I recently just bought some RAM and a second HD
1 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
To add some extra space to my computer, now when I hook up the drive, my computer either freezes up often or restarts randomly. I've tried it without the drive, and haven't got any problems, so im pretty sure its not the ram.

I'm starting to notice, it either freezes up completely , restarts, or windows explorer restarts mostly when im doing a task, such as playing a game, moving files that are large, loading up cubase(audio programs).

I've been thinking and is it possible it could be my powersupply, I just didn't think a small item could cause it, but I am running everything on my computer 3 fans+Studio Speakers+Studio Mic+Studio Keyboard+External M-Audio Sound Card, I really need some feed back to see if it is possible that its my powersupply before i buy a new one, if so, anyone got some suggestions on a new one, Thanks.
