A computer "crash" is a general layman's term for equipment being in an unresponsive state.

A crash also describes an event of the heads of a hard drive physically coming into contact with the surface of the physical disk.

Not to be confused with the computer "bombing".

That generally is an unresponsive computer that can be remedied by restarting it.
