Hello All,

I am having a very strange problem with my laptop where it would start making a buzzing sound whenever I am watching video or running flash related items on my browser (Google Chrome). It starts to freeze and sometimes would make either a buzzing sound or freeze for about 10-15 seconds with a loud high pitch "beep".

-Could this be a hardware or flash-related problem? I am also running on a dual-core so I understand that Chrome takes a beating out of it every time. Any help may be appreciated and here is a embedded video provided underneath.

Hi there!

Yeah, I've tried Safari yesterday and had a couple of freezes whenever flash was involved.

As for extensions for Chrome, I only have the Google Docs plugin installed that is required to access Google Drive. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash, Java, and Chrome but the problem still exists. Could this be a hardware-related issue with the videocard?
