I have this issue: my PC is randomly freezing and making loud noise on speakers sometimes.

Incidentally, my Hard Drive seems to be with problems. Everytime I log in to windows, I get a warning: Windows detected a problem in the Hard Drive. My system boots on an SSD, not a hard drive though.

Are these problems connected? How can I solve them?

    The first thing to do when a computer tells you that it has detected a problem on a hard drive is backup all the data you need to keep. Ignore that it refers to a hard drive: it is not differentiating between an SSD and an HDD. Let us know when you've done the backup and then we can get on with finding out what the problem is. – Andrew Morton Jan 29 '15 at 20:57
  • Hello! Thank you for responding. I just bought a new computer (not entirely. I have bought: processor, video card, motherboard etc. Everything EXCEPT a harddrive. And I've bought a SSD). So, I have no data to backup actually. The only thing that is "old" is the harddrives. – Aloizio Macedo Jan 29 '15 at 21:45
  • What sort of noise? 60 Hz buzz indicates power supply issue or ground loop (perhaps through external speaker power supply), for example. – DrMoishe Pippik Jan 29 '15 at 21:56
  • It is not the same pitch always, I think. I don't know how to describe it. It seems like interference. – Aloizio Macedo Jan 30 '15 at 6:22
