Twice now my computer has frozen, accompanied by a terrible, angry, buzzing/beeping noise through the speakers. It is my first build, and as such I'm not really educated enough to even make a guess as to what is causing it. It doesn't respond to any keyboard or mouse input and I end up needing to reset it. Here's what I've noticed:
- It has only happens when I am online
- It has only happens when a flash applet is running (once on chesscube.com, once on piq.codeus.net)
I know that might not mean anything, considering it's only happened twice, but I've put in like 20 hours on Steam and maybe 3 hours browsing online, so these crashes do seem connected with it. I've checked the temps and voltages after rebooting, and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Here's my build:
- intel i7 2600k
- p8p67 deluxe mobo
- gtx 570 superclocked
- ripjaw RAM
- 800W power supply
- CM 690 case
- Zahlman cpu fan
- hard drive, disk drive etc.
All my drivers are up to date.
For some reason, I don't know why, I suspect my graphics card. Does anybody have any insight as to what might be causing this?
EDIT: also it has only happened when I've not been using head phones, as I only use my monitor speakers when not gaming. Idk if that's important, but there it is.
