    Occasionally I will be watching a video or Netflix movie and sometimes it just stops streaming and makes a loud noise which continues until I have to manually shutdown the computer. I've even just tried closing the video or movie but it will not allow me - it just freezes accompanied with the loud noise.

    Is there something I can do to fix this occasional problem? :eek:

    It's possible that your computer is overheating and the loud noise you hear is the CPU fan revving up in an attempt to cool the CPU. Without knowing anything about your system it's impossible to say for sure.

    thank you for your reply but it's not the fan. When it freezes the loud noises are coming from what every was playing on the video when it froze..
