[PlanetCCRMA] GUI Issues with Dell Vostro

Sorry for the lack of clarity.

When I play a midi track using fluidsynth to make the sounds, the sound 
is not smooth. To get a smooth sound I need to modify Jack settings to 
the point where the latency is too high.

In short, if I use the unmodified kernel instead of the low-latency 
kernel, by the time I get a smooth sound and low xruns my latency is too 

So I need the low-latency kernel but it freezes on my laptop so my 
immediate problem is to find out how to make the low-latency kernel work 
on a Dell Vostro 1710.

Any help appreciated.
