My computer has been randomly freezing and crashing since I built it a year ago. It used to happen every few days or so but I think that it has happened about 5 times today, so I am getting really annoyed.
Sometimes it just crashes like a random restart and doesn't give me an error message at all.
Sometimes (rarely) it gives me a BSOD (no driver problem line or anything)
Sometimes it just freezes and loops the last sound playing.
and sometimes, and this is the scariest, it freezes, loops the last sound a couple of times, and then the system speaker starts ringing. If you have ever played CS Source, it sounds almost exactly like a flashbang: A constant, high-pitched squeal. This has happened a few times overnight when only background programs were running, and it just happened for the first time while I was actually doing something on the computer.
Here are my specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+
Mainboard: Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
Memory: 2GB Corsair DDR2
HDD: Samsung 500GB 7200rpm 16mb cache
Video: eVGA NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT/GTO
Sound: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer
Power: Antec True Power 2.0 500W
The hard drive is new, because I thought the old one might be the cause of the crashes and I needed a new one anyways. It didn't change the frequency of the crashes, so I don't think that is the problem.
