Default Major Problems!

I currently am having major problems with my Compaq Presario 5000 series desktop.

If I try to play a movie or listen to music, it screws up after about 15-20 seconds and basically locks up. The video and/or sound become choppy and load extremely slow. It happens when I try to load games in the same way.

Does anyone know what could be the problem and know a possible solution?

PLEASE help, I'm no genius when it comes to computer problems. Sorry if this is the wrong board, this one fit the most.

One Piece Rules! ARGH!
