Windows 7: Random freezes/audio loops Win7 x64

Random freezes/audio loops Win7 x64

I keep getting random freezes in game, and my audio starts looping.

I have run the memory though days of testing with Memtest 86+ and MemScope with not a single error.

I have monitored the temperature and voltages on both the motherboard and video cards.

I have watched the windows resources to see if they run out.

I have monitored the CPU usage to see if there are any patterns.

I have removed part of the memory and swapped out the banks to see if that would make a difference.

I have played with a few of the overclocking settings (to underclock a bit) (I am running with no overclocking enabled now).

I've tried disabling all non-essential services and letting the computer run idle until it locks up.

I have disconnected all devices except for monitor, keyboard, SATA hard drives, and one ATA DVD drive (no RAID, no ATA drives, no USB except for keyboard).

I tried disabling AERO.

I have, of course, validated that I am running the newest video, audio, motherboard, etc. drivers.

My computer has been on service 3 times, and they changed;

Graphic card
Motherboard
Power Supply

...and still the problem occurs.

Welcome

Has to be just guesses at this point. You have tested all the usual causes.

How did you get your OS? Preinstall, upgrade or clean install?

Next time you have a problem, try to check the event viewer. Type those words in search.

I got my OS from Microsoft Upgrade Program.
I did a clean install three days ago to see if it fixed it, but no luck.

OK Good so far. Now, use your computer, everytime there is a problem, take down the time. After about 6 problems. Go to the event viewer and let me know if there are any common problems, that show error, that may be the source of the problem.

Just error, not warning, etc.

Also, do a clean boot and tell me what happens

After "playing" with the clean boot the problem continues even if all my services (not from Microsoft) was disabled, and all start-up programs.
