    Well like I said it's not only WoW that does it, plus it "freezes" (can't interact with anything but can move the mouse) on the desktop too.

    I have the same freezes on the desktop, are they short, like 1 to 2 seconds? If so, that's an issue with Optimus and Windows 10. It's mostly fixed in the upcoming Redstone 2 update for Windows.

    I don't have any freezing during gameplay, that's not right.

    Edit: I read your previous post, that's not normal. If a clean install doesn't fix it I suggest calling HP for an RMA.

    Sounds like a NVIDIA driver issue to me since its doing the same thing in other games too. Try updating your GPU drivers to the latest ones. First use a program called DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and then install the latest NVIDIA drivers and then try playing a game.

    Unfortunately it's way out of warranty I assume. I was thinking about it's a SSD issue?

    What version is her NVIDIA drivers? Normally stock ones from HP and/or from Windows update are known to have issues. If she doesnt have any problems doing other things besides gaming and all of the laptop components passed with flying colors then it has to be a driver issue with the GPU drivers. Other than that it could be a problem with Windows 10.

    Maybe try and find a HP Pavilion config for NBFC, since the 2016 Omen is practically a Pavilion, pimped.

    I have the original Omen 15 - Gtx 860m version. Although too late to ask, but has anyone played the new Doom or Ghost Recon on Omen? How are the frame rates and temperatures?

    My touchscreen has started to go crazy (random clicks at the left border of the screen) as soon as the lid is slightly pressed from the back side. Sometimes it just starts completely by itself. Then, only rebooting helps.

    Any ideas what to do?
