    im sure theres a way (although I dont know it)....back in the day you just created a batch file to boot up on ... Im guessing that you could do the same in the startup folder but dont know if you could control when it played in the sequence of things....but i think itd be cool to play a little 10 sec logo splash video or something at startup....

    I thought it could be done through Task Scheduler, but I could only get the audio to play. As an aside, to use the Task Scheduler you have to have a password for your sign-in. I don't use one.
