The little tune when starting up my computer means something or is something special but i cant remember for the life of me what it is.

Can anyone help or put me in the right direction ?

Is this an old computer?

Some fairly old computers used to play a certain song when the CPU's were overheating.

You can get the system sounds by going to run and typing in media

Before loading windows, right? And full music, not just some sequence of beeps?

yes you can find all the hidden files Microsoft has on your computer which includes the start up song but it is like a full minute longer. I know its in your windows folder, but you have to set it to view all hidden files.
