My Debian freeze randomly

I'm new on Linux and unfortunately I'm having an issue: the computer randomly freezes and the only way I can use it again is holding the power button until it completely shuts off and turn it back on. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, opening the text editor, navigating on Internet or playing a game.

I've ran a deep disk check, SMART test and RAM test and everything looks fine. I've also have Windows 10 installed and I'm not having that issue on Windows. Zero overclock, by the way.

Here you have some info:

What graphics card do you have?

You can run this command in the terminal to find out--

lspci | grep -i VGA
