For amarok, make sure you are using the xine engine. For your computer to run faster, uninstall a package called kat. For the techno music go to kcontrol -> LookNFeel -> System Notifications -> Event Source -> KDE System Notifications -> Select "KDE is starting up" and choose a different sound. Most of your problems have been addressed in other threads, so please search first before starting a new thread.
