Laptop freezes for like half a second

So I have this Toshiba Satellite C55-B Laptop which I owned for about 3 years and it runs on Windows 10 (because I updated it). So much for that...

So the problem is that whenever I play music or videos (in any application, online or offline) it freezes for like half a second and it has an interval of 5-7 seconds. It produces like a noisy-fan or robotic sound. Just so that you know and you can imagine what I'm talking about, it sounds like:

normal: "I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast I am alone at midnight"
laggy/stuttering: "I hear the birrrrrrds on the summer breeerrrrrrze, I drive fast I arrrrrrm alone at midnirrrrrrght"

I'm not quite sure this problem happens even when I'm not playing multimedia files but when I do, it usually happens. But there are rare days when the laptop's playing fine. I think it started happening when I changed my Intel Driver's settings because I noticed that whenever I played videos on my laptop the video looks very saturated than what it should look like. Should I revert the settings into its default settings or is this something hardware related? Or even malware related?

(Note: If you have some technical terms in your explanation/answers please explain it to me because I'm not that of a tech expert. Hahaha.)

I would really appreciate your help. Thanks a lot!
