As the title states, my computer has been freezing occasionally with that very horrific noise that's actually hurtful to listen to. It never makes it onto a BSOD screen either, so I'm unsure if it creates a dump or not. It happens maybe once a month, but it sounds like it would be serious, so I'm worried. The noise itself from what I can tell isn't coming from any of the components, but it's being sent through the audio lines as I can hear it through my headset, or if I unplug them it can be heard through my speakers as well.
All except 2 occurrences were while I was watching a web stream on one monitor, and playing a game on the other. The last two were while just playing a game. The first thing I looked into was freezing caused by Flash Player, and it seemed there was a major service pack that I hadn't applied, so I downloaded and installed that, but the occurrences are very spread out so I wasn't sure if it was fixed or not, only to have it happen again recently.
My setup is the following,
Intel i5 84W Quad Core : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116898
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128594
Rosewill 750W PSU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182073
GTX 750 Ti GPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121855
I already ran window's ramcheck utility, although I don't trust it, no errors detected. The ram was unopened from a computer bought over a year ago so that's the only thing I don't have a warranty for nor do I know the product number or brand.
