Adjust your startup chime volume
Authored by: Koninda on Dec 18, '12 06:08:43AM

Apparently, this hint works for some people. It also doesn't work for many people, as an Internet search will reveal. I've tried this hint on a 2011 MacBook Pro, a 2008 MacBook Pro, a 2009 iMac, and several other computers. I've tried all the variations that I can think of. I set the internal speakers to no volume, with and without the Mute checkbox checked. I've set the external speakers to no volume (Headphone, in the Sound control panel), again, with and without the Mute checkbox checked. With these settings, I've restarted with the external speakers plugged in and with them unplugged. I've restarted with the Mute button on the keyboard pressed. In every case, the chime sounds at its normal loud volume, from the internal speakers, on every restart.

I don't know why this hint works for some people and not for so many others. If anyone can shed light on the reason for the differences, it would be a very valuable addition to this hint.
