Hi, I just finished building my new computer a few days ago. I'm still in the process of loading everything on, but it's already giving me a little bit of trouble. I think it's only done this three times, but thats enough for me to see it as a problem. Here's what happens: The computer will freeze and repeat a millisecond of whatever audio it's playing, giving a nice buzzzzz sound. The weird thing is, after about 5-10 seconds of that, it will continue normally for about a second, and freeze up again for another 5-10 seconds. When it continues normally, the mouse will move, until it freezes again. If I move the mouse rapidly while it's "frozen", it will carry out that action when it unfreezes for a second, as if the command is being acknowledged and is just backed up. Sounds like something's using all my CPU for some reason? It happened the first time while I was listening to iTunes and installing my Panda Antivirus software. The second time I'm not sure what I was doing, but it didn't do that continuing thing, it simply froze and stayed like that (while repeating the playing audio). The latest time, I began playing a video on Vimeo and full-screened it. It froze on the audio, so I pressed Esc, and when it snapped out of it for a sec, it got out of full-screen, but it just froze and unfroze for a few minutes until I shut it down. I wish I could see what was eating my CPU when this happens, but the computer isn't functional for enough time for me to call up Task Manager.
Let me know if you have any ideas or need any information! My comp specs should be in my info.
