Problems with sound breaking

Hello all, I have one question about Windows 7. I`m currently using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, on HP 6830s notebook.
Whenever Im listening music or watching movie (whether Bsplayer, windows media player or any other program) if some process is running behind (example: Listening music on winamp while I surf with firefox) my music sometimes breaks on 1 second. It dont stop, it just breaks. To explain what sound produce then, run bsplayer or winamp, put some audio file, and press C and hold it. Its like you pressing so fast pause so its like slowed music for 1 second.
Sorry for my bad english ;(

It happens when i listen music, play game, or watching movie. Basically, whenever I`m listening music i from time to time get these breaks ;(

I got CPU USAGE gadget, and whenever i get freeze usually CORE 2 is around 85-95% ..

I downloaded that program, do you want me to post a log of it or?

I don't know if you have the latest drivers,. but here;s a link.

Adding more memory would also be a good idea.

I got last drivers for graphic and sounds. Still same thing occurs, but rarely now.

I thought 4gb of RAM is more then enough for windows 7 :eek:

No, i found fix. It seemed after i updated BIOS (downloaded it from HP pages) sound was fixed. Wasn`t thinking it could be problem in BIOS, but it seems it was in Bios. I downloaded: ROM Image for HP Notebook System BIOS (68PZD - ATI Video Controller) Remote ROM Flash - SSM Compliant .

I hope this will help if someone have similar problem. Try updating BIOS :)

btw, very very nice car in your signature. Btw though i downloaded drivers for touchpad, still one thing dont work. Scroll down and up on touchpad :(
