systems gone slow, playing media files slowly

my system is playing the media files very slowly and the speakers give some distortion sound., it begins like that and it copes up after some time and runs normally., but when i try to open a different application while listening to music., the music begins slow down., and speakers once again make funny sounds., the system seems not handling both the applications at a time.,the problem started when i tried to copy music files from cd to hard disc and later on updating the internet explorer to its latest version. I removed update from the system but the problem still persists., my system is sony vaio laptop 512 mb ram., centrino with 80 gb hard disc., can anyone suggest a solution to my problem
