Hey, so this issue has started occurring in the last couple of weeks or so. At seemingly random times my computer will just freeze and not respond to any keyboard or mouse input, with the only option being to hold down the power button to force a restart. It feels like it occurs whenever I play a game, but it has happened when I'm not too which is why I'm saying it's kind of random. I thought it was an overheating issue initially but I've moved my pc away from the wall and I have a desk fan on it and that worked to help cool my old pc, but as you can see in the specs even when idle it usually sits around 50 degrees celsius. I also read that it could be a memory issue but neither of the tests I did (memtest86 and windows memory diagnostic) showed any errors. Any help would be appreciated as I can't afford to buy a replacement.

I would still very much appreciate a solution to this, it's somewhat urgent at this point.
