Hi. I got my CB PC in January and I have had an intermittent freezing problem. Gigabyte 970a-DSP3 MB. Usually in the middle of a game (I like WC3) or sometimes Skype, I get a message from Realtek manager that an audio jack is unplugged (not!). Then I get some level of freeze (mouse, keyboard, video) that requires a reboot to restore. I have tried re-install RTK, use different USB and jacks, run Monitor program for memory, CPU, GPU. No luck. Right now I am trying disable audio part of NVIDIA GPU and turning off Realtek HD Mgr in Sound window (trying to reduce conflicts?). Would reinstall Win8.1 help? I suspect the MB. Thanks for any advice of what to try. I am trying to save the expensive return cost!

It just might be the audio from GEFORCE EXPERIENCE, that crappy Nvidia program.

I experienced intermittent choppy audio streaming HDTV programming on my pc using that. I deleted GEFORCE EXPERIENCE and my realtek audio (built into mobo) has been fine since.

If that doesn't fix it I would next go to to DL the latest driver for your particular mobo realtek codec.

I'd hate having to reinstall Windows....that should be the worst case sceneraio.
