Well sometimes every couple weeks I'll be on the internet and might try to load something with audio or it will just out of the blue; my computer will make a screeching noise that's sounds like a richter scale, and my computer will freeze and the volume (no matter where it is) its goes to a certain pitch. Why does it do that? And is it possible to fix it?

Does it sound like a noise coming from one of your fans (like a bad bearing)? If a fan seizes up it will cause overheating and will make your computer freeze. Remove the cover from your computer and try and isolate the sound the next time it happens.

Be careful you don't touch anything in there unless you touch the bare metal on the case first. Look around a see if there is a lot of dust. You have at least a fan in the power supply (in the back at the top) and one on the motherboard on the CPU. You might have one on your video card too.

Also make sure that the fans are unblocked from any dust.
