Windows 7: 7 freezes while browsing Internet

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

my system specs:
acer aspire t1800 with 1g of ram. (the 1gig of ram works just fine and I don't think that that's the problem) an anthom 64bit processor, and my drivers are updated.

Im assuming you are running 32bit right? that noise has me worried. one of the only moving parts are HD, and fans. either isnt good.

to find out whats going on can you go into event viewer by typing that in search. go to the windows log, application tab and look for errors (red"X" in left column). see if there are errors relating to IE. find the most frequent error and tell us the event id and source for it

even if he is using x64. THE noise is NOT GOOD, I'm also interested in (CPU FREEZES).
CPU's do not FREEZE they burn up. that means the computer dies. That would be HEAT. The noise can be FANS, and some HDDs. Its not the OS, nor the CPU. in almost 30 yrs working on computers i have never head a CPU squeel.

Windows 7 x64

Damn! Mine keeps freezing too. I'm using Firefox, and have tried IE8 and Chrome just to be sure. The other thing I've noticed is it mainly happens when I'm watching flash clips like youtube and such. Pretty much 80% of the time I get a system freeze. Longest I've waited after a freeze up is around 15 minutes, in the hope it'll come good. I have to use the reset button and reboot every time.
I've tried a bunch of drivers for vid cards. Both official ATi and ASUS, mobo drivers, LAN drivers ...I'm running out of idea's.

Really hoping someone nails this soon.

Thanks for all the help bt the same problems are still happening. The noise is not coming from the computer itself, but from the speakers. it is a loop of the last 0.01 seconds of the sounds playing before it froze. I'm prepared to buy more ram if necessary, but I really want to confirm the cause of the problem first. I am willing to try just about anything to get rid of the problem.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Same thing happened to me. I was in sleep mode and when I came out of sleep mode and started to use Firefox again it was extremely slow. I ended up having to end the process and restart Firefox. After that it worked fine. Google Chrome is the best in my opinion. It always works and is super fast + jump list support!
