Basically, whenever I play games or watch videos, I always run the chance of encountering this issue. When my computer works, it's great, but otherwise....

What happens is that my mouse freezes on screen & the sound suddenly starts sounding garbled, as if it were lowered several octaves. The video does continue as normal, but I have absolutely no control. At that point, mouse function is dead. I can still use keyboard functions. However, I can't seem to turn off my computer via the desktop or task manager. I end up manually shutting down or restarting the computer. I know it's a hardware issue since I only built the computer very recently.

Here are the specs.

AMD FX-8150
Windows 7 Home 64 bit
Corsair Force GT 120 GB SSD
ATX 520W PSU (Also cannibalized)
Cooler Master Elite Case

I already tried reinstalling my computer and reinstalled all the drivers. But the issue is still the same. Memtest did not turn up anything and I don't know any other hardware tests.
My gut is telling me that it's either my motherboard or the CPU, but I can't tell. It may be the PSU but the paper clip test proved otherwise.

I'm hoping I could get a list of diagnostic tests for faulty hardware to pinpoint which part I would have to replace and also to gain some tech insight while I'm at it.
