    Hey y'all,

    I just upgraded from Win98SE to WinXP and Windows Media Player 9. Now all of
    my MP3s sound like they were recorded underwater and they are playing slow.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Chris,

    I've done some more troubleshooting and this is what I've found.

    I have upgraded my comp from Win98SE to WindowsXP Pro and OfficeXP pro. It
    all went amazingly smooth except for this a nagging sound issue.

    I think that I have narrowed it down to an IRQ issue. For some reason, my
    AGP video card, network card, ACPI, USB Host, Modem and sound cards are ALL
    on IRQ 9! And there is nothing on IRQ 2, 3, 5, 10 or 11. I tried using the
    BIOS to force two PCI slots (sound and network) to IRQ 10 and 11, but
    Windows still shows everything on IRQ 9. There was a slight improvement in
    the sound, but I have no idea why.

    All drivers were updated to the latest that I could find at the
    manufacturer's websites.

    The motherboard is an ASUS A7M266 with the latest BIOS flash.
    2 ea. WD 40GB 7200rpm hard drives.
    Iomega Zip100 internal.
    LGE CD/RW/DVD combo drive
    Soundcard - SoundBlasterLive Platinum 5.1
    Network card - Aopen card.
    Video card - ATI 9100 128MB.

    Any ideas?
