I have some old dos games and I would like to use them on Windows XP.

The only problem is they run slow and with no sound.

How can I fix that, if at all?

Have you tried changing the compatibility settings?

Right click the icon for the game you want to run. > Properties > > Compatibility > Check the Compatibility mode box and from the drop down menu select one of the windows versions.

I have had ver little experience with this. Even though DOs works fine on about anything, some games and applications don't. Your computer may be too fast. The DOS on XP is an emulation and as said before you may want to change the compatibillity more. However its still an emulation. The Last
DOS OS with a GUI on top was windows ME.

you may want to re-partition and install Free-DOS.

Google "VDM Sound"

Great little app that emulates old-school audio.
