Why does my pc keep crashing crashing?

about 1-2 times per day my pc crashes, i cant click anything i cant do anything with the keyboard or anything like that. no blue screen of death comes up, it just stops for no apparent reason. there is no warning to the stop and after it stops i cant do anything.

it usually happens when im not running very incentive applications so im sure its not a power supply issue. honestly i dont know why its happening can someone suggest a fix for it? Currently i am fixing the problem by holding the power button for ten seconds and then turning it back on....
