Question

My PC started crashing frequently for various reasons.

I usually open my computer, hop on a game or browser and it crashes. This happens plenty of times until it stops(I am saying 5,6 times). Sometimes the BSOD doesn't even show up, and the screen just freezes. Any tips on how to fix this?

Note:I own this PC for 2 years, and replaced my video card last year, and that is when the crashes started to occur. At first there were occasional crashes, once a week. But now they increased in frequency.
My specs:AMD Radeon R7 360 Series(It used to be AMD Radeon R7 200 Series I think)
AMD Athlon Dual Core 340 I think

Have you been keeping up with cleaning?

Oops

Totally forgot to clean. It's been a year since I last cleaned it(aka when I replaced my video card).I will clean it soon. Thanks!

PS. I didn't tell something.

It's more of a tech tip really. If you get a collection of BSODs and hangs it's usually something hardware going wrong. Heat, RAM, heatsinks, fans, HDD, etc. Usually a software issue will cough up the same BSOD. But when you get a collection of different codes, then I'm looking at the hardware.
