Dota 2 randomly Freezes when playing.

Hello, First time poster. For quite some time I have been experiencing a problem with my pc. When I play dota 2, the game will randomly freeze sometimes. When this happens, the game seems like it minimises but the in game cursor is still there and I can hear the game still playing. I cannot click on anything as I only see the desktop but I can still hear the audio. I can also click buttons on my keyboard. When this happens i usually press f9 which pauses the game. And i need to clsoe the game then restart it. When I go to task manager it does not say the game is not responding or anything. But I cannot get back into the game, as if I go back to it the desktop is still visible but the in game cursor comes back and I can hear the sounds. Also Ive noticed that there is a very small small box at top left of screen when this freeze occurs but goes away after i alt tab. I have tried a windows reinstall but it still is happening. I have ensured my nvidia graphics drivers are up to date using the nvidia geforce experience. I play on a monitor and i have checked if this only happens because of my hdmi or monitor but it still happens when using just my laptop screen. Anybody have any idea why this is happening? Here are my pc specs.
