Buzz sound and freezing when playing games or watching videos

Q: Buzz sound and freezing when playing games or watching videos

A couple of days ago my pc started to behave weird. It would turn off when I'm playing games. But the weird thing is that the blue light on my pc would not go off, only my monitor would. But I could hear that the tower was making no noise at all. I thought it would be overheating so I oponed my case and cleaned it (it was really dusty). After I cleaned it it worked fine again but the next day I got a weird buzz and at the same time my game stutters/freezes. This happens every few seconds and then stops for maybe 10 minutes and then repeats it self by stuttering/freezing for like 10 minutes again. It's really annoying but I can't rule out overheating because I downloaded HwMonitor and it said that my Geforce GT 320 gets to like 104 degrees while playing games. I cleaned it but I just can't get it to lower. I know the graphics card isn't good but I can't upgrade due to the size of my case.

If anybody knows how I can fix my problem please comment.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Buzz sound and freezing when playing games or watching videos

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

If it's a constant buzzing sound or a ticking sound I would go with something like a wire brushing against a fan, or possibly a dead hard drive which makes like a grinding squealing noise. It could also be the CPU fan, if it's a really cheap fan and the blade is spun while the fan is not on the motor can burn out. This will usually either stop the fan from moving at all or it will still spin a little and make a grinding hum.

All of these aren't good, like if you were to keep watching YouTube, freeze, reboot, YouTube, freeze, whatever part that isn't liking this WILL die completely eventually. If it's the hard drive, your files may be at stake, or if it's the CPU fan you may need a whole new computer, so this is why I'm letting you know. So I would stop watching videos if you don't have to.

First, update the drivers for your graphic card. Download the latest drivers for the card and Driver sweeper. Uninstall the old drivers, run driver sweeper. It will clean the leftovers of the old driver. Install the latest driver.

Keep the case open and see if the temps goes down. Are you saying 104 C? if yes, you might fry the card.

My computer kept freezing when i watch video in fullscreen or playing games
I tried to go to safe mode but my monitor show no signal at the monitor screen
I tried uninstall the graphic card then suddenly my monitor screen show no signal

I reformatted the com but it still doesn't work
When i using the recovery disc the monitor show no signals but i still can do a full system recovery by using my imagination as the screen show no signals

Sometimes a message will pop up says kernel driver error

Im using windows 7 Home Premium , my graphic card is GT220
Here are my computer Specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
System Manufacturer: Acer
System Model: Aspire M5800
BIOS: Default System BIOS
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
Memory: 3072MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 3072MB RAM [please help me]

A:[HELP]Computer keep freezing while watching videos and playing games.

Can you see the POST screen / BIOS prior to loading Windows? Or is there no signal at all?



If you can see POST / BIOS but lose signal as Windows loads - then that's interesting, as the recovery/safe mode uses the generic VGA driver.


The fact that the PC kept freezing coupled with the loss of signal suggests that either the card, or power supply may be faulty.

I recently built a computer for someone, with relevant specs as follows:

Gigabyte SKT-1155 PA65-UD3-B3
Intel 2500K
Komputerbay 1333Mhz PC3 10600 / PC3 10666 8-8-8-24 1.5v 8 GB KIT
ASUS GTX 560

Ever since I delivered it to him, it's been either freezing (often with popping from his headphones) indefinitely or producing BSODs. These can be as often as a couple of times a day.

Generally the crashes occur when he is gaming or watching Youtube videos, but sometimes they also occur upon restarting the computer immediately after a crash.

Since we both have little time on our hands, it's become a game of trying to troubleshoot the computer remotely, thus far with limited success. I've tried replacing the memory as I thought this might have been the issue, but that didn't help.

I would be immensely grateful if somebody could have a look at the contents of his MiniDump folder, as having tried to interpret them myself I haven't got very far.

Thanks

Several of these were related to your Macaffee.

I would remove and replace with Microsot Security essentials at least to test.
ALSO, AND IMPORTANT

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

hi, i sometimes experience crashes when i watch Youtube videos. the screen turns black for awhile, then a message pops up (shown below).



that is one of the two problems i have. the second problem is when i'm playing a game (Heroes of Newerth) and my computer just freezes.

this all started after i used the program Driver Genius Professional to update my drivers. me being the dumbass that i am, did not create a backup before updating. after the update it fixed some of the sound issues i had with games, but also started causing crashes when i watched Youtube videos. this was about a month ago and as time passed it got worse and worse. it started causing my computer to freeze whenever i played games. after i restart my computer from a crash sometimes it starts up to a black screen and just sits there until i restart agan.

i've attached a .txt file with the information from dxdiag. i'm quite a "noob" when it comes to computers so if i have missed anything please let me know.


thanks.

