So I know no one can help me with this, I just thought I post this to vent my frustration. Over the past week my PC is randomly freezing up. The sound keeps looping and nothing works so I have to do a hard reset. I installed a fresh Windows two days ago hoping it would go away but it did not help. Here is what I have done so far: -I checked the integrity of my ram, no errors. -I ran Uniengine Heaven benchmark for 15 minutes while monitoring the temperature for my VGA and CPU. Nothing out of the ordinary (CPU hovers around 65, VGA, a R280X, around 65-70). I get the freeze at random during games, and few times while I was watching a movie and only during fast forwarding as far as I can tell. I have the debug files if anyone can actually analyse them. One thing that I should mention in that I have had problems with windows updater. Everytime I run the update diagnosis tool it gives this: I have done everything I could think of and I was advised to do so but nothing, I still get random freezes. It has become to frustrating that I am thinking about getting rid of my PC and be done with it. . The only thing I can think of to try if installing Win 7 to see if that helps, but I am not holding my breath.
