ok my computer has started acting funny lately and I cant see any issues with it. about 2 months ago it started with a humming out of the speakers when I turned on power to the computer but hasn't yet been turned on. when I hit the power on button the speakers made a popping type sound but not excessively strong to cause alarm or anything so I just figured the cheap speakers were showing their age. after about a month of doing it this noise stopped happening. all was fine for about 3 weeks then I started getting random BSOD going on about once a day so double checked all data connections and made sure everything was clean inside and fans were working. I couldn't find any reason for these BSOD but at about a week into it I got 2 or 3 BSOD a day for 2 days in a row then everything was fine again and no more problems. its now about 2 weeks since I had the last BSOD and now the computer seams to freeze up at random on me. it just gets lost and nothing works, no mouse no keyboard, there seams to be no HDD activity and if I use ctrl/alt/del to get the task manager it doesn't work because the keyboard and mouse are locked out so I have to manually kill power to restart and after restarting everything works fine again. just today for the first time it came out of a manual restart and was still frozen in that I had no mouse or keyboard function to tell it to do anything. I have built several computers and had my share of experience with OS reinstalls and virus issues requiring manual cleanups but I haven't had any viruses or computer issues for 2 years now so I cant see this being virus related even though I have done several full system virus cleanup checks including a boot scan and nothing was ever found. I am suspecting this must be a component issue on its way going bad but nothing can be seen visually wrong and im just purely guessing this could be part of the motherboard going out because it seamed to start with the sound being affected first. can anyone offer ideas if this sounds like I am suspecting the correct component that is having issues? the computer is the one listed in my specs EDIT: I also forgot to mention, when using the mouse button to highlight something to copy or edit it hasn't been working right either. sometimes it does not work from the top or front of the sentence but I must start at the bottom or end of the sentence and highlight it going from the end to the beginning in order to highlight it. it also makes the page jump to a different spot when I click to take some form of action like copy after highlighting it. also when you click a spot to start typing it randomly jumps to the top of the page or somewhere else as soon as you hit any key and you need to watch where it is before you start typing but once you start typing it stays where ever it went to.
