Hi, I am not having this problem myself. My mate is and I'm trying to get it fixed for him. His PC will freeze and a whole bunch of lines will go through the screen flickering while a loud noise buzzes. I have heard it may be a memory problem but I want to be sure before I tell him to take ram sticks out. 


I have attached a few pictures that he sent me that might explain to you guys what is happening.

Sorry for the delay in responding, there's only a few people who help out in these forums.

Do you still need assistance?


This seems to be a video problem rather than a RAM problem.

The first thing to do is to check and see if there's dirt/dust clogging the system (if it's a laptop) and checking the video cooler if it's a desktop.


Presuming it's a laptop, use canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or a vacuum cleaner as they can damage the system) to blow out all the vents.

Also, be sure that the fan is working.


Next, monitor the temps using this free utility:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
Let us know the readings when the screen starts to have problems.


Finally, you can test a lot of the system with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Good luck!
