Random freezing

hi
my pc keeps freezing, flooding repeatedly the last heared/played sound..
this happens like 2-3 times a day, anyone knows what could cause this?

Did you install any software/hardware recently?

Run a scan of Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes

Or do a system restore: System Restore

Probably a driver lockup.

I'd make sure you are using the latest motherboard (expecially audio) drivers and video drivers rather than any of the built-ins that may have installed with the OS.
