Since you have tried many troubleshooting steps on your computer, I’m not asking you to do more.
>>Just check if your computer has enough memory. Lack of memory may lead to such issues.
>>Make sure you are using a Genuine version of Windows on your computer.
>>Make sure your “Automatic Updates” are downloading the latest updates.
>>I suggest you to do a system restore on your computer and see if the issues get fixed.
>>If it does not get fixed, check the hardware compatibility of your computer and also check if the hardware drivers are updated.
This should fix your issue. Alternatively, you can contact Microsoft support to fix the issue.
