i have been experiencing this problem since i got my computer out of the shop with several brand new components. everything runs fine otherwise. what happens is when i try to play a game online everything will be fine for awhile, and then it will suddenly freeze. the sound will continue to loop for about a one second interval, the screen will remain the same, and nothing i press will do anything. i will have to reboot my computer. is there something wrong with my internet service, i.e. hitting bad bouts of lag, or could this be something else?
