Computer stutters when watching video or listening to music

My computer stutters like in this video: Computer stuttering while watching videos

My specs are here:
Product Specifications HP Pavilion dv6-2064ca Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

This only happens when watching a video or listening to music, and does not happen when playing games.

I notice specifically a update for the audio codec that machine uses there.
I would apply that before anything else.

I think that somehow made the stuttering worse because I now have stuttering when playing games.

You could always try the ones from the AMD site.

How old is the PC? Has it been doing this since the beginning? Have you added software? What have you added? Are you still using Norton? Make sure you are up-to-date on all drivers.

Had my laptop for 1 and a half years. Started doing this about 2 months ago. Just upgraded my graphics driver, still get the stutter.

Has Defrag been run on the disk? Try that first and see if the stutter goes away or gets "better".

Another thought is to reset your current codecs and settings, installing cccp will do it you just have to click the rereg filters and reset settings at the end of the installl.
CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack

If it is a codec problem hopefully using that reset feature at the end of the pack install process will clean it up.

Edit - another thing to test does it do the same thing using this?
