    Cannot change Windows startup sound to custom sound


    I wanted to change my laptop's startup sound to a custom sound and saw a guide on the web, and so I went by:
    Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > 'Sounds' tab
    But then I cannot find the 'startup' option in the list of 'program events'. I checked thoroughly but I still could not find it. Can anyone offer a solution to this problem? Answer back as soon as possible, and thank you.

Well gang, I have questions. With Windows 8, it is basically the end of the startup sound. Technically, it can be enabled, but there isn't a new one. It is also the end of the shutdown sound, as well as sign in/out sounds. That kind of sucks. I like the new sound scheme, but I'd like to...
