|About three weeks ago my brother and i built a new computer, ever since then I have been dealing with a problem that no one seems to know how to fix. My computer "hiccups". It's hard to explain, but randomly, my computer will freeze for one second, and if i'm playing some type of media (music, games, youtube) a sound will come through my speakers during that 1 second freeze. Its completely random, and i'm not sure what is causing it.|
Here is what is in my computer,
Power Supply - Antec 650 Watt
mb - asus p8z68v
graphics card- GTX560ti
RAM- Corsair XMS3 ddr3 8gb
Heatsink - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 1 tb 32mb cache, 7200 RPM
Processor - Intel core i5 2500k
I have done a lot of different things to try and fix it. I have replaced my motherboard, my graphics card and my 2 sticks of ram. The problem still persists, even though I returned those items to the Micro Center and got new ones.
So naturally, it could be a software problem. But I have done a fresh install probably 6 or 7 times since this problem persists. I do it every time I put in a new piece of hardware, except for my video card. I didn't do it then, but I doubt its the problem.
Tomorrow I will be returning my hard drive, my CPU, and my PS. That means I basically have a completely new system. I'm afraid of this problem continuing and I would have absolutely no idea how to fix it.
One last piece to this puzzle. I replaced my video card on tuesday. I started playing the bf3 beta on wednesday, and all of wednesday I only had this problem happen once. Then Thursday it happened a couple more times, and today it started happening like it used to.
If anyone has any idea, I would appreciate it so much. I'm really running out of ideas right now, and I'm not sure what to do anymore. Thank anyone that helps me in advance, and I will do anything to return this favor
