SUPER annoying audio loop

Windows 10

Asked by: AlexDragu

When I start Windows 10, (An old Pentium 3 Windows 2000 desktop, and yes it met the requirements.), I get a REALLY annoying audio loop of the Windows 2000 startup and when the startup sound finishes, it does the shutdown sound, and then the startup sound, and so on. Muting the volume does nothing, and plugging in headphones doesn't work either, it just comes through the speakers. GGRR.......
