Lately my pc has been having freezes at seemingly random intervals. I game most of the time, but it's also frozen while simply browsing chrome. I don't think it's an overheating issue. I checked the temps and my gpu is fine. Cpu max is at 80C while gaming, 50C while idle, which is high, but should be ok. I've checked my RAM with the windows diagnostic and it's fine as well. There's no slowdown or anything prior to the freeze. PC is running normally, then immediately it freezes, and as mentioned there's usually a consistent buzz from the headphones. Pc noise doesn't change. I have to hard shutdown it at freeze.

Hi, did you try to reinstall the audio driver? Check in event viewer if it show something that crashed.
Do you have SSD or HDD?

I have an SSD. It's about 6 years old now. I checked it's 'health' a few months ago and it seemed to be fine. I'll try reinstalling the audio driver.

So in Event Viewer doesn't show anything suspicions ?
Not sure what to look for or what any of it means really. At the time of crash a lot of the errors relate to processes and applications preventing removal of ACPI\PNP0A08\0. No idea what that is.
