My system has been freezing recently. It usually happens when watching video and more often when watching streaming video than playing a video off my hdd. When it happens the system locks up and the audio goes into a repeating loop. Sometimes the hard drive light stays lit. Sometimes the system will recover on its own but I usually have to hit the reset button. No BSOD and nothing useful in the logs. All drivers are up to date.
I'm having a hard time determing which piece of hardware is at fault... The video card is most obvious because it happens while watching video but I'm not so sure thats the problem. All of my temps are in normal ranges during the freeze, I let memtest make a pass and had no errors (perhaps i need to let it make a few more passes?), and I just replaced the PSU although I had the same problem with the old PSU.
Yes all of my drivers are up to date along with plug-ins such as flash and silverlight.
The system freezes more often when watching a video on hulu (flash) or netflix (sliverlight) but It occasionally happens when playing a video off my HDD.
