Freeze And Buzzing Sound While Gaming


i have been having a problem since i have upgraded to windows 7. the problem only happens during gameplay also it doesn't happen when your in the lobby or something like that either. during gameplay the screen with freeze and a buzzing noise will occur. it happens for 1-5 seconds. it seems like its someone running on a bad Internet connection and they disconnect every couple minutes. it happens on every video game not just one. ive tested this on left 4 dead 2 and alliance of valiant arms.

note- started after upgrade not on vista i have made tweaks to the system after it started happening to try to fix it such as turning off the 200 useless processes and some registry tweaks to make the system run faster..

Freezing And Buzzing From Monitor During Gaming?
Graphics card(SAPPHIRE 7950 3GB with Boost) does not indicate any error, it never gets above 50C, there are no artifacts, and it runs smooth as butter when it works(Hitman Absolution and Shogun total war 2).CPU doesn't overheat either, my NH-D14 keeps it(3930k) cool at below 50C at all times.

Fixes already tried:

Changing SATA cable on SSD
Reseating GPU/Power connections
reinstalling drivers/installing new drivers
updating BIOS
underclocking GPU.

There are no bluescreens, error codes, or anything of that sort, it freezes the frame and a loud buzzing comes from the monitor.Games are all installed on the SSD(Intel 520 Cherryville 180GB)Games ran through Steam new build, used less than 5 hours, max.After turning off the computer for a period of time, it'll let me play for 20-ish minutes, but then trying to reboot and play again results in near instant crash(2-5 minutes of play).

Netflix Causes Computer To Freeze, Popping And Buzzing Noises?
For the last week or so, I have been unable to watch Netflix videos without constant freezing and the sound popping and buzzing (after a minute or two it continues playing). I'm not sure whether or not this started before or after I uninstalled/reinstalled my internet drivers, (midterms stopped my video viewing cold) but they shouldn't be related, should they? Sometimes after this error, I get a popup message that says my NVIDA graphics card stopped working. (I havent been able to capture the exact wording.) I was going to try un/reinstalling the graphics card, but when I went to, I found I wasn't sure what to do. Do I do it to "NVIDIA GeForce G210M" under display adapters, or "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" under Sound, video and game controllers. In addition, "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" is actually listed 4 times in my device manager. Which one do I uninstall? Each one says that the best driver is already installed.

Random Screen Freeze While Gaming
I just brought a new pc with win 7 pre-installed. Systems goes very well and never have problem except when I gaming. The screen will randomly freeze and require a hard reset. I tried to reinstall the graphic driver several times but it doesn't help at all. [code]

Freezing Accompanied By Buzzing Sound?
I was playing a game called Symphony, and my computer froze, accompanied by a buzzing sound coming from the speakers. Here is some useful information though, as to why this might have happened.

1. My hard drive was 15% fragmented, with only 20gb available on the hard drive... Less than ten percent of capacity.

2. My computer does not have the greatest processor in the world, and I think the game might be demanding a bit more than what my computer actually has. I believe I was playing on a high setting.

3. My computer has never had any overheating issue, so i do not think it is/was an overheating issue. I tried to recreate the issue, for about an hour, and it never froze again.

So can any of the three things I listed be the cause of the freeze? Could it just have been a blip, and my computer missed a piece of data while processing, causing it to freeze? What does a freeze, accompanied by a buzzing sound mean?

Random Freezing With Buzzing Sound From Speakers?
Mostly when I play games, or use my webcam or in screensaver mode my computer freezes and there's a strange buzzing static noise coming from my speakers and all that I can do is shut my computer down with hitting the back on/off button and reseting the whole comp. Sometimes, I can play games all day and nothing happens.[CODE]

Weird Buzzing Sound When Playing Game
Well i was playing a game i think it overheated im not sure cause its like over 100+ and i was playing games. Anyway there was a screen that was a bunch of colors i think mostly purple or pink but whatever. So i shut down my computer and when i turn it on it makes a buzzing noise for like a minute. I cleaned the inside of the computer all the dust out from the fans and all that but it still makes the sound. Also after the buzzing sound it turns off then back on then a light buzzing sound for a bout 4 or 5 mins then i think its gone. Its either that or because i turn on my modem then turn on my computer a second later.(i dont usually do that).

Dead Freezes, Makes Buzzing Sound
About half hour/hour into my online game of L4D on VS mode my game freezes up and makes a constant buzzing sound? And I have to manually hold the power button on the comp to reboot and during boot it asks to start windows normally or last known good config.

Anyone have any trouble like this? running 64bit Windows 7 build 7600 with 8800GT 512. I'm thinking its a driver issue? I forgot how to check which Nvidia driver I have..

