Hello All,

I have a very annoying problem with the sounds on my
windows xp pro pc.

Everytime a receive an email or add/remove my pocket pc
from its dock, the system speaker BEEPS very loud.

I have looked in the 'Sounds and Audio Device' settings
in control panel and all of the events are set to play a
nice .wav. Even when I press the preview button
in 'sounds and audio devices' the correct sound plays.
(I think I may have some corrupt reg keys.)

But still everytime a get a new email BEEEEP! It driving
me crazy, help!

Hi Gary,

Fix the Ding.wav File (Line 6)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

To use the Regedit: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it
and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by
right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.

All the Best,
