Xp home help with sound drivers and application

Postby deadman1961 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:55 pm

For Many years I have used Xp Home or Professional to Run a Program called PDW (, This program decodes pager messages for our local emergency services. running from a UBC9000xlt with a discriminator output, to the Sound card the program has a Signal meter to indicate the signal received

In the program you can choose different settings to suit your needs etc. Recently I had to re-Install windows XP, after I had I had installed the standard drivers from the individual websites for the computer I use two programs (Iobits Driver Booster 4 Free and Slimdrivers to upgrade the drivers therefore the computer has the latest realtek sound drivers

Before I had the meltdown Xp operating system with the PDW program worked fine and was receiving at 100%, but now its only receiving at 25 - 30% .
is there anything other than the manual sound controls that can be tweaked to get the program or the system to make the PDW program receive better.
Ive tried rollback, I cannot use any other Operating systems as the Program doesnt appear to be compatible or gives off worse results {have tried Win 7 and Win 8 }
