From what I can tell, to change the boot logo it can either be done from the BIOS, or some software that came with your G74...though I am not entirely sure...as for your boot sound, I take it you mean the "bing" like sound that plays when you log into Windows? that can be easily changed from the "Sound" section in Control Panel, you just need a .wav sound file that you wish to use, before changing it :)

Years ago, I used to have a soundfile on windows 98 load that played Homer Simpson screaming "Ahh!! Boogeyman!!!" and another sound for shut down from a game that said something along the lines of "When my work is finished, i'm coming back for you" in a rather evil sounding voice....freaked my sister out when she heard them for the first time lol :p :cool:

Best start up sound I ever had was something I pilfered from the game: Hexen.
When windows loaded this demony voice would say: "GREETINGS MORTAL".
;)
Sorry. Don't mean to side track. lol

Fancy Start is not compatible with the G74.

Right on. When a friend my age with a gaming laptop also told me "Duuuude! You have to get Skyrim. It's like Hexen on steroids". I ran out and bought it. lol

And he was right.

Is there some alternative that provides the same functionality?
