Thanks for reading. I recently built my first computer after my old one met a slow death several months ago. Everything worked flawlessly for several days, until once while playing a video game, the screen suddenly froze. The sound from the game kept playing. There was no BSOD, I had to manually restart it. These crashes are random but now happening more frequently, sometimes hours after I start the computer, sometimes within fifteen minutes. One interesting characteristic of them is that if a video is playing, the sound will obviously stop because the video stops, but if a program like a video game is playing, whatever music track was playing will continue (such as the background music in Total War: Warhammer - frequently running during my crashes). Additionally, sometimes when restarting, the computer will beep three times, and shut down after a brief delay before restarting itself again. This is an alert regarding the RAM, correct?
I've looked around a little bit and while the most likely culprit is some issue with the RAM, I've seen some comments that make me think it could possibly be the PSU or video card as well. I'm about to run memtests, but wanted to post this first so that if anyone were willing, they could offer some assistance and/or suggestions. Thank you.
