good news. so your hardware is not the problem.
iirc, amarok can use a number of audio backends - my guess is it's using
aRTs (as someone else suggested already). perhaps arts is ok, but messes
up other program's audio performance?
look it up in the amarok prefs, and if arts is running, kill it (you can
 permanently disable it with kcontrolcenter).

also good news, because that one is hard to fix on a laptop...