My ideapad Y700-15ISK has been freezing while playing games for about 3 months now. It will be completely fine with no stuttering or lag during game play but seemingly at random it the keyboard will start not recognizing inputs and I will be forced to shut it off using the power button as during full screen games you can only exit them with the keyboard. The strange thing is that the game will still recognize mouse input as I can move it to make my character look around and the game runs fine as normal. This has happened with 3 games so far with varying degrees of severity and just recently my PC crashed while watching a video and wasn't able to reboot until I turned it off and on again. I am not to experienced with laptops but I suspect there could be a problem with the graphics card as I have noticed minor graphical blips during videos. I have contacted Lenovo support on mobile but they have come back with the solution of doing a factory reset 2 times so far. Its always nice to get a second opinion especially now with the crash that recently happend. Thank you for reading.

Hello,
 
For the last few weeks a game I run on my laptop, Final Fantasy XI, has been running at unusually high CPU. It's quite an old game(came out in 2002) and my laptop should be more than capable of handling it's requirements and has done so up until now. Additionally a similar thing occurs when watching YouTube videos except it's Flashplayerplugin. The thing is, when the game or adobe flash run, my CPU will jump to 99-100% but the process will only be 50-80k of memory, but when I check resource manager CPU, I see "System Interrupts" jumping around which I can't end or terminate. Once more I haven't had this issue before and I can't use a restore point(actually I tried to restore already and it doesn't help). I'm trying to avoid reformatting or reinstalling windows as I don't have the CD anymore and it's a huge hassle/pain.
 
I've tried the following countermeasures before finding out about this forum(from prior experiences/googling).
-Full scan Malwarbytes and removed all malware found.
-Ran TDSSKiller and removed rootkits.
-Tried Rkill.
-Scanreg
-Defrag
-System Restore
-Disk error scan
-Updated drivers
-Removed shady PUP's.

I'm running windows 7 on a Dell N5010 laptop
It works fine while just browsing with chrome or using skype, but as soon as I try to watch a video on youtube it won't play smoothly unless I have it on a stupid-low quality (with nexflix too)
same with my games on steam (I only have two downloaded right now- TF2 and Skyrim) and both of them are super laggy, even with the graphics, ect all set to low.. Minecraft does the same thing.
It gets pretty annoying as you can imagine.

I've tried closing all my background programs while playing and deleting a bunch of stuff to give more space on my RAM but nothing really seems to make any difference.

Any advice..??

A:Bad lag while playing steam games and watching videos

You're running Intel HD graphics that's built in to your laptop. wont do ya much good if you want to play games or watch movies. bare minimum internet browsing. If you want to play video games on a laptop, i recommend getting a new laptop that has dual video cards. one for highperformance (videogames/movies), one for power saving. Also, your i3 processor isnt helping much either.

Generally, laptops are meant to be upgraded every 3 years. I'd also recommend a desktop if you want to play video games. cheaper, more powerful

Hi everybody
everytime i watch a video or when i have many tabs running in the background (more than 3),cpu usage rises up to 100% and becomes sluggish. I think the problem started when i changed the mainboard (abit IL9Pro) to MSI (MS-7592). I recently upgraded from windows XP to windows 7 (a failed attempt to solve this issue) so i'm sure it got nothing to do with a virus.
so about my pc:-

Hello and welcome zechs,

The issue you describe could be a mixture of many different things. Unfortunately, although you provided good details in your first post, we do need more information.

Could you please download Piriform's Speccy, re-create your issue, open up Speccy, and click on File > Publish Snapshop.... This should give you a URL, can you post that in here please?

Whilst waiting for us to review the snapshot, could you also try a clean boot (links to Microsoft's site with details), and see if your issues remains?

