Ok so just early January all of the sudden my computer would freeze while I was playing a game. All I could do was hard restart. When it freezes there would just be this zzzzzzzzz noise coming from computer like the sound got stuck.
I am not overheating, during gameplay my CPU would stay between 65-75 C and my GPU is pretty steady at 65 C.
I believe my drivers are all up to date... This only happens during gaming too. Any other use of my computer (netflix, youtube, other videos, music, etc...) is just fine. Even in full screen I have not had an issue. Originally i thought it had something to do with a janky driver so i switched the games from full screen to windowed. That "seemed" to solve the problem. I had weeks of no problems at all. Then just today a freeze occurred in my windowed game! My event log is showing no message of actual use... just that my computer shut down improperly. I don't get BSOD's or anything, just a freeze.
I am worried it could be my PSU... but I don't know how to test it. I am not really interested in buying some silly tester somewhere, tearing open my laptop, and trying to test it...
Here is a speccy: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/I6KSIxZuwDVnPA5MkSR5iIa
Any suggestions would be amazing! I know the hard resets are not good for computer so I am worried about playing games and having this continue. Maybe it is a new driver that is buggy? Who knows... I can't find anything.
EDIT: Just finished the DiskChecker Disk self test tool (the full check one) and had no problems. My numbers all seemed pretty good as well under the SMART information, so I am ruling out overheating and hard disk.
