Possible sound/video card issue?

by -kmart- / December 26, 2009 6:41 PM PST

Hey everyone. I just got a new computer for Christmas, and have been experiencing some issues. When I try to play a video on youtube or listen to a song, it makes this weird feedback type of sound, like a robot buzzing type of deal, the videos freeze and then play, audio will come in for a second, and then return to being frozen and that errr-ahh sound. I haven't experienced anything like this before, and was wondering if anyone has any input on it. Thank you!!

System Specs:
HP Pavilion a6750f
750 GB HD
AMD Phenom 9650 x4 64 bit processor
Windows 7 (upgraded from Vista as soon as I got it)
Integrated Audio with ALC 888S Chipset

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
