    Make sure your volume is turned up when turning off your Mac. That will set the volume level of the boot sound. I'm assuming here that you have not installed a utility that turns off the boot sound?

    OK, then try resetting the SMC on your Mac. Follow these directions from Apple.

    Me I like the 'all well' chime after having on odd occasions the chimes of death.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
