Check to see if the volume is muted or turned down. I know that makes a difference.

Strange.. Try cranking it on full and restarting, see if that changes it.

EDIT: Check this out, might help the problem StartupSound Preference Pane

I read somewhere that there was a way to shut off/on the startup "dong" completely. Maybe do a search for that on here or Google, I can't remember where I read it.

Only thing I could think of is maybe having 'Alert Volume' turned down in System Preferences"

Did you try Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM?

Since you can't hear the chime and count them, try holding those keys down for a minute, a minute and a half or something, then let it go to a normal startup process. Restart normally again and see if that fixes it.

Your tip solved both, and that's great because not only does my Mac boot up snappily, but I was starting to suspect a hardware problem and was going to have to take it in to the shop for a few days. Now I don't have to.

Thanks!

Should it be like a double restart? Mine doesnt restart at all when I hold the keys, just boots up normal.
