    Hey, maybe once in every 5 or so hours of playing, my wii will randomly freeze and emit a loud buzzing sound. The only thing I can do is hold the power button on the console until it shuts down. Any idea what the causes of this might be? If you need any more info from me, let me know and I'll find out what I can.

    What system menu are you on and are you playing backed up games or originals?

    Playing from a hard drive. I'm on 4.2U. I'm using Configurable USB Loader v60, but I doubt it matters which loader I'm using.

    check if there is a sleep timer on your hard drive. If so, disable it.

    does it freeze regardless of what game u are playing? Or is it just one problematic game u have?

    It's just any random game. It's not a specific point or anything. Like, I played the new 007 game for a half hour last night and it froze. Started it back up and it played for a couple hours until I turned it off. It just does it randomly regardless of which game I'm playing. I don't know if there's a sleep timer, but I'm guessing that's not it since it doesn't seem to happen after a specific amount of time. What would I need to do check that?

    it depends on what hard drive u have. Generally the drives are sold with proprietary software that u can use to enable or disable sleep timers and much more.

    I honestly don't know, the only time I ever use my retail disks anymore is when I pop 'em in the Wii to rip them. Before I modded my wii, though, I don't ever recall this happening.

    It's your drives fault for sure. Get a new one. Get it exchanged like I did. Same problem happened to me!
    Make sure you still have the receipt! Exchange it for a better one! (I got a Samsung Story 1TB)

    Does it freeze when it's loading something, or just randomly?

    It's not specific to loading screens, if that's what you mean. The last time it happened was when I was running around in a level.

    It could be your HDD, like many persons have pointed out, maybe your Wii got over heating, there's too much heat where you live?
