    You could always time it right and then simply sing the tune on your own :p

    I always thought the startup chime was programmed into the ROM chip, so a hard-drive crash has nothing to do with this. It makes that noise regardless of what system your Mac is running. I'd take it up with Apple. Maybe something in the ROM is corrupted (and that is completely speculative).

    Whatever you do, you gotta get it back, for your sanity's sake.
