I need some help. I've been tearing my hair out for months and nothing has working.
The Problem: Random freezing/hanging of my computer. Screen is frozen in place and a continual audio buzz is heard. Only way to solving is with a hard reset.
Ram: 4GB DDR3
GC: nvidia 450gts
Tried and failed:
New hardware for ALL components except processor. I have already eliminated:
I have a strong suspicion that it is related to the sound drivers
in some way. Some sort of driver
Note: The freezing happened for 6 months constantly, but then suddenly disappeared when I cleaning my graphics drivers with driver sweeper - I had an ATI card at the time. Then, one day, the freezing just started again out the blue. That's when I purchased a new graphics card, but it is still freezing. Done the driver sweeper several times but no luck.
Sorry about the poor formatting of sentences...had to write quick before the big freeze :S
