Hi Durn, and welcome to BleepingComputer.
Are you using a Nvidia GPU?
Two things to look at, check in the Device Manager to see if there are any error for drivers, and look in the Event Viewer to see what errors are showing at the times that this is occurring.
Device Manager: Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager.
Event Viewer: Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.
On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.
The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.
Warnings will appear as a yellow trinangle with an exclamation mark inside.
When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.
Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
