First check your drivers.
Please go to start>search>type device manager.
Are there any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them?
Is you driver there , listed, and working?
If your driver is missing, or there is a yellow triangle on it, you will need to update it.
If device manager is ok and all drivers are functioning correctly go to event viewer.
There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.
You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).
When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.
When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.
Let us know if you need help with any of this.
