    I have recently bought a new computer around about October time. And, I've been using it since and I have had no problems at all. (Sorry if I'm posting to the wrong category by accident, never used these forums before.) Yet, all of a sudden after Christmas when watching a Youtube video through my headphones I heard a buzzing noise which only lasted for a moment but, in that moment by computer froze for a brief period of time. My first thought was that it was a one off and I went on with what I was doing as normal. Then, it happened again. So, I unplugged my headphones and tried to continue with what I was doing, but through my default speackers it happened yet again. Now, the time between these moments of static was growing shorter and shorter every time it happened which lead me to think that perhaps it wasn't a one off.

    So, I tried restrating my PC with little or no faith that would clear to problem. I was right, it didn't. After much searching on the internet a forum I had all kinds of people suggest to me all kinds of different possibilities of what could be causing the problem. At first I was led to believe that it was a problem with Flash Player. However, after experiencing the same problems while playing a Java based game (minecraft) I found that this was no the case. Now, what I then did was updated the BIOS. And I double checked to see if all my drivers were updated, they were. After yet more searching another auggestion I came acorss was a problem with the Realtek HD Audio drivers. In which case I don't know how I should fix said problem. My computer info is as follows:

    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU 987 @ 1.50GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 3889 Mb
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics, 1816 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 463308 MB, Free - 415603 MB;
    Motherboard: Acer, Aspire V5-431
    Antivirus: McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, Updated and Enabled

    After trying so many different options I am forced to ask for help on this matter. Though I should warn you, I am a complete novice when it comes to computing so no jargon please.

    Okey, thanks. It seems to have worked, so far no issues. Thank's for the help. I've waited a few days to make sure the problem is gone but so far, everything is working as it was before. Nice.
