Motherboard - GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

Rest of computer: | i5 2500k | Gigabyte 7850 2GB | 8GB G.SKILL DDR3 | GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 | Samsung 840 Pro 128gb SSD | Samsung F3R 1 TB HDD | Antec 902

So I have had a boatload of issues lately, mainly being unable to game due to the fact I get a black screen, buzzing sound, and complete system freeze 5 minutes into gaming which I have to manual reboot to fix. Attempting everything I know (extremely limited) in order to figure out how to fix this. First things first trying to update all drivers for virtually everything on my PC.

I downloaded drivers from this site: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...

When I went to install some of them like the audio, they worked, but for a lot of them they said the "system does not meet the minimum requirements". Now I may be stupid when it comes to computers, but I think I can find the right drivers for my motherboard by punching which one it is into the website, so not sure how they do not meet requirements or aren't compatible? Anyone know of any other way I can finish updating all drivers and see if this fixes my problem. Much appreciation! Thanks in advance. . .

Let me guess, you have a Realtek audio driver and it only happens in some games?

I do have a Realtek audio driver. But the computer freeze happens whenever I play any game. Tried to play BF3, MW2, MW3, GTA 4, Farcry 3, even the old Age of Empires III and Medieval 2. It is currently impossible to game at all on my computer. . .

Do you have USB headphones? Can you do me a favour and plug them in? Use them and play a game. See if it happens.

Realtek has a horrid history of causing games to freeze or crash with a buzzing sound.
