Hi
Have been having this a lot lately particularly when playing media files of any sort, is there anything I can do to fix this at all? No errors come up just a very loud buzzing and screen freezes briefly thanks

Hello, those issues are usually cause by throttling which in turn is usually cause by overheating.
Please update your system specifications.

System Info - See Your System Specs

  • Download Speccy and post a Screenshot of the summary window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.

Hi thanks for the screenshots.
I don't see any overwhelming temperatures so that is not the issue.
What type of videos are you trying to playback?
1080p HD videos? higher than that?
How are you playing them back?

The motherboard temps higher than the cpu temps seems strange to me.

I could be Speccy giving false readings or poor air circulation.

Is the a Desktop or Laptop? The specs are confusing.

I just took that for the CPU reading, being a BGA, as temperature value for the CPU didn't really change.

Hi guys, thanks for the responses much appreciated

Yoyo> this happens with all media files regardless of resolution in videos, regardless of programs even in YouTube through a browser, it even happens when playing music through WMP. Really strange

Layback>Its a Dell Inspiron N5030 Laptop mate

I let it continue the stress test overnight if this has any relevance at all and the results after approx 9 hours show no obvious signs of any errors its a strange one, is there no software fix for these kind of things?
