Windows Sounds after total reinstall/full format

I know it's not important, but had to do a format and reinstall of windows XP Pro because of driver problems with old/new video card. I have two users set up on the computer, myself and my wife (of course administrator too). I have it set to automatically load to my profile without login/password but no sounds occur for windows starting or shutting down. It does when I choose my wife's settings. When I was reinstalling windows my wife's name was first in the list after the administrator, but I went in and changed that later, could that be the issue? I have us both set as administrator, should I change us to power users? Have just been confused, but that often is a state I'm in with computers. Any assistance is welcomed!
