    Thank you darkpain for your suggestions.

    I have tried to reinstall and uninstall the drivers but so far to no avail. I am using iTunes or Windows Media Player and these are from Music CDs or like Audio Books directly.

    Also, thanks for being a gentleman and waiting on me to reply.

    Your suggestions above darkpain would be great I'm sure, but I do not have a Multimedia or Sound and Multimedia section to do these steps. I have VISTA and only show the Real audio Icon or the Sound Icon which neither shows a Performance tab :(

    Any other ways to get to that section?
    Thanks again for your continued help. I am sure you have other people to help than my annoyance of stuttering audios LOL

Hello my friend,what program are you using and what type of music?
First uninstall all drivers and install the latest one.Second check your CPU activity when you are playing music(from task manager ctrl+alt+del),if its too high its a problem.If you are using different music from .mp3 like .ogg or something "not common" you must install the latest codecs.I'm waiting for your reply.

    My pleasure Christine:)
    You can try another thing,lower the hardware acceleration of your audio card like that

    1. Click Start, select
      Settings and click Control Panel.

    2. Double-click the Multimedia or Sounds and Multimedia icon.

    3. In the Multimedia Properties window select the Audio tab.

    4. Under the Playback heading, click Advanced Properties.

    5. Click the Performance tab and record the location of the
      Hardware Acceleration slide bar.

    6. Click the Hardware Acceleration slide bar and keep the mouse
      button pressed.

    7. By moving the mouse, slide the indicator needle to None.

    8. Release the mouse button.

    9. Click Apply and click OK.

    10. Close any open windows and launch the program that the sound
      issue occurred in.

    When finished with the program, return to the Advanced
    Properties window (following the steps above) and return the audio
    hardware acceleration to the setting recorded in Step 5. If lowering the
    audio hardware acceleration improved the performance of a program,
    repeat the above procedure before launching and using that program.
    Good luck

    Sorry i didn't knew that you have Vista.You can try this
    Click Start and click Control Panel.

    Then click Sound or Hardware and sound
    Then manage audio devices
    (Or you can simply avoid these steps and right click the volume in tray
    and click playback devices)
    Go to speakers in playback tab that they have a green tick and double click on them or click properties
    Go to the tab advanced and select in the format there 24 bit 96000Hz
    Put a tick on the 2 boxes above
    And click Apply and you are done.
    Play a music now and see what happens.If this still doesnt solve your problem you can do the same procedure and test the values like 24 bit 48000Hz and 24 bit 44100Hz
    Every problem is the same important to me:)

My emachines desktop ET1161-07 is randomly playing a high-low beep

A virus check might not get all malware. Download Malwarebytes free and do a scan with that. Check the add-ons installed in you browsers and get rid of superfluous or strange ones. Use msconfig to check which programs are loaded at start up. Uncheck unnecessary or suspicious ones. Good luck.

My cd player does not play music in order, instead of skips to 5 than 8 etc.

There's a control under PLAY MODE that selects random play labeled "1 DISC SHUF". Normal play would be "ALBM". Read the manual.

Not getting constant play back

This is an excellent system for a bedroom or small office area. The random color changing light feature is very soothing to fall asleep to as well as the random/all disc playback so you don't fall asleep to the same thing every night! The 90 minute max sleep timer is just perfect to give me time to read a little and still be able to fall asleep to music. I also use the random playback feature during the day to play my parrot's training CDs so he doesn't get bored either! This is a great system and I highly recommend it.
