It sounds like you are talking about the Windows Startup sounds, would this be correct and if so. Give the following instrutions a go

Disabling Window XP startup sounds:

  • Click on START, then click on Control Panel
  • Click on Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices
  • Click on Sounds and Audio Devices
  • Click on the Sounds tab
  • Look below for Program Events. Scroll down and look for Start Windows.
  • First, highlight Start Windows. Second, go below to Sounds and select (None).
  • Click Apply and then OK


I tried/tested the Muting option in both of the Speaker Icon options and rebooted/restarted and both times it was not muted.

That the reason for Disabling Window XP startup sounds guide
