    Hello I just joined this forum in desperate need of help, been searching the net for days without any help :/

    So the problem is my friend brought me her laptop ( used to be my old one ) an MSI GT780DX that I installed windows 8.1 on I been trying to fix it for weeks now, It randomly hangs while making a static noise from the speakers, sometimes it does it before I log in other times it happens after days of gaming, I tried formatting the computer and reinstalling windows 8.1, I tried switching out the ram, I also tried switching the hard disk, but nothing seems to help, I'm not that tech savvy, but I know how to get information and use it, currently studying IT Support, but this computer keeps failing on me, I think it might be worth mentioning that this computer has been split 3-4 times with everything disconeccted and reconeccted, please help me getting desperate :/

    Ok, thanks for explaining.

    Have you installed all the drivers from MSI ? Any yellow ! or ? characters in Device Manager ?

    If you removed the heatsink from the Cpu have you installed new thermal compound ?

    Can you check the temperatures ? You can use HWMonitor free for it :- http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
    Scroll down that webpage and use one of the purple download buttons on the left.

    If that is impractical see if you can quickly get into the Bios when it shuts down and read the temps in there.

    The only similar sound problem I've seen (heard?) was caused by heat damage.

    Hi, I can't see anything to worry about in the info you posted.

    EDIT : I'll have a think and get back to you.

    Next time it hangs, unplug the power supply. If the static noise stops, you have a short in the region of the power socket on the mobo or the power supply is failing. If static noise persists, I'll show myself out.

    P.S. Try running it with the sound input/output board removed.
