    Windows 8 makes a sound and pauses netflix.


    Windows 8 makes a three tone sound and netflix pauses.

    I suspect it also crashes my games when it says it.

    I have tried replacing my RAM, but it still does it.

    I have never had BSOD and windows does not stall or crash in any way.

    I reinstalled from windows 7 to windows 8 about a week ago. Windows 7 worked fine.

    Hope you can help! Tell me if you need more info.
