Sounds Off
A couple of users have asked if there's a way to get rid of the beep that sounds when a message box or alert appears. You can assign whatever sounds you wish to in Windows XP. If you wish, you can also assign no sounds at all to the events. To get there, click Start, Control Panel. When Control Panel opens, double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices icon.

When the dialog box opens, click the Sounds tab, and then click on a Program Event to select it. Look in the Sounds drop down list to change the sound that is currently assigned to the selected event. To assign a new sound (or no sound at all), click the arrow at the right side of the Name list box to expand the list. You can select None if you don't want a sound assigned to the current selection, or you can select a new sound from the list.

If you'd like to assign a sound that doesn't appear in the list, click Browse and search for the sound file you want to use. After you make all your selections, click OK to close the dialog box to record your changes.
