HP Pavilion Gaming - TG01-1020
Microsoft Windows 11

I have been using this computer for video games, and have had this computer for about 2 and 1/2 years. For a good 2 years my computer has been running perfectly fine, but recently it has been freezing and making this really  annoying buzzing sound. I am not sure why this is happening, my computer is needed to be force reset to go back to windows. The games I am playing are games like rocket league and valorant. Some things on the internet advise to restart my computer, or check my GPU and CPU temperatures, these two things are perfectly fine. I have just factory reset my computer and it still freezes and makes the buzzing sound. Has anybody had this issue? I was thinking about buying as new computer, but this one is pretty new. I need trouble shooting problem solvers.

@John19771,

 

Based on my experience, resolving this issue could be as simple as removing your RAM sticks, cleaning the RAM slots with compressed air, and reseating them properly.  And since you are at it, blow out all the dust from every nook and cranny inside your chassis and make sure every cable connection and all computer components are securely plugged in -but you probably already tried this.


So, another possible cause of loud buzzing noises could be a defective power supply or (less likely) power supply fan.

 

Please look at the freezing & buzzing troubleshooting suggestions in this link too: Troubleshoot Computer freezing issue in Windows - Your Windows Guide.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,
