Is heavy work and lockups are not uncommon. But the YouTube is actually a more common issue and the trick I use is to disable hardware acceleration for the browser in use. So google like this:
Disable Hardware Acceleration Chrome.
Replace with which browser you want to stop lockups in playing videos.
The runtime error is more likely a bug in the game. For example, last year I worked one like that and tracked it down to the game would fault when anti aliasing was set to specific values in the game.
I was thinking of sharing a google on that but decided not to. Such things are game specific and need to be hunted down in the forum for that game.
Recently, my computer started freezing for 2 seconds while making a buzzing noise. It's happened about a dozen times in the last 3 days and it's worrying me. It started while I was playing a game, but then it happened a few times while watching youtube videos. The computer is fairly new. I've never experienced this before with any computer, though this is my first desktop.
The game crashes a lot because it's modded and I'm terrible at doing that type of thing. I recently started getting a runtime error occasionally when loading my saves. Despite these issues, I continued to play and now I'm wondering if that's the reason why this is happening - because I played a poorly modded game that triggered an error that goes beyond the game itself. This is my theory. But can I fix it? I am not going to play the game anymore at this time but I know that isn't going to make the problem go away. (it's Oblivion if that means anything)
I have a Dell XPS PC with Windows 10, 16 gb RAM, 256 SSD, Intel core i7 8th gen, some kind of NVIDIA card, not sure the model. Any advice, even the simplest most "for dummies" help is appreciated, thank you!
