View Full Version : XP sound jitter

Advance 6T
733MHz CPU
256Mb RAM
3 HD's,10G+10G+10G

I recently did a clean install of XP on one HD. Using the BIOS I can boot either Win95 or XP. Anyway, the problem is with XP. When I play any type of music file, being wav,MP3 or wma the sound will be OK until you scroll up or down in explorer or expand/collapse directory branches then the sound will jitter and slow down as you scroll. The sound in Win 95 is fine.
Any ideas please?

There was a small(big) problem with XP where holding down the mouse key on the scroll bar for a while would use up all your CPU processing power which would start slowing the computer down.

Not sure if that's your problem but they put out a fix for it.

If you haven't done so already get updated drivers for your soundcard and graphics card from their manufacturers if available.
