"Pentium 4 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)"

If it's a Pentium 4, it's a single core CPU. Unless you have a motherboard that accepts two separate P4 CPUs? Otherwise, you have a Pentium D dual core. And there were a few different models:

The 7300GT never was much of a gaming card. The audio loop indicates a driver problem.

HI JAM!,Thanks for the comment.
Actually I got this info about the CPU from the "Dxdiag" (Direct X Diagnostic Tool) .
So i don't know what to tell you about the motherboard.
Do you mean that the problem is form the Graphics Card or the Processor ??
And how can I fix this??
And do you know a software or anything that let me know info about my computer's drivers ??
