Check Your Browser's Task Manager
Here and there, your PC is running fine, yet your program stalls out on a specific page. Also, when such an extensive amount what we do on PCs is kept to the program, this feels like your entire PC is freezing, when it may very well be the page you're on. In those situations, Windows' assignment chief may reveal to you your program isn't reacting, however on the off chance that you need more information on why, you may need to burrow further.
In Chrome, press Shift+Esc to see Chrome's own undertaking supervisor. In Firefox, you can tap the menu fasten and go to More > Task Manager. This will show you the various cycles running inside your program, conceivably giving you some data on what page or expansion may be solidified, or utilizing loads of CPU and memory.
You may likewise have an ordinary clash with an expansion—for instance, I as of late had issues with the Grammarly augmentation freezing Google Docs constantly—so have a go at impairing some program expansions to check whether that takes care of the issue. Ideally, the designers will give a fix, as Grammarly appears to have done.
Reboot and Try Again
On the off chance that Ctrl + Alt + Delete doesn't work, at that point your PC is really secured, and the best way to make it move again is a hard reset. Press and hold down on the force button until your PC kills, at that point press the force button again to boot back up without any preparation.
In the event that you were taking a shot at something significant when the freeze occurred, you might have the option to recoup it, contingent upon the program and how it handles unsaved archives. For instance, Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint auto-spare reinforcements as you work, and you can regularly recuperate them whenever you open the program.
Or on the other hand explore to File > Info > Manage Document(s) > Recover Unsaved Document. It won't really work without fail, however it merits a shot—do some burrowing on whatever program collided with check whether it has a comparative component. In the event that it doesn't, you may be tragically stuck doing a portion of that work over once more.
Check the Reliability Monitor
On the off chance that you actually can't pinpoint the reason for your lockups, you'll need to do some extra investigating. In these circumstances, I suggest checking Windows' Reliability Monitor—it's a lesser-known blunder detailing apparatus covered in Windows' settings. Open the Start menu, look for "unwavering quality," and snap the "View dependability history" choice that shows up.
windows dependability supervisor
You'll see a chart of your PC's dependability over the long haul, with crash logs and different issues close by refreshes and recently introduced applications. In the event that you can discover a mistake recorded around a similar time as your freezing issue started, Reliability Monitor will give you the choice to see specialized subtleties or check Microsoft's information base for an answer for the issue. These subtleties may have some blunder codes you can Google for more data. Microsoft's information base, in the interim, infrequently ever works, however it's something to attempt.
On the off chance that those don't help, you may likewise utilize the diagram to discover what applications or updates were introduced before the freezing began occurring. In the event that another program or update seems to be the reason, have a go at utilizing System Restore to return your PC to a state before it was introduced.
Study Your Blue Screen of Death
On the off chance that your PC's freezing is in the long run followed by an accident and the dismal face Blue Screen of Death, you might have the option to discover more data about the reason for your issues. The QR code and "Stop Code" on the blue screen are good beginning stages for your exploration, however they once in a while reveal to you everything.
That is the reason I suggest additionally checking BlueScreenView, a free device that peruses the "landfill document" your PC makes during an accident and presents it in a somewhat more easy to understand way. (Download joins are at the lower part of that page; they're somewhat hard to track down). It's still genuinely specialized, however you can scroll evenly to perceive what driver or gadget caused the accident, just as different codes you can Google to attempt to discover the offender.
The producers of BlueScreenView have various other freeze-and crash-diagnosing apparatuses also, as WhatIsHang and AppCrashView, which may merit attempting. Once more, System Restore might be useful here in endeavoring to take care of the issue.
Reinstall Any Recent Drivers
While System Restore ought to have the option to fix a ton of issues, I've discovered it isn't generally ready to fix certain harder-to-nail down peculiarities. For instance, my PC as of late began freezing continually after I updated my illustrations card. It ended up it was likely because of some extra parts from the old driver that were clashing, and running Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) in experimental mode was sufficient to tidy up the issue.

On the off chance that you introduced any new equipment as of late, take a stab at uninstalling its drivers—or uninstalling the drivers from the equipment that went before it—and check whether you can't fix the issue. DDU specifically is an extraordinary apparatus for illustrations and sound drivers that are meddling with one another.
Do a Malware Scan
Likewise with all PC glitches, it never damages to do a malware output and check whether something accursed is causing your issues—particularly on the off chance that you haven't done as such in some time. Get a free scanner like Malwarebytes, let it sift through your hard drive, and check whether anything springs up. On the off chance that you run into inconvenience, look at our manual for freeing your PC of malware.
Give Your Hard Drive a Checkup
A faltering hard drive could cause obstacles and other comparable issues, so while you're running sweeps, check your hard drive's wellbeing, as well. You can do this by running wmic diskdrive get model,status in a Command Prompt, however for more itemized wellbeing data, I suggest running CrystalDiskInfo for Windows (free) or DriveDx for macOS ($20 with a free preliminary). In the event that that instrument shows your drive as something besides "alright," it could be the reason for your issues, and you'll need to supplant that drive on the double.
Watch for Overheating
Overabundance warmth can regularly make your PC—amusingly—freeze, so on the off chance that you see this issue spring up over and over, perhaps your cooling is to be faulted. Introduce a temperature screen like Core Temp, design its choices to show temperature in the Notification Area, and drag that symbol out of the spring up plate and onto the taskbar so it's consistently noticeable.

Whenever your PC freezes, you can take a brisk look at the Core Temp symbol to check whether warmth may be your concern. In the event that the temperature is 90 degrees Celsius or over, it's practically sure your PC is overheating.
Clear any residue out of the PC with a high-pressure duster and check the fans—if any of them aren't turning, you may have a bombed bearing and need to supplant the fan.
Test Your RAM
Terrible memory can likewise be a guilty party of secured machines, so on the off chance that you presume you may have a faltering RAM stick, it's an ideal opportunity to run a few tests. Open up the Start menu and quest for the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool—it'll reboot your PC and test your memory, informing you in the event that it finds any issues. You may likewise attempt Memtest86+, an open-source boot plate that performs more exhaustive testing.

On the off chance that all the tests come out alright, it might simply be that you need more RAM. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to raise the Task Manager whenever you experience issues, and snap the Performance Tab. In the event that your memory is pushed to the limit, it might be an ideal opportunity to update.
Google your model of PC to sort out what sort of RAM you have to purchase, and how to supplant it. (In the event that your RAM is patched onto the motherboard—just like the case with numerous new slight and light PCs—you may need to purchase another PC through and through.)
As a last resort, Call in the Pros
On the off chance that nothing else appears to take care of the issue, you may have an equipment issue not all that effectively fixed all alone. On the off chance that your PC is as yet under guarantee, contact the maker for administration. In the event that your motherboard (or some other part) is for sure fizzling, they'll probably substitute it for nothing.
In the event that your guarantee has since quite a while ago terminated, locate a decent auto shop in your general vicinity and check whether they can analyze the issue further. You may need to pay for that fix, or—if it's excessively expensive—supplant the PC completely. It's a bummer on the wallet, however at any rate you'll have the option to complete work once more.
