What causes a computer to crash?

Generally, the most likely reason for a crash is due to an error in the operating system (OS).

The OS provides a connection between applications and hardware, enabling system resources to be shared between different programs.

The hardware components must also function correctly.

When these parts reach the end of their lifespan, become too hot or are soiled they can develop faults and cause the machine to crash.
