I haved an Acer Aspire One A0150. Often when I watch videos, listen to music, or go to websites that open with music/videos, I get a buzzing (ratchet) noise, the computer freezes, and then I get a blue screen that says the following:
1) if this is the first time you've seen this message, restart your computer.
2) if you've seen this message more than once, remove BIOS caching/shadowing.

The whole thing freezes? As in the mouse or keyboard won't even work?
If it's just the video that freezes and you can shut it off, most likely it's a codec issue. Which is dumb since everything you're using came packaged together in the unit. Installing a third party codec pack would solve this issue.
Though, if you're whole PC is freezing when you try to play a video then I have a few other questions to ask you to narrow the potential problems down:
1. Open up the player that opens automatically when you try to watch something, but don't load a video into it. Did everything still freeze?
2. If not, then open a video file that is not something you recorded from TV, like a DVD or a video clip from the net. Did it freeze then?
3. When it freezes, does it freeze instantly? Or does it run for a little bit then freeze. If the latter is the case, what happens in the time between opening the file and the lock down?
ive got a kav60 netbook and the video and audio freezes, makes a nasty buzzing sound. i also have a problem with my mouse, it goes crazy, or sometimes doesnt respond unless i apply pressure to one side of the netbook (slightly bending). tried disconnecting the touchpad, and applying an external usb mouse, but it sometimes freezes the cursor,or the cursor does its own thing. please help
Sounds like the machine is getting bogged down. Download an app called CCleaner and check out everything that's starting when you start your computer. Aspire one's have a pretty small processor and graphics chip so you don't want to overburden it if you don't have too.
Download it from here: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
Then install it and select "Tools" on the left side. Then select the "Start Up" tab just to the right of that. Examine the list to see everything that's starting when windows starts. Disable everything that is non-essential and see if that helps.
Also, check to see if your graphics driver needs to be updated.
More RAM would help... But also remove uninstall all software that you don't use anymore. Press Ctrl+Alt+ Del, Open Task manager. Look at what applications are running and what process are running. The more the slower. Try to lower the amount of items that are listed. You can also watch the graphic window that shows your performance. Again chances are everything is max'ed out and the graphice charts are at the top.
I had a simliar problem and found it was caused by having too many different media player programs. They were all set to be the default player for everything. You might want to make sure only one of your media players is really set to be the default.
