Hey,

So this started happening a few months ago on my computer that I built, but it stopped for awhile. Unfortunately it started up again. The problem is whenever I am playing a game sometimes the computer locks up and a strange fuzzy noise comes from the speakers. The weird thing is the game continues to run I just can't do anything and am forced to turn off the computer by holding the power button. It's an online game and I am still able to see people talking in chat and people around me doing stuff. So pretty much it freezes and loses sound and keyboard/mouse control. It use to only do this when I was playing a game but now it sometimes does it while booting up and freezes sometimes between the BIOS splash screen and getting to windows login. Based on the fact that after it freezes a game can still run normally with internet it seems like there could be a possible motherboard problem? Not sure. Also my drivers are all up to date. Below are my computer specs. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

By constant lock-up usually means a possible overheating problem so you might wanna check your hardware temps. from time to time. Did you check if any soundcard installed might be the culprit and using the onboard instead? How about lowering any audio settings?

Well I cleaned some dust out of the computer and it seems to be working fine now.

Good to hear that house cleaning did the trick for you. :)
