    My PC is randomly crashing after installing w10

    It crashes approximately twice a week. It crashes if I am playing game or just watching videos or doing nothing. Today it crashed 2 minutes after start.
    How does it crash: Screen freezes, every sound stops so i cant hear anything and I see the last picture on my monitor. I cant move with my mouse simply I cant do anything so I have to hard reset.
    There are my PC specs but I dont think theres problems with them. This crashing wasnt happening when I had w7.
    Also sorry for my english I know it sucks.

    CPU: AMD FX-8320 8-core, 3.50 GHz
    RAM: 2x4 GB
    Hard Disk: 2TB
    Mother Board: MSI
    PC Source: 600W

    Always look for the simplest explanations first.

    Have you checked for faulty memory? Try Memtest86+

    Difficult to test other things if it only happens once or twice a week, but I would suspect an incompatible driver or lack of a driver update may be causing this. Make sure you have checked the MSI website for all driver updates for W10 with your particular motherboard.

    Please report back after these tests and we can suggest other approaches if needed.
