So I've had my computer for about 4 years now. However, I upgraded it 2 weeks ago and this problem has occurred only 3 times now. The first two times it happened, I was just playing videogames and it just froze up on me and made a weird constant buzz noise till I forced it to shut down. The third time I was playing video games but I loaded up a video on my other monitor and halfway through the video it froze up and made the same buzz noise.

My computer specs:

Cpu: i5 4440 (recently upgraded)
Mobo: Asus Z87-A (Recently upgraded)
OS: Windows 7 64bit (reinstalled because of Mobo)
Video: GTX 560 Ti 1gb
Ram: 6gb ddr3

Thanks so much guys!

That's a HARD freeze. If you've got any things overclocked, downclock them. I'm guessing it's your gpu because my 560ti did the exact same thing when it started to crap out on me. You should underclock you gpu. I had to bring mine all the way down to 500mhz to get the freezing to stop. If the problem keeps happening, downclock your CPU to see if that's broken. If your gpu is broken RMA or replace it. What temps are you getting on your GPU?

Sorry for the late reply! I was out of town. I have taken your advice and downclocked my gpu but it's still freezing. It's really annoying when I engage in gaming :/ . My gpu runs from 58-68 celcius.
