Check for hardware problems

You may also want to check your PC's hardware component for problems. Check that the components are inserted correctly into the slots. Check for RAM, network cards, sound cards, graphics cards, etc. to detect problems. Make sure you clean up the accumulated dust inside the CPU. Also, check if the fans are working properly. If you remember installing a new hardware component after which the problem started, reinstall it and if the problem persists, it may need to be replaced.
