Windows 7: Freezing accompanied by buzzing sound!!!!

16 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Freezing accompanied by buzzing sound!!!!

I was playing a game called Symphony, and my computer froze, accompanied by a buzzing sound coming from the speakers. Here is some useful information though, as to why this might have happened.

1. My hard drive was 15% fragmented, with only 20gb available on the hard drive... Less than ten percent of capacity.

2. My computer does not have the greatest processor in the world, and I think the game might be demanding a bit more than what my computer actually has. I believe I was playing on a high setting.

3. My computer has never had any overheating issue, so i do not think it is/was an overheating issue. I tried to recreate the issue, for about an hour, and it never froze again.

So can any of the three things I listed be the cause of the freeze? Could it just have been a blip, and my computer missed a piece of data while processing, causing it to freeze? What does a freeze, accompanied by a buzzing sound mean?

Thank you for your time.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Help us to help you:
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.


After doing that, then:
run CleanMgr.exe (that's the win 7 disk cleanup program)

After that download and run the cleaner portion of CCleaner.
Link to ccleaner in my sig.

Only after performing all of the above, then:
Run disk management:
This method gives you a display without the unneeded navigation pane.
WIN=key with Microsoft logo on top.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo | X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field.

Make a snapshot:
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save

Post the snapshot:
