    Hi there.

    So i dropped my DS the other day from about half a meter off the ground onto carpet. Ever since, it makes a higher picthed than normal tone when its powered on.

    You probably set your birthday date on your DS to today, wait a day, it will change back to normal.

    Yeah bro, that's the sound it makes when it's your birthday. Just go into the settings and click the green person icon, and change your birthday to either your real one or just put it to be yesterdays date or something.

    Nice name by the way, [​IMG].

    Whats funny is had I known of the existence of GBATemp when I got my first DS I would have been making this post as well.

    Try going into Pictochat on your birthday [​IMG]

    I can't believe there are still people asking. The DS has been out for years...

    I reacted in a similar way when I first heard it, took me a week or so before a friend of mine told me what it really was [​IMG]
