    Freezing/Buzzing when playing games

    Hello! As the title says whenever I'm playing a game it'll randomly freeze for a couple seconds and buzz/loop the current sound through my speakers. Sometimes it won't recover and I'll have to shut off my computer manually. Sometimes after a long freeze it will say Display driver crashed but recovered, I've tried updating my drivers multiple times but nothing. I'm honestly not that computer savy, I've cleaned my computer multiple times and clean started it. Works for a bit but then right back at it. It could be that my graphics card isn't strong enough for the games I play? Doubtful but I'm not sure, especially since I turn down all the graphics. It usually only occurs if I'm playing a game and have a tab open or something. Also did a computer info scan that I'll attach. Thank you for your time! Truly do appreciate any help you guys can give me.

    Your issue seems to be caused by a delayed TDR and the resetting of the Graphics Driver and hence you get a black screen for a moment. Could you please follow the registry tweak (Opened by pressing Windows Key + R and then typing in "regedit") :-
    Navigate to

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ GraphicsDrivers]

    Then create a a REG_DWORD file called TdrDelay and set the value to 60

    ex. "TdrDelay"=dword:00000060 (60 seconds)

    Then navigate to

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ GraphicsDrivers\DCI]

    and Create a Value called


    Let me know how it goes ^_^.
