hi all! i got the xp sp the first day it was officially released i installed it with the backup option but after that the windows sounds were choppy (in that i mean they played paused then played the rest) so today i decided to do a clean install then installed the service pack first and still had the same problems i searched google and the whole of microsofts web site but i cant find any reference to it at all. can you tell me if youve got the same prob and maybe point me into the direction of any patches btw! im running xp pro cheers!!!
