    Hello guys i have some really weird problem with my laptop pc... i know most of peoples will not believe to this couse its really strange first time in my life i seen or heard about something like this....

    So the problem is - PC freezes on some specific or loud sounds near to the pc... what the hell yea?
    For example if somebody starts scream in the room like childs for example pc imediatly freezes... or when im having a cigarete next to the pc its freezes from lighters sound... every time when i lightening a lighter this clicking sound freezes a pc... i tried it obout 100 times so its definitely a reason why its freezes... im totaly shocked about this problem... anybody ever heard about it and there is some reasons or solutions for this?

    P.S Sorry for my English it`s not very good...

    With best regards...

    I uploaded a video to show that this problem is real :)

    Perhaps its a sensitive pc and needs some counselling.

    It sounds like something's loose inside and the vibrations make it freeze.

    Thanks for your reply...

    Hmm no i dont think that loose connections is the problem becouse i tested a lot of different sounds... louder or the same like from lighter... for example hands claping... it freezes only on some types of screams and every time on lighter sound.... this one is so strange that im getting sick of it already...

    I think you should make a video of that......


    And you say it freezes and how do you get out of the freeze?

    Yeah im thinking about making video today as well...

    Only way how to get out from it is with hard restart by keeping power on button pressed till pc turns off...
    when its freezes nothing works... no mause or any key combinations... nothing

    Nothing... thats why im sure that this is not a problem with loose connection... i can shake it, jiggle, even beat it and all working like a charm... only from this sounds its freezing... and i dont think even it`s some software prank... becouse it`s freezes from this sounds even on logon screen before loging in to the windows...

    You tell us what you have named the video then it would be the person choice to take a look.

    OK watched the video and that is really weird......you can post the link to it in your next post as other people would be interested I would think.

    Try this Start the PC in Safemode..start tapping F8 on startup and choose safemode and see if the lighter trick works in Safemode too

    So this didn't do this before and do you remember anything you downloaded or changed just before this happened?
