Hi, Sorry if this is poorly written but it is my first post here.
Basically I have a system that freezes on average about once a day... I have some functionality like being able to close my browser and small things but stuff like being able to save any work I have open won't work and spotify will stop playing and things like that.
Icue also freezes and switches to hardware mode
I believe it may be my harddrive as crystal disk lists it as 'caution' and it is relatively old
Thanks for any help in advance!

check cpu/gpu temp?
ram/ssd usage?
malware scan the system?
latest motherboard bios/chipset driver?
power profile set as performance?
cpu and gpu temps good
it could possibly be ram usage... im in cs so when im doin work i usually have quite a few things open
I had one virus detected
and im good on everything else too
