Recently my computer has been freezing at random times and a buzzing sound is emmiting from my speakers.


I haven't found a cause for this, sometimes it happens when I'm watching videos and sometimes it happens when I'm playing games,


I will attach a copy of my DxDiag log here.


Please help me!


Thanks in advance,

With regards to the buzzing, I have come across the odd video where this happens, and my usual cure has been to stop it and restart it.


As for the freezing, you say 'recently'. How recently ? If it is a matter of a week or two, I would suggest trying restoring your Windows using a restore point that dated from before this problem occurred. Be aware that if you do this, you will have all the updates to redo from that date, and as it is possible that one of them triggered the problem, re-install them one at a time.


If the buzzing is associated with the freezing, and the wording of your post does not make this clear, then I wouldn't worry about it.

This happens to me as well. when playing WoW. It's my nvidia kernel crashing. I even get the buzzing sound. Much like the bsod for the video card. No amount of updates is fixing it but running with directx 9 as opposed to dx11 in the game lowers the amount of failures. I use an nvidia gtx 560 ti.
