    Ok i found it Windows will only accept 5:00 secs file

    So if you're experiencing the same problem download Audacity and cut short the file into 5:00secs or less.

On startup and closedown the normal sound effects do not now play.can you advise.my computer is windows xp.


Are all the sounds except your LogOn & LogOff sounds ok? If this is the fact, then all you need to do is to change the sound theme. To do this, right click on the volume tray icon on the task bar and select the "sound properties" and select "sounds". Now select "Windows Default" and click on apply and press ok. But if your sound theme is already "Windows Default", then it may be a problem of system file missing.

Hope this helps,
Regards,

Sound does not work


Do you have the icon [Volume] in the "SysTray"?
Are any devices listed Yellow or Red in "Device Manager"?
Search for any WAV-file in the Windows-folder and play it.
Download "GSpot" http://www.headbands.com/gspot/
Run it and load the WAV-file to it.
GSpot (excellent app) will check if the "codecs" are installed (needed for playing media files).

How do I logon as administer


Hi,

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:
Error Message: Unable to Log You on Because of an Account Restriction

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

I think you should have been little more clear about your question.
I think you might be facing the problem with logon and logoff .
If the Icons are not displayed in the start menu. Then follow the steps below.
Right click the start
select properties
in this pop up menu click on Classic start menu.
Then click on customise icon.
in this list check(select) the log off text.
click ok
again click Apply and Ok.
Now you go to start and see there would be a log off icon in start menu.

It sounds like this logon/logoff loop problem is created by malware installed on your system. Please see this link and determine if the symptoms described there match your experience.
