PC freezes secounds in the middle of the game

I'm suffering from this problems in my PC
sometimes when I'm gaming, the PC freezes for like five secounds in the middle of the game and makes this loud static noise from the speakers and then it restarts.

and sometimes the screen goes black for seconds when I'm gaming or watching YouTube or simply just working on my browser, and then it comes back again saying that "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"

and sometimes my PC just restarts randomly.

I tried reinstalling the GPU driver, tried old versions, but it didn't work.

Operating System
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
CPU
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
RAM
10.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard
ASUSTeK Computer INC. M4A785T-M (AM3)
Graphics
2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 270x (Sapphire/PCPartner)

Tell what psu you have......make and model.

When's the last time you gave the innards a good cleaning with some compressed air?

Don't forget the psu a few shots of air from both directions.

thanks for replying

hey bob
my PSU model is FSP Hexa+ 500

I've tried cleaning all the fans with a hairdryer (cold air) including the PSU fan.
and I also reseated and cleaned the GPU and the CPU.
I even changed the Paste on the heat sink.

ps : sorry for my English, it's not my mother tongue. Happy

Your psu is too light and it's a dual rail model.

Shop around for a 650w single rail unit.

There is no guarantee it will fix anything it's just plugging a hole.

Before you go and buy something post the make and model of what your looking at.

I've fixed a lot of machines that just freezes then continue

I usually find an iffy HDD. But in your case you must try the canned air cleaning and leave the cover off for now. The 10GB RAM looks odd. You should also move to a memory system where all the sticks of of the same make and model as mixing can cause very hard to diagnose problems. As in, all memory tests fail but moving to just a single stick or all the same fixes it. Just try to explain that.

You also have one of the usual shop hounds. That is, a common CPU system that hits the repair counter and if the simple things don't clear it up you change the motherboard, CPU and sometimes the GPU and PSU. Let's get two things into the discussion.

1. The PSU make and model. A product link is best.
2. A Web Speccy report to look for HDD and other issues.
