Hello, my issue is that my pc will randomly freeze and this happens completely randomly from playing a game or growing the internet. My audio will also buzz and repeat until the freeze is over or I have to shut down the computer.

I have tried:
reinstalling windows
running memory check
running a DDU and reinstalling GPU drivers and a bunch of other stuff


Reliability monitor returns an error along these lines:

The nvlddmkm. sys part makes me think a driver issue but I even get these issues with no GPU installed not to mention I ran a DDU.

I had my CPU and motherboard RMA'd a week after getting them so it may be an issue with them but these issues only began around December 2020. I don't want to RMA them again unless I absolutely have to because I use this computer for school.
