Hi!

I have this strange random freezes with static noise from speakers. The screen is frozen, but clear, no distortion. The only thing i can do is restart.
After restart there`s no error message or offer a solution.
These freezes does not seem to depend on the usage or stress sometimes i used small applications and happened.

Any help greatly appreciated

regards

Lockups can be hardware, software, OS, or driver related.

Check Windows Event Viewer and see if Windows is logging any errors. Chances are you won't find anything. In which case, ensure all of your drivers are up to date.

Checked Event Viewer, but apart from the fact that the computer was not turned off properly-nothing.
Drivers are up to date.

Can not lock current drive. Chkdsk can not run because the volume is in use by another process.

Do you have any external device connected to your computer?

check the voltage range of the ram and see if you have scope to lift it

I will suggest you to safely Disconnect Printer and webcam/ Restart your computer to check if it freezes again.

if this is your ram move it to 1.65v

some m/boards default to low to cater for cheap ram

No. Voltage +/- only affects the operating voltage.
