Hi,

My screen freezes for no apparent reason with a loud buzzing sound, can't move the mouse or do anything. I've already re installed sound and graphics drivers as suggested in other forums but it didn't fix the problem. I don't have a clue of how to get rid of this and i hope someone here is going to help me.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire V5-552G-8409

Specs:

_AMD A8-5557M Quad Core 2.10GHz 

_8GB DDR3 RAM

_500 GB HDD

_AMD Radeon HD 8750M 2GB VRAM

_Windows 8

 

Thanks for your time.

 

PS: it happens most of the time when i play a game or watch videos

Did you use a driver cleaning utility like Driver Sweeper to clean up the old drivers? Could just be a conflict from old stuff left behind.

 

Or it could be CPU or GPU temps, poorly seated power cables, failing power supply, poorly seated graphics card. Check everything is nice and snug, pull it off and stick it back on... everything on the mobo.

 

Have you tried removing your graphics card to see if it still occurs? This would be good to test also.
