Sometimes, while playing SimCity, my computer freezes and begins looping the last sound. At that point, all I can do is perform a hard reset. It happens at seemingly random points in the game. I have asked EA tech support, but was hoping someone here might know the answer to the following question: is this a hardware issue? If so, what could it be?
I have never had any freezing or sound looping for the lifetime of this computer until SimCity. I have also updated all of my drivers. I play much more graphically intense games for hours at a time without any issue, so I'm quite puzzled as to how SimCity is having these kinds of issues. To make things even more confusing, I built the exact same PC for my brother and he is not having these freezing/looping issues with SimCity.
