Sound cutting- Do I need a new sound card?

Specs: Windows Vista
For about the last 2 weeks, whenever I play music on my laptop from pandora or spotify the sound cuts and stutters randomly. It usually cuts when I try opening a new tab and the tab is trying to load or if I am clicking on the the other page. But sometimes it cuts when the computer is not being touched and just playing music. It has never done this before and I have had this laptop for 3 years now. I'm just wondering if I have a sound card problem or if anyone knows how I can fix this. It is driving me crazy. I can't stand listening to my music when it will randomly cut in and out and stutter.

When's the last time you did a thorough cleaning, deleted temp files & other accumultated internet garbage, scanned for viruses & malware, managed your startup apps, updated drivers, defragged the HDD, etc?

I scan for viruses daily, but the other things you mentioned, I have no idea how to do so I have no idea when the last time that stuff was done.
