Hello,
My PC for quite a while now will sometimes crash with a very loud audio glitching noise and then it stops. At times, my keyboard will remain powered and monitors will stay on but frozen and others it will all completely switch off although the PC remains powered on.
It can happen from multiple times a day to not once. I believe there are no triggers to it crashing, it simply does it whenever it pleases.
Any help would be brilliant. Thanks

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Include PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition?

Look in Reliability History and Event Viewer for error codes or other entries that correspond with the audio noises and crashes.

= = = =

Power down, unplug, open the case.

Clean out dust and debris.

Verify by sight and feel that all connectors, cards, RAM, and jumpers are fully and firmly in place.

Could simply be that something is wiggling loose.
