I have recently started using another desktop computer to run my
station as the old one died. The music coming out the transmitter is
rubbish. Same music as old computer.
When I run the station from a laptop the sound quality is great.
I,m not computer savvy so I,m struggling a bit on this one.
The sound system is 2.0 on the desktop.

It's a big question to answer when there are so many unknowns.
You say the music coming out of the transmitter is 'rubbish' - do you not like the songs, or is the sound quality the problem?
If a laptop produces Ok sound, and the desktop doesn't, my guess (without being able to see or hear the problem) is you have a level mismatch - the level of the sound coming out of the desktop is either way too high, or possibly too low.
Either way you can try to adjust it by going into the computer's speaker control (volume level) and turn it up or down depending on what the existing problem is.

If that doesn't cure it then chances are it's something more complex that needs investigation.

If you are in Auckland I could call by sometime and take a look.
