What is wrong with my computer?

This is the main specs of my computer:

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

AMD FX-8350 Vishera 32nm Technology

8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz (I know I need to more)

MSI 970 GAMING (MS-7693)

2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 (EVGA)

For a while I was able to record my gameplay on Minecraft, The Forest, Ark, etc. with my friend on skype. Then about a month ago all of a sudden my computer started having a audio glitch where after a while the audio would cut out but I could hear like a millisecond of noise every few seconds. The only way to fix it is to restart my computer.

If anyone knows what the problem is and know how to fix it could you please help?

All it would take is some update to break such a system. Review logs of a month ago for any security or driver changes.

Try it with the cover off.

Also take a peek inside and see how much dust there is.
