The computer doesn't freeze permanently or crash, rather it stalls for a second or two and then continues on normally. It's been doing this since I got it around a month ago. I have tried monitoring my computer using MSI Afterburner to see what happens whenever this occurs, and it seems that the GPU and CPU drop to 0% usage for the duration of the freeze. If I'm playing a game (which is usually when this occurs, or at least, when it's most noticeable), an offline game will freeze video, audio, and inputs, while an online game seems to only freeze the video, letting the audio and inputs continue functioning.
Although it seems to occur randomly in that I can't seem to forcibly reproduce it, I have noticed a bit of a trend. It seems that every time its happens during a game, the game is loading some sort of effect, model, texture, ect mid-game (as opposed to during a loading screen). I have played these games on less powerful hardware (with the same operating system) and such things have never occured, so I can assume that it isn't simply a problem with the games I play.
My computer specs, if it matters:
Model: MSI GL62 6QF
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
GPU: Nvidia GTX 960M
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700HQ, 2.60 GHz
Sorry if this isn't the right forum to post this in.
