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

Thats what I thought too. Volume's like halfway up

Thats weird, would I really have to install something extra to make it do something it should be doing in the first place? Thanks for the link though, its definatly interesting.

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.MacBook Air Unibody Core i5 1.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, iPhone 4S 32 GB White

Only thing I could think of is maybe having 'Alert Volume' turned down in System Preferences"I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

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!iMac, MB, MB Air, nano
