consider getting a new one.
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...
