Default PC Keeps Freezing On Win 10?

So i just got my ssd and i installed win10. I had win7 before on my old hdd. I have all my drivers installed and updated. Every ~40 minutes the computer freezes, video and sound. There is no blue screen so there are no dumps to check. This happened before when i ran win10 from my laptop hdd, i had the same problem then but i thought that it happened because of clashing drivers. Now ik its not that. Any reason why this is happening?

Note: My specs are in my sig

Did you do the in-place upgrade or a fresh install of 10?

Did you get your drivers from the component manufacturers' sites?

Checked Event Viewer?

2) Get drivers from component manufacturers' sites manually
3) Guess it's time to start, eh?

Update: So, that reg fix didn't work. I managed to use the computer for 2 hours until I played minecraft for like 5 mins then it crashed. So, I now assume it is a gpu driver error so I will try updating those.

You need to look at events around the time of your freezes. Look under the Windows -> System and Windows -> Applications log categories. Look for errors or warnings, and then click on them to read the summary of the error in the bottom panel, and see if it may relate to freezes you were experiencing.

You need to get all drivers. Chipset, GPU, sound, network, Intel ME, etc. There shouldn't be any "?" in Device Manager.

Reg fixes should be the last thing to do after doing the basic troubleshooting (installing drivers).

Under the System section? Are there warnings or errors around it that talk about application or system hangs? What about under the Applications section?
