I've bought a Dell Inspiron 1564, never again shall I get anything from Dell, just a few months ago and very often my laptop will crash showing a black screen and horrible noise will come out the speakers. I have rang Dell and they were a total waste of time. Can anyone suggest what may be wrong with my laptop or even a way to fix it I would most grateful.

I assume you had some program running that was using the speakers when it froze.

It sounds as if it freezing up

Are you sure that is coming from the speakers and is not an internal component like the fan?

when my laptop is muted the screen will go black and no sound will come out of the speakers, but if the speakers are on then the same happens but with a horrible sound coming out the speakers
