    Hey All,

    I woke up this morning only to find that if I played a game, my PC would just freeze up.
    With no warning, it'll make a stuttery, bleeping noise, then just lock on the screen.

    As far as I'm aware, there is NO way to escape this. Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't work or Windows+D.
    I have to manually reboot the computer.

    I've tried downloading new ATI drivers and lowering the power my card uses - but to no avail.

    I'm a big gamer, and for Christmas, this is a big let down.

    Any help will be much appreciated, and if you need any more information don't hesitate to ask.

    Thanks!
    The Cat :cool:

    Just to update:

    I watched a video, and the same thing happened.
    Me thinks it might have something to do with the sound drivers.

    I'm running software to update my drivers, and Audio and Display need to be updated.
    Fingers crossed this might work.
