Recently, I got into PSO2 and during gameplay, my PC will freeze with looping audio (buzzing sound) and I am forced to hard shut-down my PC. I've encountered this before with Fallout 76 and assumed it was just the game. I've not encountered this issue with any other game I have played. I've tried reinstalling my GPU drivers, running the memory diagnostics tool, checking for Windows updates and monitoring my temperatures. Everything seems to be in order, so I'm at a complete loss as to what could be the problem. I am not overclocking. There is no BSOD. Just frozen displays. Any idea what else I could check?

Specs please. Looks like it's your gpu driver. Look in the event viewer when this happens
B450M PRO-M2
Ryzen 5 2600
RX 5500 XT
860 EVO (Win and games)
ST500DM002 (Junk)

The only things in the Event Viewer prior to the freezes are warnings related to Windows Hello and networking. I played for a few hours, this morning, waiting for another freeze but one did not happen. It happens randomly. Sometimes after 15 minutes, sometimes after multiple hours.
