My PC keep crashing (freezing) at random times, it can be fine for hours even gaming then just freeze its not always when gaming it cam be when nothing is running it just browsing the web ?
My CPU could do with an upgrade but im having no problems running anything, i brought my PC second hand and this is my first PC (always been on console) my psu is corsair vs350 could that be a reason why it is crashing ?
I had an unreliable HDD with is so i have upgraded to an SSD (i thought it would fix it) but is still crashing.
my PC specs are:
CUP: AMD a10 700k radeon r7
GPU: AMD radeon R7 200
500gb samsung SSD
PSU: corsair vs350
i am slowly upgrading everything but just want to fix this first so i can still use it in the mean time and not worry about not saving my progress ( i have to switch it off from the back when it crashes)
i would greatly appreciate any help thank you.

Your PSU is under-powered and very well could be causing your issues. What exact make/model is your GPU? Or, are you using the APU's integrated video controller?
My gpu is: AMD radeon R7 200 series
and no is is not a single chip.
thankyou for your reply
