I have been having a problem with my laptop for about 4-5 months now in this situation. When playing youtube videos with IE9, the laptop will randomly freeze up and the sound that comes out of the speakers is all robotic and buzzy, almost sounds satanic! It will last for a couple of minutes and then usually unfreeze and resume, but sometimes it will unfreeze and bluescreen and then go back and says video hardware error. Other times it just stays in this wierd frozen choppy state and I have to hard power off the computer. I've tried everything from updating drivers
, virus scans, disk cleanup, defrags, etc, nothing helps.
The error info I found in the reliability monitor says:
Video hardware error
