Exchanged laptop and still has the problem. Software related?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I returned my laptop and got the same one again and it still has the issue where if the hard drive activity LED is blinking or if I am installing or uninstalling something my youtube video partially freezes and the sound gets really distorted. This isn't just with youtube, it happens anytime I am starting my PC or something.

This is the second laptop that still has this issue. I thought the first one had problems with the speakers but now I am thinking it is software related.

Do you think the activity of the hard drive could cause youtube to freeze and the sound to get really distorted and loud every couple of minutes?

after reading a lot of reviews i would say it is getting hot and throttling, and the hard drive is not the greatest, but works. it has one cooling fan, thats not enough for the cpu and gpu. one will push heat into the other and cause problems.
