Startup sound on Audigy Player

  IClaudio 11:48 03 Jun 2004

Everytime I fire up the PC, the Creative Audigy card announces itself with a really stupid little theme. I can't find any way to switch it off... am I stuck with it, or can some kind person put me out of my misery?

Hi Beatleman ;-)
START > All Programs > Creative > Soundblaster (Audigy 2) > Creative Splash Screen. In the bottom right corner of your screen you should see a little blue box with a 'play' triangle and a smaller round button. Click on the round button and you can cancel the load on startup here (at least I THINK that's what it does).

Thanks for the response... and that's what I assumed it would be. But... no 'Splashscreen' option in Start/Programs/etc.

I'll try the Creative folder on the C: drive now

I think the file you're looking for is EAX_HD.avi (on my PC it lives in C:\Program Files\Creative\Splash Screen)

Send it to your recycle bin and see if it does the trick. Leave it there for a while and make sure everything works properly befure deleting it permanently.

PS: Befure is Peverelli-ese for before ;-)

Have a search for shake192.mlp , would that be the sound?

In the Splash Screen folder, double click on DEMO32.exe, then double click on ctload.dbd and that'll give you the option to stop it loading at Startup.

It works!

How on earth did you find that? And why is it part of a demo? Thanks m8, for saving my sanity!

Cycoze, I've searched for the mlp file, but no success... academic now though but thanks for your input :)

[It's quite a little non-PC party isn't it ;))
