One of our computers was working fine last night, and this morning it froze up. So the problem is recent, but unsure what exactly it is,


The computer boots up fine with no errors, but after a few minutes its freezes up. If i restart it immidiately after it freezes, it tries to boot via DHCP with a little spinning ' / '. 

Leaving it shutdown for a few minutes fixes that problem, as it boots up normal again from the HDD with no errors, and runs at optimal speed for a few minutes before freezing again. 




Trying to run a scan with malwarbytes, had a nvidia driver crash and fix itself during the scan, but the freezes started up again - i noticed leaving the scan running while froze the hdd was still working, the cursor never froze, but inbetween the freeze the number of files scanned would jump, then freeze, and then update itself again when it unfroze. Still no clue what the problem is.
