When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:

You might want to see if you have any BIOS updates pending for your platform. You should also mention which version of the OS you're on if you're on Windows 10. You should also take a look at how many app's you've got running in the background.