Been getting a lot of BSODs lately, they used to happen frequently then they kind of just stopped, and now they seem to be starting up again for some reason, so I decided to finally try and get some help. I've attached the minidump file and I did a driver verifier which resulted in a BSOD immediately as I tried to sign back into windows 8 stating "driver verifier detected violation". So this happened twice before I went back into safe mode and disabled driver verifier. There are a few minidump files before the 2 from tonight and they are just random BSOD's that have happened in the past week I guess. Hope I've done this correctly, and it is greatly appreciated for anyone who helps.

Hey all. I've been getting bsod's mainly when I am playing League of Legends, or any other game really. It's been ongoing for about 2 months now. These past couple weeks have been very bad, happening every day. It's inconsistent as well, I could play for hours and nothing happens. Or sometimes I get many BSOD in a span of a short time. I should also mention it has randomly restarted several times with no bsod. Also a few moments ago, I had a bsod and restarted my computer to a black screen. I restarted several times, until about the 5th time it finally booted into windows. This is all happening after I just did a fresh install of windows a couple days ago.

Ok, so my computer started freezing about a week now while either playing videos or playing games. It doesn't happen right away though, happens randomly while playing games or watching videos. I can't remember if it happened while doing something else. Most of the time, the sound just bugs and loops and the screen freezes. Other times the pc freezes and immediately restarts. The BSOD only happened twice, the first time it didn't even display the full BSOD screen, just the top right of the screen. The last time it happened it showed the full BSOD and I took a picture. I could provide pictures if needed but i guess the information is already included in this file I attached. I ran a virus scan on Microsoft Security Essentials but nothing came up. I also just ran 1 pass of Memtest with no errors, but i will run it again overnight for more passes. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I have been getting a BSOD while either playing games like World of Warcraft, or even watching videos like youtube or netflix on both low and high resolutions.

I have attached the info you requested in the how to post thread.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- I have x64 Windows 7 Home Premium
- This is OEM install.
- I bought the system back in mid 2010?
- I have only reinstalled the OS once last year, I used the recovery partition to reinstall.

I do have AVG 2012 Free Edition installed on the system, along with Malware Bytes Pro Edition, the Resource and Performance tool apparently doesn't detect them. At the time of the scan UAC was diabled, it is enabled now, I disabled it for troubleshooting this issue.

Never mind on this topic, I decided to test drive the Windows 8 Customer Evaluation Copy, hopefully it fixes the issue, so far I like the new OS, it actually is running smoother on my system than Win7 did.

The last 4 days or so i have been experiencing roughly 2-3 BSOD's pr day on my system.

These faults usually happens when i am playing games or streaming videos online.

I have no hardware changes on the computer in a few months and i am not skilled enough to find out what these errors might be.

Hello, and thanks in advance to anyone that puts any thought into troubleshooting my BSoD issues.

I recently upgraded my computer and have installed all new hardware except for my HDD. (I did do a complete wipe and fresh install of Windows on my existing HDD after installing the new hardware, however.) Since upgrading my computer, I've been getting BSoDs that seem to rotate between three different error codes. The BSoD crashes often happen while playing various video games or while watching videos on YouTube or news sites.

I've tried everything that I can think of to resolve the issues and am at my wit's end at this point. Any assistance trying to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Possible helpful information:
I have performed a clean install of Windows on the HDD an additional 3 times since the original install after the build.
I have run MemTest86 on all ram sticks at the same time, as well as each ram stick individually, with zero errors.
I have replaced my new video card (including drivers) with an older borrowed video card thinking that my new card was defective. I've still had crashes.
I've only installed the video card drivers and not the additional programs packaged with the driver download.
I've had crashes while watching videos downloaded onto my computer and while streaming videos online.
The games I've played leading up to crashes are: Neverwinter Online, EverQuest, League of Legends.
I have not attempted to overclock any hardware.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contained heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. If you still experience BSOD's ona genuine installation, we will be happy to help you solve the problem

When it freezes, if I am watching a video or playing a game, the sound I am currently listening to will become "electronic like".

A:BSOD while watching videos, playing games or music

Hello Vlandor.

Since you are having problems when running something I have to ask you how old the hardware is. I had a similar problem my self not too lobg ago and it ended turning out to be the harddrive that was faulting.

My recommendation would be to run some benchmarking programs to see if you might get some kind of clues that way. Maybe you can find a bench mark that crashes your computer almost instantly compared to the other programs. I would recommend starting of with Prime95 for CPU stress testing and 3DMark for stress testing of your GPU. Please come back and tell us the results when you are done with the two.

