Alright, so this is my problem, I had a problem a while ago with a custom pc that i built (you can look at my other forum) where I would be doing simple tasks (browsing web, typing a document) and the computer would freeze and play this loud obnoxious sound the the speakers for a few seconds, and go back to the way it was. Now a friend of mine has the same problem on a different system. He has an hp a6230n desktop: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3548196&lc=en&dlc=&cc=de and he upgraded the graphics card: http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/products/graphiccards/hd 4000series/4350.aspx#2 So I had him disable his integrated graphics chip and I had him make his new card the primary graphics card. It helped slightly, but not very much. Any help to this would be greatly appreciated (and it may help him and me at the same time) Thanks everyone.