Buzzing Sound When Playing Games On Fullscreen?
And not just fullscreen. Saaaay... Farm Frenzy? Or any other game. Computer makes a buzzing noise on EVERY game I play when it loads something from the game. It's not from the speakers, it's from the computer itself. What's the catch?

Buzzing Sound And Studdering When Watching Video
I suppose it is some piece of hardware let me tell you a few things about my machine that I am curious could be the culprit. [code] One hard drive seems to suddenly not be working.I'm wondering if it could be all the hard drives? Or because there are 3 monitors? I did get a USB buffer over run error once trying to turn on the computer on the USB.I simply unplugged a device.

Routine Crashing With Buzzing Sound When Playing Video Games
I apologize in advance if my post is missing any information; I attempted to follow the directions for properly posting but while I'm am computer functional, I'm not overly computer literate. [code] The system constantly crashes when playing video games and games consistently lag. We have completely re-installed the OS and replaced all parts in the PC at least twice. When the system crashes the speakers buzz loudly, although sometimes it sounds like it's coming from the computer itself.We switched from Nvidia because everything has checked out and it was hoped that the problem was the hardware not playing nice to no avail. I'm still getting the same error/crash.

Windows 7 Laptop SLOW, Occasional Buzzing Sound, Blue-screen?
recently I found that my computer running Windows 7 Home Premium is becoming slower. And the annoying thing is that, when my computer plays music or video, the audio occasionally becomes the BUZZ sound, with the discrete "jumping" of mouse cursor if it's moving.Once when the issue was bad, a Bluescreen occured with an infinitely repeating noise (buzzing again and again), and the screenshot of the Bluescreen is uploaded.

Some specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium on Laptop Dell V130
2G RAM, (usually 85% is used);
CPU: i3 @ 1.30GHz
Processes: 81 (as currently - too many?)
Services started: ~80

Movie Maker Windows Essential Installed - Buzzing Sound And Lag On Computer
i tried to download the movie make windows essential from ms website, after the installation, i have noticed that my computer now start to lag (that's right, the whole os is lagging, not in game, or when doing particular things, just lag whenever) and there's a buzzing sound accompany with it if i am playing a Internet video. i was monitoring my task manager and i notice that every lag the cpu usage would get spike up by a bit. the reason why i suspect it is a virus is because when i restart my computer, there's an option that tells me to force restart or close the following programs, but there were no program on the list, just the two options "force restart" and "cancel" what is even more weird is that it doesn't seem to act up anymore after i stopped the avira virus scan, but my computer were being slowed after restart.

BSOD When Playing Counter Strike Global Offensive - Constant Buzzing Sound
In the last hour I've experienced 3 BSODs, all of which happened after installing a new version of the audio driver (which I did after removing the old version using an official utility), and two of which happened when playing CS:GO. The first one happened outside any game, so it could be a coincidence and may not be related to CS:GO. I'm attaching the SF Tool results and the CPU Z screenshots as instructed in the sticky.I re-launched CS:GO and played for some minutes and got another BSOD. I set Windows to not restart when a BSOD appears, and noticed there's a constant buzzing sound, so this is definitely audio-driver related, but I did use the official utility to uninstall the old one and I did install the latest one instead, so what else can I do?

Looping Last Sound When Gaming?
My laptop specs are:

Dell XPS L502x
Intel I7
Intel HD Graphics Family
Nividia Geforce GT 540m
Realtek High Defintion Audio

whenever I game, eventually and randomly, my game will freeze and loop the last sound. I'm not even kidding, it loops the last like half second of a sound which is extremely annoying no matter what it is because it just sounds like a loud thud going on forever. I have to reboot every single time this happens and I think it's hurting my laptop.So many said my laptop may be overheating, so I got a program called SpeedFan, and tweaked it so the temperature offset would be negative which would make my laptop cooler. According to it, it did go cooler with the setttings before/after using the program.The left side still emits heat, but not that hot with the program?

So I was watching the temperatures, before using the program, the temperature was always around 150-170 degrees farenheit, afterwards, it said it was at like -something which the air seemed be cooler or at least the offset measure.I'm not sure if my laptop is overheating, but when I took out the piece on the bottom pinned by 3 screws, there wasn't much dust inside.This all started when I had updated my Nvidia Drivers, I really regret doing this. So stupid game GTA IV can't detect system specs, so you had to use special commands for it to realize what specs you have. If I could, I'd sue them for screwing up my laptop. Everyone told me to update my drivers.Previously, I could play games like Deus Ex Human Revolution fine,I played the entire game twice with not a single freeze and looping sound/crash. Fine.after I installed any of the new nvidia drivers from their website?Occasional freezes and looping the last sound played.It seems that when I had bought this prebuilt Dell Laptop, it had epic drivers for itself and I was never suppose to update the perfect drivers.Then, everything was messed up once I updated my nvidia driver....Maybe, incompatible with the version of my realtek hd audio, that's why i installed all the old drivers from the driver disk the laptop came with. still didn't work, they had corrupted drivers too, or something.So I honestly don't know what to do. I remember a few months ago, I tried downloading a realtek hd audio driver, wow i lost sound for 3 days straight, no one on the internet knew and kept on insisting to install other drivers when I had to type 2 lines in the command prompt.

Gaming Sound Card
I am looking for a good gaming sound card to replace XtremeGamer by Creative Labs. Since upgrading to this newer build of Windows 7 I can't get the driver to work and it never really worked right anyway. The beta driver or the Vista ones in compatibility mode. Daniel K people also said to try, they didn't work either. Always will freeze the computer and then I will have to go into Safe Mode and remove the driver to be able to boot again. So any ideas for a good card? What about the Razer Barracuda AC-1 Gaming Audio Card? Will it work with Windows 7?

Sound Goes Off Suddenly While Gaming
I have a PC with Windows 7 64 bit as the primary and only OS. Lately a strange audio problem has come up. The sound goes off suddenly while gaming. The only solution then is to restart the PC for the audio to return. Am having a discrete audio card (Asus Xonar Essence STX). I have tried all the driver tricks (updating, uninstall-ing & reinstall-ing) to no avail.

Sound Suddenly Stops During Gaming
I think that Windows might be disabling my sound device during gaming because it thinks it is idle. I don't know if this is the exact reason but after much testing have come to this conclusion.

Anyway, the problem is that while playing some games (for example Borderlands, Civ 5) the sound will be fine but after a while playing the sound will cut off completely. It seems to occur when I am playing a game for more than an hour although I can't be very specific. If I exit the game and try to play an MP3 etc in WMP then the program just behaves like it's trying to do something in the background and won't actually play the file. There are no system sounds or any other sound at all.

This doesn't happen in all games, for example, when I play Audiosurf then the sound plays as normal no matter how long I play. This is why I think it may be a Windows issue thinking my sound card is idle and then turning it off because when I play Audiosurf, the game plays my MP3 files and so presumably Windows knows my sound card is in use but when I play any other game that just uses the game's own sound files/effects, then Windows isn't recognising this and after a certain period of time is then disabling my sound card.

Does anyone know of a solution for this or has come across something similar? I have an external sound card that is connected via USB (Line 6 Toneport UX2). Let me know if you require any more system specs, oh I'm using Win 7 HP 64bit btw.

Please can someone help me with this as it's driving me mad and when gaming online and chatting to my friend through Skype, the sound will suddenly just go off. While he can still hear me talking into the mic, I can't hear him or the game's sounds/music and he has to resort to typing me messages in-game.

7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset?
my laptop doesn't have the sound card to provide 7.1 surround sound, it does however have Dolby Surround Sound, so I was thinking if I purchased a 7.1 surround sound headset, how can I configure each speakers on it? Since currently the only audio channel I have is Stereo.The headset is plugged in by USB, so it must act like a sound card on its own, if I plug in the USB headset, will it provide me another audio channel for 7.1?

Sound Stutters Resulting Windows 7 Computer To Freeze
I've installed Win 7 Ultimate x86. The problem I'm facing is that whenever I enable my sound card driver and try playing an audio, the audio stutters and the computer freezes. I have to restart, use safe mode to disable the sound card and then use my pc. I've looked all over the net for solutions and these are what I have done so far...

- Downloaded and installed codecs for High Definition Audio Device
- Downloaded and installed Windows 7 x86 compatible driver for my sound card (Creative SB Audigy Value).
- Disabled all audio enhancements
- Changed playback sound to come through speakers (this one automatically happens if I re-enable the sound card).

The problem still persists.

Video Freeze On Playback, Sound Skipping And Cracking
- graphic drivers (not in my case, U can always check if it helps in yours)

- high performance power profile (from this forum's tutorials: Power Plan - Select | Power Plan Settings - Change)

- installing different codecs/vid player

- PCI-E x1 bug <- a real pain in the ass, caused most of the problems; Ill explain how to solve it in a minute

- Comodo Firewall/Internet Security for x64 systems (for some users disabling the Image Execution and unticking Detect Shellcode injections worked) - still a not resolved bug LINK 1 LINK2
- interrupt conflict with other hardware (try to disable in BIOS setup your WiFi adapter / COM port this helped a couple of people)

Skipping and shuttering sound on all my sources (Audigy (with kx v.3550 drivers) and AD SoundMax integrated with MB) was also caused by the PCI-E bug, which was a real surprise for me, especially in the case of Audigy which is an old PCI card.

Buzzing Noise When Volume Max?
I'm getting a very irritating high pitch, low volume, buzzing noise when my speakers volume is at max, even if my system volume is 0. The only way to get rid of this is to of course, lower my speaker volume, but the buzzing is still there just quieter.
