This sounds like a description of the disk drive running in compatibility mode. In other words DMA is disabled and it requires processor interrupts to transfer data to memory.
Consequently disk intensive tasks such as system start up are much slower and time sensitive activities such as sounds can be distorted.
It's usually a driver problem but can be a hardware fault.
