PC buzzing & freezing while playing Audio/video

  GameOverPaladin 23:05 17 Nov 2015

Hello. I just registered. My PC keeps freezing while I watch a movie or listen to music. It acts like in this video:

click here plugged it into a new wall socket, and cleaned it from dust, updated Windows 10 to version 1511, and I even moved the ram memory in different slots, but the buzz still happens for a millisecond. I haven't experienced this in games afaik though.

Can anyone please help me? It is getting annoying. Before Windows 10, I had Windows 8.1, but I upgraded. This happened with Windows 8.1 as well.

Please someone help me. Many thanks.

Bring up task manager and see what is using your cpu and memory.

Buzzing is sometimes cause by a sympathetic vibration in your PC.

It might be worth reseating your fans and any other piece that has moving parts

My CPU is only 16% used, and my memory 41%. Sympathetic vibration? I am not really sure what I can move.
