ok so its been i think almost a year where my pc keeps on freezing when playing video games.
tho theres one game i can play for 24 hours and nothing would happen, other games however freeze my pc after one game.
here are my specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. F4, 21/02/2017
System Model : B250M-DS3H
BaseBoard Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
BaseBoard Product : B250M-DS3H-CF
Adapter Type : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, NVIDIA compatible

ive had this problem for over a year and i believe i managed to try every single method online but none of them seem to work

See if you have any overclocks, underclocks applied in the bios, or in msi afterburner
Monitor your temperatures, the system might freeze because of high temperatures (higher than 90°C on the cpu or higher than 85°C on the gpu)
Update or reinstall gpu drivers.
Update your bios.

hi sorry for late response
what do i do next :)
so u installed the new bios, does ur pc still freeze?
If it does you need to upgrade your gpu drivers
If it still freezes, it might be a gpu issue
You haven't said what power supply you have, mind telling me?

What exact make and model is your PSU and how old?

What storage do you have and how full is it?

You were asked to monitor CPU and GPU temps above and you didn't reply to them?

When crashed happen while gaming it can be an overheating issue. You can use HWINFO from here to monitor CPU and GPU temperature at idle (system doing nothing) and while gaming.

Also is the display driver updated to latest verios for the 1000 card series?
