HP Omen freezes

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 880-109nc
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, a few weeks ago, I have installed second new HDD to my HP Omen desktop to upper bracket of the PC. Now, I am experiencing random freezing of PC for a few seconds, sometimes it takes longer and PC restarts itself. Is it possible, that my PC can not handle more than 1 HDD anymore (it is already 2 years old)?

@Miro0102-SVK- , welcome to the Community.

 

I would say that you most likely received a failed HDD.  The PSU is 500W.  So, it will have no problem with two HDD's and a M.2, SSD.

Well, I have done some observation in Event viewer, and this Error popped out, when it happened:

Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Can it be a cause? Something with graphics card/drivers?

Thank you for the additional information, @Miro0102-SVK-!

 

The best way to rule out a video card problem is connect the monitor to the Integrated Video on the motherboard to see if this solves the problem.
