The video keeps freezing during playback, every 30 min or so. Gives a buzzing noise then carries on playing after 10-30 seconds of buzzing. No issue with Netflix or other web-based movie provider; just when I play files actually stored on my PC.

This started after I recently installed Windows 10 on my old HTPC. I reinstalled all the drivers; seems to have helped a bit by making the buzzing shorter and quieter but didn’t solve it. Tried playing via different software - same issue. Tested RAM; the system says no errors.

Hardware:
  • Sandy bridge i3-2100T @2.50GHz(LGA 1155) 35W with integrated onboard 3D video
  • ASROCK H67M-GE/HT (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Inel Motherboard
  • G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT
What can I do to solve this? Thanks!!!

Check the temperature of the CPU while the video is freezing (with tool "coretemp")

Check the windows event manager for errors

check the hard drive with its manufacturer´s tool
Temperature is fine and so is the hard drive.

Event Viewer is reporting periodic problems with Genie Timeline. That’s not something I recall installing. Nor does it appear in the add or remove program list, but I found the Genie9 folder, so it’s there. Gennie error events come in a variety of types, e g 7031 and 1000.

Another error I am seeing is 1020 Perflib, to do with the buffer size.
And finally, event 69 - AppModel-runtime.
Our internet is quite bad right now; not coping with the loads. I am wondering if the app is trying to download something in the background, isn’t getting it and is causing issues.
 
Please record the buzzing sound with your phone and upload it to youtube or similar

run www.userbenchmark.com and post the link of your result

run malwarebytes or similar

check windows integrity
open the command prompt as administrator and type DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Is an uninstaller exe in the genie9 folder?

which app is the problem in the event 69 issue? Should be like:

Eventually backup your personal data and reset Windows 10

I see that Windows 10 does not seem to provide a driver for my GPU. Is there anything
I can do short of replacing it?
Memory and storage are ok.

And if I were to add new GPU, could you suggest something compatible and cheap that would work for watching videos?
Thanks!
