Fix potential audio problems

5 posts in this topic

To those of us who have horrible audio problems under 2008 Server by default (crackling, skipping, hissing, etc) and it worked fine in Vista, consider making the following registry change:

Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\multimedia\SystemProfile

Value: SystemResponsiveness

Type: REG_DWORD

Radix: Decimal

Data: 20

This makes Server 2008 behave more like Vista SP1 when scheduling CPU for audio/multimedia threads.

do I need to use a qword if I'm running 64 bit? (dword is 32, qword is 64)

Nope, it is a REG_DWORD value.

It's already present, so this is an edit, not a creation.

It is a good tweak, and does indeed work. After restarting, I no longer had a tiny pause/pop when ALT+TAB between programs while playing WMA music. Cheers!
