ward201185 Posted September 23, 2022 Share Posted September 23, 2022 (edited) windows xp x64 and windows server 2003 x86 doesnt seem to have this problem although the polling rate is still an issue there. it seems faster and its unfortunately at the expense of 16 bit support but theres another bummer. i dont have working ethernet drivers for my motherboard on windows xp x64. i always get "this device cannot start" error code 10 although the 32 bit driver works on windows xp 32 bit, the 64 bit doesnt. i have PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A1&CC_0200 if anyone is concerned. UPDATE:i may have found a short term fix for now (not for the polling rate issue). setting sound scheme in windows xp x32 to no sounds seems to fix this problem. setting it back brings it back. windows media player, or the dpc latency might be the problem here. hdd might also be causing problems too but i kind of doubt it, i had xp booted up on external usb hard drive but it was on usb 2.0 (i was not able to get usb 3.0 drivers working for windows xp unfortunately) and i think i had the same symptoms. external hdd has apm set to 80h. internal hdd has apm set to 01h but i have set a script so that it writes to a file every 4 seconds so that it doesnt spin down, load/unload cycles doesnt increase. so apm might not be the problem. internal 5400 rpm hdd has a read/write speed of about 90-110 mb/s while external hdd 5400 rpm has 30 mb/s because of it running under usb. it kind of baffles me why windows xp would ever be running slow if my computer isnt the problem.. also, i forgot to mention that windows xp sp1/windows server 2003 rtm doesnt have the polling rate issue but mouse feels a little delayed. the problem with the sound driver still exists causing the same freezes (referring to windows xp sp1, windows server 2003 doesnt have this issue at all). im starting to think that the sound driver issue may just be a symptom of a much bigger issue. i noticed these issues worsen when i ahve the nvidia driver installed (they become frequent).
