Recently when I have been listening to audio on my laptop, it will freeze for about 10 seconds and create a loud buzzing noise. Then my pointer would come back and eventually my screen would update the picture. This has been happening for a week now. My audio and display drivers are up to date and had been working well before this.

I have an Acer V3-571G-53214G75.

Thanks
