    Occasional PC Crash


    My PC has just stopped.. My second screen went black and the PC froze. I had to power off and on to get it working.

    This has happened a few times over the last couple of weeks. No new applications installed.
    Last week I had 3 / 4 days with no issues, then off it went. Today its been running of around 1 1/2 hours.

    Other times it runs for days with out issue. I'm not accessing the same program each time, although I do have Chrome open.

    Any ideas how I can see what's causing it ?

    Thanks

    A PC freezing with no warning and no error is likely to be due to overheating of the CPU or GPU causing an immediate stop. It could be a memory failure but these usually have a BSOD associated with them. The last couple of weeks have been warmer in the UK so it might be that the running temperatures have increased. A monitoring program could be useful to track these such as HWmonitor or Speccy.

    Thanks for the reply, I've got HWMonitor installed.
    This is what it's currently showing:
