Whenever I start my system, the sound being played is chopped to pieces by some other unknown service or application.
I would like to know how I can troubleshoot/fix this.
My system appears to be working in all other aspects though.
1GB memory, Pentium 4, 1.8GHz, plenty of free disk space.
Appreciate any useful feedback.
Thank you.

Whenever I start my system, the sound being played is chopped to pieces by some other unknown service or application.

Is this a booting sound, system sound or when windows is fully loaded?

It is the sound Windows XP plays on start-up, immediately after logging in. You could call it its "theme" sound.

Problem solved.
Found Acronis TIH scheduler and non-stop backup were stepping on the normal startup process. Disabling both solved the problem.
