Work through these troubleshooting steps.

Pay particular attention to the steps to check for overheating, comb the logs and System Resources for causes.

The steps lead to a possible Repair Install as a last resort before Clean Reinstalling which is always a fresh start actually much better than getting a new computer since they are all larded with bloatware which we show you how to tame and a clean reinstall eliminates.
