1. Check for hardware conflicts: conflicts between two or more hardware components can cause your computer to freeze or crash. To check for conflicts, go to the “Device Manager” in Windows and look for any yellow exclamation marks next to a device. If you notice any, update the drivers associated with that device.
2. Update drivers: out-of-date drivers can cause computers to freeze or crash. To update drivers, go to the manufacturer’s website and download the latest version of the driver.
3. Monitor your system’s temperature: high temperatures can cause your system to freeze or crash. If your system is too hot, you can add additional cooling fans to help reduce the temperature.
4. Scan for viruses: viruses, malware, and spyware can cause your computer to freeze or crash. Make sure you have an up-to-date antivirus program running on your system at all times.
5. Make sure your RAM is not faulty: faulty RAM can cause your computer to freeze or crash. To check if your RAM is working properly, use a tool such as Memtest86.
