Hi,

My mate has a PC that randomly freezes for a few seconds or so, he plays games but it can happen in and out of games, the mouse & keyboard stop working, the screen freezes and sometimes but not always the audio stops playing and he gets like a screeching noise, other times the audio continues normally with everything else frozen. It lasts a for a few seconds each time then the PC goes back to working normally again

I went and had a look last week and updated all drivers, BIOS, Windows updates to see if that helped but it is still doing it. It did it once while I was there and I had a look through event viewer but couldnt see anything obvious or different occuring at that time.

Any suggestions what could be causing this?
Is there a better windows log program I can install that will provide some better clues than Event Viewer as to what is going on?

Thanks
