Consistent crashes with simple gaming and netflix - latest drivers installed.

So, I've had this problem for a while now. 

I play a 14 ish year old game called dawn of war, and it crashes pretty consistently about every 20 minutes. 

In addition, I watched a couple episodes of a show on Netflix on my computer, and it crashed twice, once per 30-minute episode. 

There's no warning, there's no noise, and the computer restarts and acts like everything's normal. 

The computer I built in 2016, and hasn't had these issues until the last year or so. 

The drivers are all up-to-date, and it's plenty powerful enough to run these simple programs. 

I cracked open the case and it's not very dirty. 

Beyond keeping drivers up to date, I'm not sure where to begin fixing this.  it's a bit frustrating, but my computer restarts quickly.  So that's something. 

The only error report I get upon restarting is:  "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to an unexpected system failure."

Is there a way to run a diagnostic or see an error, bug, or crash report?  Because this is a frustrating problem.
