Okay, my PC has had this weird issue for a while now and I'm not sure what the cause of it is.|
Basically, whenever I use media (Games, Music or video) my computer seems to play up. For example, if someone in a video says the word "the" and my computer randomly starts acting up, the video will freeze and the sound will say the word "the" like this: ttttthhhhhhheeeeeeeee. The mouse and keyboard become unresponsive too. After a few minutes though, my computer will just start working again like nothing happened.
I thought it might be my graphics card, so I switched from a GeForce to a Radeon. Didn't work. Same issue. I thought it might be a virus, but nope, re-installing the OS; didn't work.
I'm running Windows 7 64 bit
8GB DDR5 Ram
Intel I3 core

Did you check for vortexs and black holes...
I did think that, but seems really risky
Hmm...maybe. The problem is of course, I can't just replace it unless I'm sure. I haven't had any other issues with it mind...
Same story playing media via a USB stick?
Hm...I try that. I'm just installing a small game to a USB. See how it does.
So far so good. Online videos working via firefox installed to the stick, game going without a issue.
If that's all it is, I'm not too bothered. These things don't really cost that much compared to graphic cards etc. phew! Thanks a lot

No probs, just a shame I didnt get to use the "have you tried turning it off and then on again" line.

I've had unstable builds go into s...l..o..w.MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and then bluescreen before. This machine used to do it a lot before I changed OS.
