So my computer started freezing randomly during video playback and just gets stuck with the sound also looping at a millisecond interval... Anyway I can repeat this error if I play any video full screen for a long enough time period. I did some research on this problem and found that it could be the RAM OR PSU... I used memTEST see if it could possibly be my RAM, But unfortunately do not know how to interpret the errors it gives out correctly, the results are attached. Someone please tell me what I should do if my results read as errors or not. All feedback is greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you.


SPECS:

Windows 7 - 64 bit
Intel core i7-2600k CPU @ 3.4 Ghz
16Gb RAM
1000 WATT PSU
2 DUAL Nvidea Geforce GTX 560's

Any errors...during the running of Memtest...is not a good thing.

Whether one or 500, it indicates a problem with the RAM functionality...there is nothing to interpret beyond that.
