Does it only happen when playing music?

It may be that your system is only able to make 1 sound at a time...I had a problem like that, which the ALSA drivers solved. quickly minimise and maximise a window (with sounds enabled) and see if it plays the sound overlapping, or if it only does it once....a non techie way, hehe

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/ go there

There is links to a few intel chipset drivers, I aint sure which is yours, but you mentioned 810, and that is on the list

I am gonna go back to Redhat 8.0 it looks like, since I cant run anything in super user mode for some reason
