Recently my HP Pavilion Dv7 has been having issues playing HD Videos online, my screen freezes and makes a sudden buzzing sound. On 5/21/2017 I ran a Windows diagnostic and discovered it was a ram issue. Now, this computer is 7 almost 8 years old, and has been running like new since I got it, and suddenly develops this ram issue. When I watch blurays on it (Bluray included) it runs fine, but go to youtube or anything else and it freezes and buzzes. I did get a BSOD that had a NTOSKernel but I fixed it with my USB install drive. My previous HP an old HP G6 from 2005 had issues with the HP Support assistant that resembled it. But mine is being considered an actual ram issue. If i run graphically intense programs for my graphics card it has issues, but when it comes to audio such as recording softare its fine.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Here are my computer specs
I has been working for 7 years without issues, and survived coffee spills, dog slober, and getting dropped and still works. I understand that it may be dying, but its my desktop as my old Dell from 2002 died from old (CPU and GPU failure)
Today I double checked my RAM through my BIOS Self Check and it came back goof both times, then I ran a test in Puppy Linux, and it said my ram is okay. I noticed this issue only persists in watching a video online, my laptop has been okay for 7 years. First it happened when watching a tv show on Amazon Prime then buzzed, and blue screened, it was my NTOSkernel, but I fixed that before using the same stick. Since then I have not gotten and BSOD, but this ram issue. I figured that Puppy Linux only runs off of ram, so I tried that and it ran fine. I'm thinking this could be a driver issue or software since all audio programs run fine.
