Computer keeps locking up Tags: Homebuilt Hardware Computer Systems Last response: January 7, 2013 5:55 AM in Systems Share Longfoehammer January 4, 2013 5:47:37 AM Hi, I'm not sure if I am using the term lock up right, but it seems that my computer is freezing for about a second at a time. The screen keeps the picture, but there is a buzzing sound. This happens no matter what programs I am running, it happens when I watch a video on Youtube, or playing Sleeping Dogs; the only difference is the rate at which these lockups occur. This only starting happening yesterday, and I have not installed any new hardware, and only installed some games that have not given me problems in the past. I am not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, and any help would be appreciated.

I installed the new nvidia drivers and that also has not helped. I do not know what to do at this point. I think at this point I would classify it as a stutter. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
