Hi and Welcome,

Can you please run system file check? In case system files are corrupted, it might be able to fix them all
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
as well as disk check:
Disk Check

What programs or application running at the time of crash? Third party firewall or AV can cause that.

Regard,

Tuan

Yeah, first of all please do the following things I suggested. It can be video drivers that is not working properly. You might want to try re-install the graphic card driver to see if the problem is solved.
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.
