Ram: 2.1 GB
Power Supply: generic 450 watts
Graphics Card: Inno3d Nvidia GT 220
Motherboard: Asus P5G41T LX

Your 3.3v feed is out of spec, but I don't know if that alone would cause your symptoms.

I had to replace a MB with a buzzing audio issue, but the audio problem was persistent and the only symptom.

Mine was less than two weeks, but the symptoms were not identical, so it may not be your MB. I was simply giving you a data point to consider in your troubleshooting.

Buzzing audio is a symptom that *can* be displayed by a bad motherboard. But mine wasn't freezing like yours.

It could be something as simple as a software issue, but it's too much of a coincidence that the symptoms appeared after a power issue, so I'm leaning toward hardware with the available info.
