If you are having similar issues, there are a few troubleshooting tips you should follow before trying to reset or install your Windows. This tutorial will address this issue and show you how to fix Windows 11 crashing issues.
Fix Windows 11 crashing issues
There are different fixes that you can try to fix this problem. Try the following methods and see which works for you.
Most of us don’t shut down our systems properly. We mainly put the system to sleep, which can sometimes cause problems. Regularly shutting down your system can help keep it “healthy.”
- press the the Windows key.
- Click on the Able icon in the lower corner and select Close.
If you run out of RAM, you will face frequent crashes. So make sure you have enough RAM.
- Click on the look for icon and type Resource Monitor, and press To open.
- Click on the Memory tongue.
- Check the Available physical memory.
If you’re low on memory, close unnecessary apps and background services.
Step 1: press the Win + X keys and select Task Manager.
2nd step: Click on the task you want to close and select Final task.
It is possible that your RAM is also having issues. You can diagnose problems and fix them.
- Open the Course box using shortcut keys Win + R.

If you have a laptop, always use the AC adapter that came with it. Using another adapter may cause long term problems.
With global warming pushing temperatures up, long gaming sessions, long hours of work, streaming, and more can cause your computer to heat up. High temperatures are not suitable for any machine, so wait until it cools down before using it again.
Fix Windows 11 crashing issue by replacing CMOS battery
A CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) battery powers your BIOS. Changing this battery is much more difficult on a laptop. So if your PC’s CMOS battery is getting weaker over time (it has a lifespan of 2-10 years), you need to change it. It is possible that your old battery is causing crashing issues for your Windows PC.
If you keep getting the blue screen of death or pink screen of death, it’s possible that your drivers are outdated.
Step 1: Use the Win + X keys to open the WinX menu and select Device Manager.
2nd step: Click on Screenshot taken to expand the option.
Step 3: Right click on your adapter and select Update driver.
Step 4: Click on Automatically search for drivers and install the latest driver.
