    My pc is doing some random freezes on whatever im tabbed onto, and while its happening i can tab out to for example Chrome and it wont be frozen but the game still will be. and then after a couple of seconds it will either crash (happens rarily) the game or continue running (without being frozen).

    dont know if this is important but sound still continues to play in the background, havent tested if ingame sound continues since i play World of warcraft :)

    this has happened a couple of times outside of gaming, but mostly when im gaming (which is what i mostly use the pc for).

    so far i have tried nothing but updating drivers.

    I'm completely lost to what is causing this so any help would be appreciated.

    sry for the maybe bit confusing explanation :)
