Sound Problems After Installing Service Pack 2 On XP

 

Sound Problems After Installing Service Pack 2 On XPThe sound problem you have experienced is most likely caused by the QoS Packet Scheduler. It is enabled by default on Service Pack 2. QoS Packet Scheduler manages the network bandwidth by prioritising a data packet. This influences the way audio and video packets are sent.

 

To improve the sound quality we recommend to disable or to uninstall the QoS Packet Scheduler as follows:

 

Step 1

.

From the XP "Start menu" select "Connect To" and then "Show all connections". This will display a window showing all your network connections. (If your using the 'classic' set up, the steps are: "Start" select "Settings" then "Network Connections".
