Windows 7: Random Computer Freeze w/Noise Loop

Random Computer Freeze w/Noise Loop

Hi I managed to record with my phone the noise, and freeze; Random Computer Freeze with Random Noise Loop - YouTube which is here. (Near the end I turn up and down the volume with my speaker)

I don't know a great deal about computers on a technical level to please be gentle. Here are some details of what happens, my computer normally freezes/resets or crashes after 5 minutes after login, like clock work. Then it goes into windows recovery, which I boot up normally into Windows 7, then it sometimes will just freeze with the looped noise. Or sometimes it'll BSOD. But after that the computer is fine and runs like a dream, it's just the initial hump of turning on and warming up!? My system specs are here '' because i've had the same problem before, as you can see by my posts. All my drivers are up to date, however my Nvidia won't update it says 'Unable to connect to NVIDIA. Try again later.' I'm on version 2.85.62 won GTX 460.

I hope that is enough to diagnose something, if not I can give you more information if you tell me how/where to get it...! There are no minidump files either!

Thanks for any help

could you toss us the info outlined here

having the logs and memory dumps will tell us far more than you ever could.
Sounds like a typical media based crash, it could be the audio driver, but I kind of doubt it. Can be more specific with the logs and dumps.

Hey, I decided to vacuum the inside of my PC and it seems fine now, why would that be? What's the reason it would stop freezing once I removed the dust? (Dumb question probably!)
