    I'm not sure if the OS is the problem, as my parents computer runs windows 7 (same version I have) and never experianced the problem that I know of.

    I've had my computer for about 2 weeks, (friend helped me build it). In that time it's frozen about 5 times, twice in one day, and 3 in the past 2 days. It's an ENTIRE computer freeze, nothing responds beyond the restart button/power button. Once it restarts it's fine, until it happens again.

    Music/sound has been playing each time, short of one time, and when it freezes it loops the current noise with an area of about 0.5 ish seconds of the track, sometimes a little more by the sound of it. If I turn off the speakers/turn it out/up it reacts, so I know it's just because it froze that the sound is looping constantly usually creating a loud buzzer noise.

    I've been having some graphics problems as well, but I ran a downgraded version update and it's still happening. (Not that it's related, just something I tried for another reason and the freezing continued). It doesn't look like it's triggered by anything specific since i've been doing different things each time it happened.

    Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    I've got 5+ fans running, 3 on the edges and cpu/graphics card fan running, as well as a CPU cooling system. I also ran a diagnostics while running my computer for a day and it didn't pick up anything even 50% of what they can handle. Yes I've got a graphics card it's a 4000 serise HD extreme Radeon ATI card. So i'm sure it can't be an overheating issue.

    One of the times it happened within the same hour, happened - restarted - did some stuff - froze again. It's not affecting anything outright, it just shouldn't be happening. At worst I can always check out the problems once I pay off some debt with a local computer place that does check ups. Though for a 2 week old computer.... D:
