OK first, I will tell you what I have on my system:

1.2 Ghz AMD, 512 MB RAM, 40 GIG HD, Win98SE, GeForce MX200 Video, SoundBlaster Live Value! Sound.

Ok I just got a cable modem about a week and a half ago and I've been d/ling music alot. The thing is when I play any type of music, the music gets all choppy and it stutters and stuff when I move i.e. the scroll bar in my browser, or opening another program while I am playing the music. It's like my PC is too slow or something but that cannot be. I built this computer. Let me know what I can do guys.

Thanks!

Do you see any conflicts in Device Manager?
Can you list your IRQs?

Easiest way for copying here:
Start>Run, type 'msinfo32', [Enter]
Expand Hardware Resources, then choose IRQs. Copy and paste back here.

Looks like your sound card and ethernet adaptor are both using 5 which would explain why you're having the prob since moving to cable modem. Can you change either of these? Or Remove one and have Windows redetect it?

How would I change them? I've never dealt with IRQ's and setting them up and changing/assigning them.

Rather than trying to manually change it, why don't you just remove SB from Device Manager, reboot and see what happens. Hopefully it'll grab one of your free ones.
Otherwise, you can see if it will let you change it by viewing the Resources tab for that component in Device Manager.

OK, but if I reboot and everything but that does not work, what IRQ should I assign the SB card?

OK the IRQ on Sound Blaster did not change... It is still at IRQ 5. I tried to change it in the device mngr but it said "this resource setting cannot be modified" What do I do now?

And you actually removed them from Device Manager before rebooting? Hmmm...
I'm gonna try and grab someone to help.
