems at all. The other day I disconnected my USB mouse and it would keep on playing the disconnect sound, however, I solved that issue. Recently since yesterday whenever I would start my laptop and login,the windows start up sound won't play. It plays once I connect any one usb device to the laptop, but it will play the default usb connected sound with the latter devices. I ticked the 'play windows sound on start up' at the sound properties. Some help would be really appreciated.

    What sound driver do you have installed? If you just have the Microsoft installed generic HD Audio Codec instead of the correct sound driver from your PC vendor that could be the problem.

    Also, please fill in the "My System Specs" so we know what hardware you have and what we are dealing with.
