Emachine T6212 Freezing Problem

I bought this michine almost a year ago.. the problem first started with it freezing up with a high pitch sound coming from my speakers when running the xp home version and factory settings this kept happening for the next few months.So i thought it might be,not having enough ram so i boosted up to 1gig of ram and still the proble persist i then thought maybe its the sound card so upgraded the sound card to the Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS. started to play some movires from the Hard dive and music and again it freezes up with the same loud high pitch buzzing noise from the speakers after it freezes..So i thought i buy Upgrade the OS system to Windows Media 2005 maybe this will solve the problem and still even after doin this a full reformate it still does it.. if anyone can help please let me know thanks.. specs of my computer are below...

Do a scandisk of your hard drives. If the surfaces are corrupted (as opposed to files) it may recur during the scan. If that happens a new hard drive is in order and you had better backup your files ASAP. Try defragging the drive. This will reposition the data to different parts of the drive. This could also be a good indicator of whether or not the drive is failing. If file are corrupted you may have to reformat the drive and start over. There is software that will "scrub" the surfaces and in many cases recover areas of the hard drive that were corrupted. Gibson Research's (grc.com) SpinRite v6 is such a software. There are others. Let us know.

A question comes into mind here: Why not take care of it under warranty when it first came up? What about now?

and life goes on...
