Quad core processor windows xp performance issue sound

Hello,
Just got a new PC...using quad core on XP (enterprise will not upgrade to Windows 7), and notice a performance issue frequently (with music on, it is particularly evident as it becomes a staccato sound). My older PC booted slowly but never had this issue once it was up.

  1. congratulations on your new PC. did it not come with Windows 7? Its strange that a new pc would come with an 11 year old operating system.
  2. I know...stinks that my company has not yet certified their software to run on Windows 7. Anyways...I have to apologize. I checked the event log (should've checked that FIRST), and noticed frequent disk errors. So, until I get a new disk, I cannot blame anything else.

    :)

    Cheers!