Also i have to ask if you did any changes to the computer before these problems started to accur. Also a registry cleaner will not help you if you have tried a clean install of windows.

This BSOD happens mostly when I'm trying to run games. I don't do anything particularly graphically intensive on my computer, mostly WoW and things like Starbound and League of Legends. It also crashes occasionally while watching YouTube videos though this is much less frequent. The research I've done seems to imply it's some kind of issue with my drivers, but I have no idea how I would begin to solve that. I've tried re-installing my video drivers from scratch and it hasn't solved the issue. If you can do anything to help me out, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Hi ncolon.

The latest BSOD dump in the zip is of 07/03. It is a stop 0x3B.

Code:
BugCheck 3B, {80000004, fffff80002cc2e5a, fffff88009d14f90, 0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!SwapContext_PatchXSave+aa )

Followup: MachineOwner

Though it is not saying anything else precisely, but display driver failure is one of the probable causes of a stop 0x3B.

For the past few months I've been getting frequent BSODs. It seems that the more intensive programs or games cause my laptop to BSOD quicker, but doing something as simple as watching a Youtube videos still causes a crash after a while.

I believe the earliest issues started occurring when I went for that Windows 10 upgrade (http://i.imgur.com/CLsirHE.png) due to my video drivers apparently not being compatible past Windows 7. When I found out my driver wasn't compatible I reinstalled Windows 7, the graphical glitches cleared up, but the BSODs continued. So, about a month ago I tried a fresh format and installation of Windows 7 hoping it would fix it, but there are still issues. Attached is the results of the DM Log Collector covering each crash since the format.

Hello my laptop started crashing every time i play games and watch videos on player.


Code:

I reformatted it a month ago so i thought it would be fix but its still not fixed... I also thought it would be the heat or the usage of memory but i still haven't found what the problem is i keep getting random BSOD's about usbport.sys and other but i get more error codes....

A:BSOD when playing games or watching videos on a player...

Heat:
- only use the laptop on a hard surface - with nothing blocking any of the vents.
- use a laptop cooling pad if possible
- blow out all vents with canned air (DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor, they can damage the components).
- ensure that the fan comes on and is blowing air out of the vent (may not happen at startup, but should happen after using it for a while).

If you suspect memory, try these free diagnostics: Hardware Diags
If you reinstall Windows to fix a problem, and the problem remains - then it's most likely that this is a hardware problem. The diagnostics will help to rule out some of that.

I notice a Hotspot Shield network component. We've seen issues with this program recently. I'd suggest uninstalling it to test and see if it's the cause of the BSOD's.

Memory dumps blame hardware, with one blaming your video hardware.
Update the video drivers from the PC manufacturer's website (yours date from 2009).
If problems continue, then run the video tests from the hardware diagnostics link above.

I've been at a complete loss here for the past two weeks. Today was the first time I tried to take matters into my own hands. I uninstalled drivers and reinstalled them. I thought I was in the clear but after playing League of Legends my computer BSOD on me about 10 minutes in. This also happens while watching any youtube or flash video type stuff.

I would really appreciate some help as to whether this is a hardware problem or a software problem although I'm thinking hardware atm.

Hi. For the past 2 months or so, my computer has been crashing after watching any sort of video on any site for more than 5 minutes. It also happens when I play any video games on it. What could the problem be and why is it happening?

Hi,

This may or may not be a memory-related issue. Try downloading and booting into Memtest86+ and see if any errors get flagged during testing.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

For the past month or so, I've been having spontaneous (but inconsistent) BSoDs pop up on this laptop (It's only 2 months old and is a high-end gaming laptop) all with the same error of DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (0x9f). I haven't been able to pinpoint what's been causing it, as I've used a couple of solutions found from Google searching to no lasting success. Some of said solutions I've come across included disabling auto-sleep/hibernate on my laptop, to downgrading the drivers on my video card a notch.

With regards to downgrading my Video Card drivers, I had taken steps to downgrade them a level from the most recent version, after finding through some research that the drivers most recent from NVIDIA to go with my card apparently don't cooperate well with the OS (Windows 8.1), but it only kept the crashes from happening for a while.

