Support page for your system, M7480 System.

In my experience...stuttering results where the hard drive needs to be defragged and/or the CPU is being overtaxed and the system has onboard sound.

Last time I experienced such (quite a few years ago), installing a PCI sound card took care of it for me.

In your case...I suggest uninstalling the current audio drivers...and then reinstalling them.

I would also run chkdsk and then run defrag after that.

To run chkdsk /r: Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (exactly as shown) and hit Enter. Type Y in response to new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system...the command will run before booting into XP.

To run defrag: Start/Run...type cmd and hit Enter. On new screen, type defrag C: (exactly as shown) and hit Enter.

What program do you use to play DVDs?
You may have some codecs missing.
See, if VLC PLayer will work: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

I'm afraid, your 4 years old drive may be on its way out.

Optical drives don't use any extra drivers.
As for audio driver, simply go to HP site.
