I've had some help with this problem before, but it persists.
I'm on a 6 year old laptop that I use for small tasks, and it has this issue where once every so often (about once a day, or more), everything just stops in it's tracks!
What I mean by this is, the screen freezes, I cannot move my mouse, I get a "frozen audio" sound, as if a little blip of sound is repeating like a full auto BB gun. The only way to return to normal is to do a force shutdown.
This can get hectic when I'm working on a school project, or anything of that sort.
What I have already done:
- Ran SeaTools for Seagate HDD. Failed first attempt. After repair, passed the last two tests.
- Ran Memtest86 for 6 passes last night with no errors.
- Ran updated anti-malware and antivirus programs on full scans, with no bad results.
Here are my Memtest86 results.
What else could possible be wrong here? Should I format my hard drive?
Thank you for your help,
