Update (for anyone else with a similar issue):
I downloaded and installed the most recent Realtek Audio driver, fought with getting it to replace the old driver (didn't really work out), restarted system, have a new icon in my tray that's the new sound manager, but still have the same problems sometimes with web video graphics jumping around and then all of the sound on my laptop being choppy.
Then I put the computer to sleep for a few hours instead of completely shutting it down to work on it later, but when it came back up, bam! everything works perfectly.
So I don't know if the real problem was fixed or not but if uninstall something that used a sound driver and it acts choppy (what happened last time probably, I uninstalled quite a few things), don't restart just put to sleep for a bit and it get itself in order again? That's really weird, Vista. You normally hate sleep mode.
