The only thing that springs to mind is that you might have X niced to
some value like 10 and its stealing too much cpu time. renice can fix

Any other guess is going to need more infomation, such as:

1) what version of debian are you running?
2) what are your system specs?
3) are you runnning a desktop like KDE or GNOME?
4) what kernel are you running?
5) is your system normally heavily loaded?
5) what are you using to play your song or movie?
