I reformated my computer like a week ago, with Windows 7 ultimate 64bit. Every so often the computer will completely stop what its doing. The screen will still show what was going on. But nothing will work, I can move the mouse or anything and my CPU monitor just stops, but the computer is still running. It stops and it makes this loud constant noise through my speakers. I want to say this is my graphics card doing the problem. I may think its the new ATI drivers..
I7 930 at 4.0ghz.
6GB of dominator memory, triple channel.
p6x58d-e motherboard, by ASUS.
ATI Sapphire 5870. Stock speeds.
Tunic Tower extreme Cooler.
CM storm sniper case.
I reformatted because I was having issues with my keyboard lagging behind..
