  1. I've been getting a strange freeze lately and I can't figure out what the cause is. It usually happens when I'm playing a game but sometimes it even happens when I'm looking at stuff on the web. When it happens the screen completely locks down and sometimes the sound freezes with it making this awful grinding noise. After I have to hard restart I look into the event logs and no sort of error is there also I looked in the Minidump folder and nothing is there either.​
