So I've recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 1721, took out vista after using it for about a week and put xp back in (my computer runs AMAZING with XP) It's a 2.2GHz Dual-Core Processor with 2GB's of ram.
  to my problem, anytime i play a mp3 or cd on my computer my computer freezes right up and I can't take control of my computer until the playlist is done or I restart my computer.However I can watch as many movies as I want and have NO problems what so-ever. Mp3 or CD's  for whatever reasons lock my computer right up, i've tried a million different way to fix this problem, switching drivers, adjusting sound card setting, using a different media player(s)(I currently use VLC media player religiously) I have NO CLUE. anyone out there got any advice for me Huh? It's driving me mental  AngryPC Smash

It sounds like your computer is not reading the codecs properly, so maybe you need to install a different codec pack.

Try going to Free-Codecs and try some of their options for audio codecs.
