The possible reason that your computer hangs can be that you do not have enough memory and/or you are trying to run a big program that uses a lot of your memory at one time You can try to add more ram to your system and also try not to run a lot of programs at one time, like games, and other programs that take a lot of your memory Those are the possible reasons why your computer hangs.
