Check RAM size, than Graphics Card.Basically look for the Hardware issues.
Than, if not Hardware , U gotto look for the code where is the Memory leak !!! and dependency libraries. Moreover, the deadlock scenarios are very common , so look for thread Mingling. those are Very Basics I think I would start with.

Its very important to look systematically so go step by step:

-> first of all, check for a recursive pattern or a one off case. If this is recursive, then debugging is different, or else we can check for a diff path.

1. Check for CPU usage
2. Check for RAM usage
3. Check for low disk space
4. Check for too many process running on the system, occasionally crossing CPU, or RAM or diskspace.

Once you are clear with these, move on to next steps (Check the event log for exact error):
1. Check Graphic Card
2. Check libraries intermingle
3. Check overloading of resources required for the application
4. Check RAM Size
5. Check process/thread deadlock
