Complete System diagnosticIncluded in Isolation Zone
Motherboard (mini): Most likely reason for causing static sound due to the primary evidence of Static Background Sound emitting from External speaker system (Logitech) only when directly plugged into motherboard itself (green audio socket). When diagnosed through a HDMI speaker interface (Internal speaker system; Samsung TV), no signs of static background noise present however System Freeze still prominent throughout testing.
Power Supply Unit: Replacement undertaken but no difference, same results of freeze and static sound
Ram: Tested both ram sticks together and separately, system freeze still occuring.
Excluded from Isolation Zone
Hard drive: Displays no signs towards freezing (sata and power cable inserted correctly) even after replacement.
Graphical Processing Unit: Shows no likeliness towards freezing and/or static sound after replacement and latest driver installation.
Also, the freezing is still present in safe mode which gives more of a hardware problem feel.
