At random intervals no matter what program is open. Windows will freeze up. If listening to any sounds/music the output will become quite distorted upon freezing. Facebook notification sound becomes very elongated and distorted if Facebook is open. speedfan reports CPU at 30 prior to freeze and around 50-60 (in red) after freeze is over. freezing can last anywhere from a minute to 30 minutes


please help

My guess is that there's a heat problem. It may not be the CPU, it could be the power supply.

Have you cleaned the box lately? are all of the connections tight and correct. How old is this hardware configuration?

Keep us posted
