    I first posted this on games but the more I think about it I believ it may be a failing video card. Any thoughts??


    OK, this has been going on sporadically for several months now. It is extremely frustrating. I will be playing World of Warcraft (which I have done for 2 years now on this same machine with no issues) and my computer will completely freeze. When this occurs I get a buzzing sound (coming from the speakers) and the computer freezes. This sound varies in amplitude from occurence to occurence, but never in pitch. The only way to recover is to turn the computer off and reboot. The problem apears to be completely random and I have shut off all non essential processes (I think) and the problem still occurs. I have run hijack this and all sorts of anti-spyware / virus checks and the system appears to be clean. This is the only problem I ever have with this computer. I have the latest drivers for my video card and have latest version of direct x. I have looked at event viewer after this crash and there appears to be this error msg:
