PBIX keeps crashing

My PBIX file is up to date with the new March 2022 release. This issue has been occurring for months now.  

 

I work on multiple dashboards throughout the data. every couple of times I open a new PBIX file, it won't open and then freezes any of the other PBIX files I did have open.  It will show a blank screen and then causes my screen to flash.  The only way I can get rid of this is by ending the process in Task Manager. There are some times I may not have saved data in a prior PBIX file, when opening the other one. 

 

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? I recently upgraded to a new CADD machine with a ton of memory and ram at my company so that should not be the issue.
