    hey all, i'm having a very frustrating problem with my imac. it is randomly freezing up forcing a hard restart. along with the freeze is a terrible noise coming from the (external) speakers. if i turn the volume down, the noise goes away so i know it is not coming from inside the computer.

    the programs i use most frequently are itunes, world of warcraft and firefox. i initially thought it was a WoW related problem but the freezes happen when only using firefox or itunes as well. i took it to an apple store to have it checked out and it passed their tests. the real problem is that i cannot recreate the freeze to show them what exactly happens.

    sorry about the long read, but does anyone have any suggestions? thanks!

    no, because it still happens when firefox is not running. i could have just itunes open, or nothing at all and the freezes still happen.
