Ever since i start using winodws XP, my system is running slow. When i play movies, its dragging. Video & Audio timing is messed up. I never had this problem with XP until i installed SP1. cuz i didn't archive the files i can't uninstall them now. Which is the best option, downgrading from windows XP to windows 2000 or reinstalling XP?
Pentium II 450Mhz
256 SD RAM
16MB Voodoo3 graphics card
Is 2000 more reliable than XP? And how will i go about downgrading from XP to 2000?
Its a known issue with the XP service pack. We have seen many customers come in complaining that their XP systems start to slow to a halt after the SP install. They had a segment on TechTV about it, and it has been posted on various tech websites that this happens on some configuations. May want to search for it.
I myself have had no problem and found XP to run a bit better after the SP, so it all depends.
I have had several problems with the SP1 for XP. Have you disabled system restore? If not, that may sucessfully revert your system settings back to before the SP1 installation. I ended up doing a reinstall of XP.
Originally posted by JeremyV well for one, winamp 3 is the worst piece of software I have ever seen. I used to be a huge winamp fan, but their v3 crap can kiss my rear end. For once WMP plays movies better than something.
Winamp3 sucks. I tried the beta, and then a few minutes later I uninstalled it and went back to 2.8.
Last week I tried 3 again for a day. The next day I went back to 2 again.
I still use WMP 8 for movies - no complaints with that.
