Roll Back Graphics Drivers to Older Version. (Go back at least 3 versions)

Another good solution is to try a different graphics driver version. Sometimes the latest GPU drivers aren't the most stable and can cause issues so going back to an older version might get you better stability. This method works for a lot of games. I generally go back about 3 versions and then check for stability moving forward. It's also possible that a newer driver may work so trial and error is the key here.

Increase Virtual Memory

Open advanced system settings and adjust virtual memory settings based on your system's RAM.

Uninstall and Reinstall the Game

If all else fails, uninstall the game, delete the game folder, restart your computer, and reinstall the game on a different drive just make sure that it is an SSD.
