Although it usually happens on Corellia and the Black Hole, it has happened on other planets. It seems my computer will freeze up for a second, return to normal, and then freeze again a second later, then return to normal after a second and it just repeats like that for a long time. Every time SWTOR freezes a loud buzz will play where there should be background music and whatnot. It's very annoying, please offer some advice on how to fix this.

- Updated DirectX, nVidia, motherboard, and sound drivers.
- Latest .NET framework and C++.
- Only happens while playing SWTOR; no other game produces said effects and I have A LOT of games on this rig to test.
- Started with patch 1.2; problem was nonexistent before then.

Win7 Prof.
Mobo - nForce 680i SLI
Video card - nVidia 9800 GTX
RAM - 4 gigs DDR2

The fix method is---- playing other games. I got this issue since 4/24 patch, and nearly check CS everyday for similiar cases like crash. 2.5 weeks passed, and from those threads, CS usually told you to do a lot of things, but almost all related players responsed: they followed all the trouble-shooting instructions and cannot get crash issue resolved. BW is busy in generating new bugs, so that they can fix minor bugs to claim that they are really improving this game.

BW did offer me 1 free month to play, but I guess that I don't have the chance to enjoy it. Thanks that I only need to wait 4 more days, I can totally say goodbye to SWTOR (I already cannot play this game, but after 5/15, I will not camp this forum any more).
