    Open your system.ini file in notepad or (if XP still supports
    it):
    Start / Run / sysedit

    You will see something like:

    [boot]
    shell=Explorer.exe
    drivers=mmsystem.dll power.drv

    .... etc.

    This is where you need to edit the system.ini file.

    It WILL be different for your OS and machine. The pertinent
    bit is the mmsystem.dll, which is all you need to add.
