Windows 7: Freeze + buzzing sound during Netflix and games, inconsistant.

Freeze + buzzing sound during Netflix and games, inconsistant.

This occurs sometimes several times a day, sometimes it does not happen for a few days. It first started in August after I did a fresh install of the OS (had bad malware) and updated the drivers using the CD that came with my computer (Alienware X-51). After about 2 months the problem went away but started again in February. The freeze usually happens within 5-10 minutes of starting up my computer.

Sometimes it is a BSOD and it reboots after a few seconds, usually it is just the frozen screen and buzzing noise, and does not respond to any input.

The problem happens 99% of the time during a video (Netflix) or when playing a game. This might not be meaningful, I use this computer mostly for those tasks.

I have my graphics card up to date, and have tried using Control Panel to automatically update the drivers for my various components. AFAIK I have done everything to update my computer's drivers short of using 3rd party software like DriverUpdate but I have heard that those are scams.

I have run memory diagnostic and it came back clean. I have dusted out the internal components. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Unfortunately replacing the antivirus software did not resolve the problem, my computer has again frozen with the buzzing noise.

There are no new BSOD .dmp files in the ZIP file.

Please do the following:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:

Okay, I will enable that now.

Part of the problem is that I usually get freezes instead of BSODs. The freezes almost always cause me to have to do a hard reboot to continue. Can driver verifier still help with my issue? Should I re-post this issue in another section?

- the buzzing leads me to suspect that it may be a sound problem
Q: what soundcard (if any) do you have installed?

- it might be worth removing the sound driver completely,
- then running a cleaner (such as Ccleaner..) to remove any left over "stubs",
- and then downloading the latest sound driver and re-installing it again..
