    Hi ranjith16,


    What's the make an model ?

    It sounds like it's overheating. Move it to a different location. Clean out the vents on the side or back they get clogged with dust and cause over heating. You do hear the fans spinning right.

    Let us know.

    Thanks
    Joe

    I agree, it does sound like heat, but to be sure, how consistent is this "every half an hour"? If 10 minutes this time and 33 minutes the next, then I go for heat (though I sure would scan for malware too).

    If it happens exactly the same number of minutes each time, then something else is going on - and I would scan like mad for malware.
