Computer Hanging, Makes No Sense


Oct 21, 2013
So I have a.... peculiar problem. Often when watching videos and playing games the computer will completely hang - the screen will freeze, cursor in place, as if it was just a still picture. The audio usually turns into a buzz sound, but sometimes the audio will come out distorted and in slow motion when the hang occurs. If I leave it for a few minutes, everything goes back to normal. No error message, nothing. Now the peculiar part - it only happens in my house. I noticed while in College this problem somehow ceased to exist. Yet it reappeared the instant I went home. Laptop is Asus, core i5 running windows 7.

What in the world could make something like this happen?