I've already taken steps to set up crash dumps, and installed some debugging tools from Windows to read the dumps, as well as utilized BlueScreenViewer to investigate further, but I have not yet found anything that I could use to take steps to solve this problem. Checking the Device Manager has not yielded any notification of drivers malfunctioning or not working properly, so I have not been able to figure out what exactly was causing it.

In terms of results after the crashes, my Laptop itself seems to boot up relatively quickly, and seems to run fine, but has moments where there's a noticeable stall of about 2-3 seconds when doing ju... Read more

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

So the problem is on my laptop, When I view videos on youtube it's fine untill i switch to fullscreen. My mouse will be unaccurate and i will have to place it to the left of the button i wish to press; there is also a line usually down the right side of the screen asif the video has been pushed to the left and my mouse doesn't know this.The same thing happens with games on DX11 or 10 and The Sims 3.

I tried finding solutions on the internet but couldn't find any, I found one which was to disable Hardware acceleration in flash and it fixed it, but then I downloaded a video in Itunes and bam the problem reoccured. I can't download videos drivers because i'm unsure which to download and when I went onto the AMD site i got an erorr message saying contact your dealer as it's not compatible.

My question is simple,How do i fix it?
Btw my laptop is a Sony Vaio VPCCA with Intel i5 and Win 7.Oh, and I know there is a switchable graphics feature, but that wont do any good as I play quite heavy games.

Help please.

Try re installing Windows 7 fresh. Most laptops have a restore feature accessed during a start up. Laptops do tend to get bogged down with a lot of unnecessary stuff slowing things down and affecting other programs

This has been going on for a couple weeks now. Playing games on Facebook or watching videos on You Tube my computer will stall (like I was hitting the PAUSE button) just for 5-10 seconds and things will go on as normal. It happens every 20-40 minutes, just enough to interrupt the games I'm playing or the YouTube video I'm watching. (I run Avast for Security and Advanced System Care 7 for Malware) I' do routine maintenance often enough where I have no idea where, how or why?? Other function like writing a letter or email is fine without problems. I am running Vista Home Premium on my 5 year old Dell XPS 420. I am not a big gamer by any means. Most of the games I play are contained on Facebook. I am more the Music and Photo bug, all of which I have stored on my External Hard Drive. Oh, yeah, I also a Video bug and am always om YouTube checking out what' what. Someone, please HELP!! Any other questions I haven't addressed please let me know.

Since I purchased my computer two years ago, I've been having problems with the occasional crash when playing games. Over the past couple of months, the problem has been getting a lot worse, and my computer will crash/hang constantly when playing anything, including WOW, Rome: Total War, and Civilization IV. In addition to that, watching videos online, as well as on Windows Media Player also can result in crashes. I've even experienced full hangs when opening Microsoft Word or burning a DVD.

I've done a full MEMTEST and it found no errors. In addition to that, I believe my video and sound drivers are fully updated, and I've even tried plugging in a new graphic's card with no success. I have also cleaned out the dust from the inside of my computer. When I first experienced this problem, I formatted my computer and reinstalled everything, which also did not help solve my problem.

I have a
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU
[email protected]
2GB of Ram
Video Card: Radeon X800 XT
Sound: SoundMAX Intergrated Digital HD Audio

Thanks for any help that you can give me.

Hi guys,
I have windows 7 32-bit, previously I was using windows xp and with win XP I had the same problem and I installed windows 7 hoping that it may solve the issue but it didn't.

My PC specs are --->
Processor : Intel Core2Duo E7200 2.53Ghz
Motherboard: ECS 945GCT-M2
Graphics card : Nvidia 8400 GS
RAM : 2 GB
LAN CARD: Realtek onboard 8100C/810x Fast family ehthernet NIC
SOUND: IDT Audio onboard


My problem is---->
While playing games I can hear some audio pops at irregular intervals(10-15 seconds) and then the display freezes, sometimes I can hear the game audio even after the system freezes and sometimes I hear a regular continous 'brrrrr' sound after the freeze. The only option left is to restart the pc.
After the system restart a windows dialogue appears saying the following --->
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.4
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 1000007f

BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: 00000000
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 256_1



First I thought that playing games was overheating my gpu or cpu but I have encountered display freeze even when I am watching video. Sometimes I can hear audio pops when the system is lying ideal

I have attached the minidumps. Plz help.
Thanks in advance
