So recently, I've been hearing these sounds that come from my CPU whenever I play games or execute some processes. When I hear that sound, my game freezes after a couple of seconds until my PC freezes completely.
Windows XP SP3
GeForce 9600 GT
AMD Athlon X2 4200+ Dual Core
I understand how fustrating it can be when computers decide to do their own thing
CPUs in general do not makes sounds , how are you sure that the location of the is coming from the cpu it could possibly be the fan . If you could describe the sound that you are hearing that would also be helpful.
Also if you leave your computer idle does it freeze?
