Hello new here, not sure if i'm in the right thread.

I've had my PC for quite a few years now. This happens sometimes; when I'm gaming halfway, the screen freezes and also my audio goes haywire and produces a crazy static noise. I've followed guides to check my PC and it was ok for the period and recently it came back.
Anyone knows what I did/didn't do? Thanks

Do you use ssd ? And if not is your hdd healthy?
I used to get freeze problems because my hdd was "dying".
I changed to ssd and all my problems are gone.
What's your temperatures when gaming ?

U can try a disk defragment on ur hdd(takes long to defragment tho) and u can also run a disk check.
Right click on ur hdd properties/tools and click on check.
Personally I monitored my disk when the freezes happened(my hdd was hiting 100%). My pc didn't crash tho so I was able to.
I tried moving games to ssd instead of hdd and I had no problems so It seemed my hdd was "faulty".

If I'm not wrong, I did a disk fragment the previous time I was checking on my computer already. May I'll do a disk check again.
Maybe HDD overload? haha

Did u move it on ssd? And did it help ?
I don't know about overloads. But I'm not buying hdd ever again. I'm done with these. Ssd is cheap nowdays,way faster and it doesn't create problems like freezes.

I shifted it over already, but I haven't tried playing yet. I'll report here again if the same problem persists.
Hmm, aren't SSDs quite expensive though?

Okay hope it solved it.
Well I got my 240gb for 28 euro. And I don't think I need more space than that. I have one 120gb for Windows and one 240gb for other stuff.
They go around that price range.
