Why not use MessageBeep function :)
The MessageBeep function plays a waveform sound. The waveform sound for each sound type is identified by an entry in the [sounds] section of the registry.

BOOL MessageBeep(

    UINT uType       // sound type  


After queuing the sound, the MessageBeep function returns control to the calling function and plays the sound asynchronously.
If it cannot play the specified alert sound, MessageBeep attempts to play the system default sound. If it cannot play the system default sound, the function produces a standard beep sound through the computer speaker.
The user can disable the warning beep by using the Control Panel Sound application.

these sounds are already defined in mmsystem.pas so to use them just add mmsystem to uses section and use playsound functions:
