Routine crashing with buzzing sound when playing video games.

Q: Routine crashing with buzzing sound when playing video games.

I apologize in advance if my post is missing any information; I attempted to follow the directions for properly posting but while I'm am computer functional, I'm not overly computer literate.

I'm running:
Windows 7 Professional computer 64 bit
4.0GB of RAM
AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor 3.20 GHz

The system constantly crashes when playing video games and games consistently lag. We have completely re-installed the OS and replaced all parts in the PC at least twice. When the system crashes the speakers buzz loudly, although sometimes it sounds like it's coming from the computer itself.

We switched from Nvidia because everything has checked out and it was hoped that the problem was the hardware not playing nice to no avail. I'm still getting the same error/crash.

The error report that comes up upon reboot is:
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48

For anything regarding erasing your history and maintaining privacy, I really recommend downloading History Fixer. It deletes all traces of online and offline computer activity including Internet searches, history and chat sessions. Includes a file shredder feature.

A: Routine crashing with buzzing sound when playing video games.

All except last one showed up a WHEA error stating that there was a timeout failure of the northbridge bus between CPU and RAM. Commonly this is due to a mobo, RAM or CPU failure. Just to make sure, if you believe your system is stable enough, you can attempt updating your BIOS for your mobo as that can commonly fix things. In most cases however, this is a problem that will only be resolved by swapping hardware.

If you wish, you can run some hardware tests as followed in the order given:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestCL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)

All of these (excluding MemtestCL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better.

Hey,

Basically started last Friday, i installed crisis and played it for a bit and everything worked fine. I then installed black and white 2 and after 20mins of playing it the screen went blank and there was a buzzing noise coming from my speakers. I switched off the computer and uninstalled black and white 2 and crisis. I then began playing LOTRO and the problem still persisted! So I decided to do a disk defrag, there was no change. I then restored by PC to a a couple of days before I installed crisis and Black and white 2 but its still happening whenever I play LOTRO, but this time the blank screen is not accompanied by the buzzing noise from the speakers.
I really dont know what to do and this is becoming a bit frustrating. It only seems to happen when I'm playing games.

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

Hello! So I built my desktop in January of 2012, but about 2 or 3 months ago I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. For about the past 2 months I've been having some issues with my graphics, where my graphics will just crash randomly. My games don't lag or give any indication pointing to my video card struggling to run the game. I only crash in Diablo 3, Dungeon Defenders (first one), and Hearthstone. I can run Fallout 4 perfectly fine with no lag or crashes; youtube videos and everything else runs perfectly. I've tried reinstalling Windows 10 a few times and my most recent install was earlier this month (November 2015).
 
I've uploaded my DxDiag.txt, MSInfo32.txt, and Event Viewer information.
 
Let me know if you need any more information! Thank you for your help!

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

Hello, I've been having problems for quite some time now and upon google search after search there doesn't seem to be an answer. When the audio is on, for videos, games, music, etc. it sometimes "skips" like an old cd player. Its pretty obnoxious, and I'm wondering why exactly this is so. I'm assuming I have an old driver or something, because I upgraded my pc from win 7 to win 8 pro. Thanks for the help and let me know if anyone needs clarification!

A:Jittery sound when playing music/video games (Win 8 Pro)

Audio is always on a shared Interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. Depending on the shared device, it can "interrupt" the audio and cause skipping.

If you have the HP supplied IDT audio driver for Win 7, it is also compatible for Win 8. However, check the Device Manager and see what devices are listed in the Sound section. You should ONLY have the correct IDT sound driver and possibly HDMI audio (if your system has this) and nothing else. If "HD Audio Codec" (the generic Windows installed sound driver) is also listed, or any other sound, except the IDT and possibly HDMI, uninstall those as they can cause conflicts and other audio problems. Restart the PC if you uninstalled anything.

If you only have the correct entries in the sound, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDG and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (do not uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will fix any potential corruptions between Windows and the sound and sometimes will put the sound on a different shared IRQ and fix or mimimize any interruptions.

Hello! As the title says whenever I'm playing a game it'll randomly freeze for a couple seconds and buzz/loop the current sound through my speakers. Sometimes it won't recover and I'll have to shut off my computer manually. Sometimes after a long freeze it will say Display driver crashed but recovered, I've tried updating my drivers multiple times but nothing. I'm honestly not that computer savy, I've cleaned my computer multiple times and clean started it. Works for a bit but then right back at it. It could be that my graphics card isn't strong enough for the games I play? Doubtful but I'm not sure, especially since I turn down all the graphics. It usually only occurs if I'm playing a game and have a tab open or something. Also did a computer info scan that I'll attach. Thank you for your time! Truly do appreciate any help you guys can give me.

Hello All,

I have built my own PC and I've been facing random freezing with buzzing sound issue while playing almost all games (Battlefield 3, Assassins Creed II and Revelation, CoD - MW 3, and Black Ops, Batman Arkham City and recently Saints Row 3) this freezing issue is really random and can happen anytime during gameplay.
I've updated all drivers (graphics, sound, BIOS etc). One thing to note is some of these games work without freezing for hours when I set Affinity to two CPUs but when I start playing Saints Row 3 with Affinity set to 2 CPUs the games becomes very slow and if I increase CPUs then it freezes after few minutes. I've tried to reseat the heatsink with thermal paste added two cabinate fans one blowing out and one in but this has not solved my problem.
I ran HWiNFO64 tool and saved log file of various readings while playing Saints Row 3 when freezing issue happened and I do not see any heating problem.

Hi guys,

sorry in advance, it seems like this question has been asked to death, but I've found a ton of different answers and i'm just a little overwhelmed as to what to do.

so, a little background, built this computer about 4 years ago. it didn't have too many issues, except that for a while it would suddenly shut off while i was playing some more graphically demanding games. turned out this was overheating, and it was especially bad since i was in texas at the time and it was a really hot summer. after reapplying the thermal grease on the cpu, i haven't had the problem since.

then, for a good while (a few years) no major issues,

anyways, lately these days i've been having this problem where the computer just freezes- and a buzzing sound comes out of the speakers. it shows the last frame, and i'm sure the buzzing is the last sound being looped over and over again. no mouse movement, nothing-- have to do a hard shutdown.

at first the issue seemed to only appear when i played games that strained the computer more. but the issue seems to have gotten worse. once it crashed while i was just using an internet browser. another time it crashed in the "welcome" screen. at one point, i used ccleaner, and defragged, and it seemed to mitigate the issue, but it's gotten worse again.

anyways i'm just wondering, how can i isolate the problem? what steps should i take? would a system restore help? i'm really hoping it's not a hardware problem, but a driver thing ... Read more

A:Crashing Problem, buzzing sound.

Hi Ted. Welcome to the forum.

Yes, hardware can crap out pretty much anytime, but it is more likely when the hardware is new, and when it gets old. So unless you know of a cause and effect symptom regarding drivers - you installed a new driver (or new component) and then the problems started - then you must consider hardware failure as a likely possibility.

Symptoms like yours have a couple of likely suspects: Overheating, RAM, and the Video Card. You could do some tests of these to start with.

For overheating try this: Take the sides off the case and set up a house fan to blow air directly at the case. Run the PC like that for a while. See if the symptoms go away.

For RAM, run a diagnostic. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool is the best. Start the test before you go to bed and check the results in the morning. The more passes it does the better the test. No errors is the only acceptable result.

For the video card try a clean reinstall:
Go to the ATI or nVidia website and download the most current known good driver and save it to an easy to find location.
Now go into Windows Explorer and in the C: drive find the nVidia or Program Files > ATI folder (inside will be Drivers > your driver version) and delete it (the whole folder).
Go into Start > Control Panel > Remove a Program and uninstall all programs for the video card. For nVidia, do PhysX and the Vision drivers first, then the main driver. The control panel will un... Read more

I am experiencing a buzzing sound when I play music online.  I primarily listen to music through the microblogging site Tumblr.  For example, if I had a song playing for a minute or so and opened a new tab I will hear a buzzing sound for anywhere between 2 to 10 seconds.  Other times, particularly during songs that are longer, the audio will fail and I will get an error message with a red x on the song I clicked.  Neither of these problems happen all the time.  The buzz is more prominent and seems to happen more frequently when I am opening and closing tabs.  
 
I have narrowed this down somewhat.  It does not happen when I play an actual CD in the drive.  It does not happen when I listen to a song on Youtube.  It does not happen if I play an mp3 that I have saved on my computer.  It does not happen when streaming a podcast.  I have listened to podcasts that are over an hour long and did not get the buzzing or failed audio message.  It does not happen in Internet Explorer.
 
This seems to be related to tumblr sites and/or Chrome.  I have pasted a link as an example of a song where this occurs.

Prior to this however I had been experiencing crashes on the game Battlefield 3, which then started making my other games Crysis 2 and Shogun 2 crash as well. What I had done to remedy this particular problem was to throw in a couple new entries into regedit, update to the latest REALTEK drivers for the onboard sound, and fiddle with the sound settings in the mixer as to the specific instructions of those on the Battlefield forums.

Hey,

Basically I'm really stumped here and need some help! For Christmas I bought myself a new Motherboard bundle (specs below) and installed it and everything has been working fine, CPU has been running between 40-50% and there haven't been any general problems at all.

However about a week ago I was playing a game and my computer just crashed, no blue screen, no minidump...literally nothing. However i did have headphones in and i could hear a buzzing. Took them out and turned my speakers on and the buzzing was still there. I had no option but to hit the reset switch on the front of my case.

And just now (hence why I'm posting) the same thing happened. I was watching a film and it just crashed, once again nothing on the screen, just nothing to even indicate a potential problem

So i have come here in hope that someone will be able to help me with this. Funny enough i'm an IT Technician myself, and I have never come across this problem, so i wouldn't even know where to start. Please any advice is welcome, I just want to get to the bottom of this.

What your are experiencing is commonly referred to as "crashed to desktop". This is directly related to your GPU. Have you gone to AMD's website and downloaded the latest driver for your 4600 series GPU? That's where I would start at.

Hi everyone,

4 months ago freezing problems started with my laptop and running chkdsk and hdd regenator repaired bad sectors and this relieved my pc health making it better than before, but not totally sufficient.

However in the past 2 months I am suffering from a new set of freezing issues which occur so often and i could not manage to solve or get any improvement. Basically, it happens
1)every 20-40mins and freezing lasts about 5minutes. if I am playing a music video on a website, then the speaker would be forcing itself to play the music for less than a minute which would be heard as buzzing, and then it will stop.
2) Same type of freezing also occurs when a game is open while all browsers and music players are closed in the background.
3) In rare occasions no freezing occurs but skype crashes during a voice call giving an error related to shockwave. I believe this could be a related problem but not sure.

here some more info:
-graphics driver is updated to latest version and downgrading back to the older versions did not help
-no disk errors could be found using chkdsk and hdd regenarator scans/repairs
-Uninstalling flash player and installing/upgrading to the latest version did not work
-cleaning cache using ccleaner, diskdefragmenting using popular softwares, or running popular computer care taker softwares did not help.
-windows 7 has the latest updates.

Yesterday I needed a tool for conversion of MOV files to WMV files and I found this program:

Free Convert MOV AVI to FLV Flash WMV Converter - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

During the install, it said that some of my media drivers were "obsolete" or something like that and offered to delete them from the registry. The dialog box said "Yes - recommended". I clicked "Yes" to all prompts - there were at least 15-20 of them. Then the program installer installed some codec packs. I am pretty sure that ffdshow and K-Lite were installed although I don't know which version. I think there was also some 3rd type of codec pack but I can't remember the name. It also installed some strange version of media player classic (1.3.1976.0).

Anyway, the program didn't actually work after installation, it was shareware and asked me for money to convert entire files. So I uninstalled it from the Control Panel/Programs.

Unfortunately, now I have a problem when playing ALL media files. It manifests as a strange intermittent buzzing sound during music playback (in Winamp, Windows media player and Foobar - they all have this problem). Also, the buzzing sound appears during playback of video files in KMPlayer or Windows Media Player (it seems that in WMP the problem is more pronounced).

The buzzing sound occurs unpredictably. There is no specific rule to when it will occur. So if I play a sound file 5 times, it will be heard at diffe... Read more

Hello!

Operating system: W7 Homepremium 64bit

This has been happening for months, everytime when I scroll in google chrome, panning and zooming images through Windows Photo Viewer, my computer makes a buzzing sound through the external speakers not the internal pc speaker, typicaly in a weird frequency when I do scroll/pan/zoom. This also happens in some other apps but surprizingly it does not happen on Mozilla firefox.

By the way, my google chrome is updated to the latest version. Sometimes it gets really annoying as the frequency disrupts my ear.

Thank you very much. All help is appreciated!

This occurs sometimes several times a day, sometimes it does not happen for a few days. It first started in August after I did a fresh install of the OS (had bad malware) and updated the drivers using the CD that came with my computer (Alienware X-51). After about 2 months the problem went away but started again in February. The freeze usually happens within 5-10 minutes of starting up my computer.

Sometimes it is a BSOD and it reboots after a few seconds, usually it is just the frozen screen and buzzing noise, and does not respond to any input.

The problem happens 99% of the time during a video (Netflix) or when playing a game. This might not be meaningful, I use this computer mostly for those tasks.

I have my graphics card up to date, and have tried using Control Panel to automatically update the drivers for my various components. AFAIK I have done everything to update my computer's drivers short of using 3rd party software like DriverUpdate but I have heard that those are scams.

I have run memory diagnostic and it came back clean. I have dusted out the internal components. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello guys new here. First off I have an extremely horrible, slow computer, so please dont make fun of me saying how bad my pc is, i know its horrible, eventually ill get a new one. Extremely slow. Dell inspiron 660s, core 2 duo at 2.9 ghz, 8GB of ram, and horrible intel hd graphics. I have played a few games since I got windows 10 on it, both run great at mid level graphics, world of warcraft, and euro truck simulator 2. This issue has happend before when I had windows 7, but not in a long time. Since I got windows 10, both playing wow and the truck game, in game, the computer freezes, makes a horrible buzzing sound, and cant be accessed unless i hold the power button, and reset the computer. No blue screen. Right when I restarted the pc i checked the processor temps, 90 degrees C, down to 80 degrees C. It seems the processor isnt overheating but I blew the dust out of the heat sink anyways. I tried starting euro truck simulator 2, and for such a high graphic game, I can run it at decent graphic settings with decent framerates for such a horribly slow computer. I have no dedicated GPU, and a horrible CPU, its not an I7. But 10 minutes in the truck game, the computer freezes again. Looking at the event viewer I am given a generic power kernel, which only means the computer has been unexpectedly shut off. It cant be a bad power supply because when I dont play games, I watch netflix and live tv on the computer for hours at a time, no freeze. This only happens during games. So i... Read more

It doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

► Test the RAM modules.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run it for at least eight passes. Preferably overnight.

This is a common problem, and you have 2 issues.

1 A buzzing sound.
2 Video lag.

You could look at your codecs.
Have you got any power cables crossing and speaker cables.
Does this happen when you are using earphones(Try using earphones, if you have no buzzing this will answer alot of questions)

I have a weird, and infuriating problem.  When I connect my HP 350 G2 laptop to the internet with ethernet cable, everything works just fine. Streaming videos don't lag much and things work. But when I use the wireless card, this happens: Even though I get 5/5 bars, so the connection is strong...  The sound (and sometimes picture) has weird stuttering and freezing. It makes a buzzing sound. For example if I watch a video and someone says: "Let's go and get them", it could sound like this: "LetTRRRRRR's go and gTRRRRRRRRRet them". It happens every 20-60 seconds, roughly. Video playback on wireless is more stuttery otherwise too, compared to ethernet. I have tried to shut down programs and services on the background that I don't need, no help. This model uses the Realtek wireless card. I also installed the driver again, no help. My connection should be fast enough, 24mbit ADSL. All my drivers are the latest from HP site.  When I play the same streaming videos on my iPad, they work flawlessly. If anybody could point me to the right direction what to try next, I would be grateful. This is driving me crazy. Thank you.  EDIT: I didn't know how to properly describe it, but I found this on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF9Pvdsz0UM It sounds on my computer exactly like his (check the video from 47-52 seconds). 

A:Wireless + buzzing sound + lagging video

  OK, I just made an interesting discovery. But I am still puzzled.  When I first got this computer, I tried to clone the drive to an SSD. For some reason it didn't boot. I've cloned many drives in the past, I have no idea why this was different and what I should have done differently. So. I put in the SSD and installed Win8.1 from the scratch, got all the latest drivers from HP. Then my aforementioned sound problems started. SO, I put the original drive back in, with the original factory installation. With that the streaming video is still a little twitchy, but I guess you can expect that from WiFi. But the sound problem is gone. What I now wonder is: - How come I couldn't clone the drive in the first place, what is so different about Win8.1 and/or HP laptops that I should know about, compared to other drives I've cloned. - Could it have something to do with the SSD? I doubt that though(?) - Is it that for some reason the older version of the driver works better than the one on HP site. - IS THERE A SPECIFIC ORDER to install the drivers, chipset, LAN etc.... or ? - How an earth am I going to get the SSD on my computer now, I am so used to its speed. Any ideas about safely cloning it? - Wonder if installing Win10 would make any difference? I even tried to first put it in, then restore the system from recovery discs, but it always immediately stops with an error: 0xefffff23  Any advice wo...

Hey guys, long time lurker, but never felt the need to get an account until now lol. I just bought a PC off cyberpower but it keeps crashing when playing games such as WoW or CS source. The specs are:
AMD Phenom X4 945 (4)
MB: Gigabyte MA790XT-4UDP
HD: Western digital - WD3200AAJS - 300 GB
GPU: HD 4850 Radaeon
8 GB of ram

So when I first got it, and it started freezing up I bought it with a Nvidia 9500 GT and I assumed it must have been the vid card but it keeps freezing still. I am running on Vista (64 bit) and not too sure how to fix it. One day I lowered my Vista display settings and WoW was running perfectly but then the next day I tried booting it up again with the same settings and I kept crashing.
Just today I realized a message when loading up my comp stating: AMD data change- update new data to DMI, I wasn't too sure what it meant but I played with the BIOS and tried seeing if SATA2 connection to my HD was the problem? I think it is MOBO or HD related but can't be sure, I am in desperate need of help and would appreciate any advice, thanks guys.

Hi,

BSODs remaining after reinstall suggest there is a hardware fault of some description.

Please run these hardware tests:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html (run the Blend test as well as the SmallFFTs test)

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Some of your BSODs mention graphics drivers, be sure to run the Furmark stress test a couple of times (give the graphics card time to cool down in between runs).

Also, if you can find an update for your networking driver update it:

Hi

Hoping you can help. I've got a new PC and it is randomly crashing when playing games. So far its crashed on Total War, SWTOR and Sims 3.

The screen instantly goes blank, the sound freezes and it just stays like that. I have to force it to shut down and restart. I've played around with graphics options for the games and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

I've opened up the case, no dust as the PC is only a few weeks old and nothing seems to be loose. I've ran WhoCrashed and it says there are no valid crash dumps and CPUID it showing the temperature of the graphics card isn't getting above 65c when playing.

? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 32-bit
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, blank hard disk
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? OEM
? Age of system (hardware) Bought around a month ago
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? reinstalled everything at the weekend.

? CPU - AMD FX - 6100 6 core - 3.3GHz
? Video Card - AMD Radeon HD 7800 series
? MotherBoard - Gigabyte GA 970A DS3
? Power Supply - brand & wattage 750W don't know what brand it is.

? System Manufacturer - Novatech.
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)

Any help gratefully received

A:Crashing when playing games

Hi,

Since the PC is brand new, rather than going back & fourth with troubleshooting, contact where you bought it from and get a replacement as it's brand new and still falls under warranty, and a brand new system should never freeze during games.

So I get those crashes where my screen freezes and then goes dark ( lost signal). It happens at random with Blade and Soul , and happens every 5 minutes with World of Warcraft.

This started like 2 months ago ( only found this forum today , thanks for that) , before that the screen would just flash and I'd get the "display driver stopped responding and recovered".

Yesterday ( 02/16/2016) I got 5 crashes and I got 1 today.

What I already tried:
A lot of different versions of AMD drivers ( using DDU to install the new ones)
Reset windows 10 on a lot of occasions
Removed Windows 10 auto updater.
Tried the amd support forums ( it only made matters worse)
Tried the World of warcraft support forums ( also only made matters worse)

Here is the dump file:

Suggestions while you wait on a proper BSOD analyzer to read your DMP file. Check for heat related or voltage issues, monitor temps for GPU, CPU and fan speeds with HWInfo choose correct 32bit or 64bit http://www.hwinfo.com/

Would be best if you can monitor them within game and can be done with combinations of 2 software, HWInfo listed above and MSI Afterburner or Riva Tuner and MSI Afterburner.

Hey TSG, I have a problem with my computer when playing games. In some of the newer, higher demanding games, mainly Mass Effect 2, Sims 3, Modern Warfare 2, and occasionally Team Fortress 2, my computer freezes, the monitor goes black and shows no input, the sound loops, everything is unresponsive. This occurs for about 5 seconds straight until it either restarts itself, or I have to press the reset button.

Possible causes:
1. I heard from a number of other threads that it could be from over heating. I've monitored my temperatures while ingame, and the only real problem was that Core 0 was about 60 degree C. Also, sometimes this freezing happens after 5 minutes of turning on the PC and playing a game in the morning.

2. Also from another thread I read it could be from a low performance PSU, which then I relised I had the computer's default one. But I bought a new $100 PSU, which should be more than capable of handling this.

3. This is a personal theory of mine, but I have two wall sockets running my PC system and other devices. But for each of these two plugs, I have a power board plugged in to allow more devices to run, such as my printer and speakers. My computer shares the wallsocket with my monitor, speakers and internet power plug, while the other powerboard powers my printer, homephone and wireless mouse. Maybe there isn't enough power getting to the computer?

Well, I'm not quite sure what forum to put this in as I'm not quite sure what the source of the problem is, but hopefully this is fine. Anyways, I'm currently running Vista 32bit and have been having some problems. When I first got the computer everything was fine, games ran just fine and whatnot, but then I started playing Call of Duty 4. The game was a bit unstable to begin with and seemed to get worse as time went on. It would, with relative consistency, bluescreen or just generally crash.

I figured it was just an issue with the drivers since nVidia drivers seem to have problems working on Vista correctly, so I tried various different drivers but to no avail. One driver that I installed seemed to be extraordinarily unstable and made everything run horribly, so naturally I uninstalled it and reinstalled an old drivers that were relatively stable. However, after I reinstalled the old ones, none of my games would work without crashing after like 20-30 minutes. Now, I don't think this crashing was the case with all of my games until after that one driver installation. However, I was really only playing Call of Duty 4 at the time so I'm not sure of the performance of my other games. Before, I could sometimes play Call of Duty 4 for somewhat extended periods, yet now it typically crashes almost immediately. When just doing regular things, like browsing the internet, using Word and whatnot, it is fine. It has only bluescreened me once when I was just at my desktop,... Read more

Well looking at where it says the component reported is the processor core; it sounds like it could be the processor itself that is partially on its way out; or it could be the driver(s) for the cpu processor possibly need updating and or reinstalling. I would try first to see you can update the drivers via the motherboard manufacturers site or the system makers site depending on whether or not it is a custom build.

RELEVANCY SCORE 63.2

I've been facing this problem for a while, and I have absolutely no idea what to do, tried googling the solutions but none of the posts I found were very helpful. I start playing any game for a while, and then the screen goes all black and in standby mode, the sound keeps playing for a few seconds until it starts looping, and I have to restart. There's no specific time for the crash, sometimes it takes 10 minutes, sometimes 35 minutes...This has been happening for a month now, with games that have been working very fine before, like Skyrim, The Sims 2, Heroes VI, Renegade (which is a bit old so I'm guessing it's not very graphics related..)

Here are some specs of my personalized desktop:
Windows Vista Ultimate Service pack 2
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200 @ 2.53GHz 2.53 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 9400
2.00GB RAM
32-bit Operating system

I also have to point out that I have 1 GB of free space on C, and 6 on D, but it has been like that for over a year now and I haven't faced any problem with it (except more or less slow performance *sometimes*)

I ran a speedfan test since most of those facing similar problems have been asked to do that, and here are the results:
CPU0Fan: 1140 RPM
GPU: 74C
System: 81C
CPU: Between 39-45C (goes up and down every 2 seconds)
AUX: 125C
Temp: 74C
HD0: 43C
Core 0: 58C
Core 1: 58C

Help please? :/

A:Computer crashing a while after playing games

Your cores shouldn't be 58C just at idle. Aswell your gpu is too high for idle.

It'll stress just you video card. If it crashs up, or gets to 105C You have heat issues with the gpu.

Also d/l prime95 |MG| Prime95 27.7 Download
It'll stres just your cpu. If you get over 75C or crash, you have heat issues.

Odds are you need a good cleanout and thermal paste redo.

A:Comp keeps crashing when playing games?

When's the last time you cleaned out your case? CPU and video fans and PSU fans get glogged with dust and your system overheats.

So my computer has been crashing while playing games after updating a bunch of hardware. Screen freezes up with a weird pattern. Vertical running lines over some monocolored background with sound stuttering.
Here's what I've tried so far:
Complete dust cleaning (not dusty since many things are new)
Reseating just about everything
Logging temperature to make sure no overheat (65 C max on GPU, lower on CPU, no overheat)
Making sure my system drivers are updated (graphics, .net framework, directx, etc)
Here are my specs:
OS: Windows 7
GPU: AMD R9 290x
CPU: i5 4670k
MOBO: Gigabyte H8M1 -HD3
Hard drive: Samsung 250 GB SSD
PSU: Corsair 750
Here's what it looks like when it crashes: http://imgur.com/PaZASx5

A:Computer crashing while playing games

What game does it crash? Does it give you any error message?
 
I'm a PC gamer as well, you can find me on Steam by typing Jerky McDilerino into the friend search box, and the first result should be me with a bleepingcomputer profile picture.
