Frank 007, your computer will restart after connecting an external hard disk since it is not familiarized with the hard drive. It may also be because your computer is a bit slow and therefore cannot adapt to it quick.

What you need to do is to look for a RAM upgrade or free all extra virtual memory on your computer and registry entries not being used. In this way, you will be able to free your RAM and speed up your computer.

You may also use software like speed up my pc. Hope this works

It is also possible that there is a different problem in your hard drive’s file system that is causing your computer to restart after inserting the USB cable of the external hard drive.

Supposedly, this should not happen on your computer if it doesn’t have any errors in the system. And additionally, some of the portable hard drives need to be installed on the computer to be able to work properly.

It has a built-in installer that starts automatically after connecting the external hard drive to the computer and lets you install the program the first time you plug it. You should also check if the device supports your operating system.

Try checking your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. If this doesn’t help, try scanning your computer for possible virus infection.

Update your antivirus then run a full system scan on your computer. If this also doesn’t help, try uninstalling the external hard drive’s software from your computer and see if this solves the problem.

You should also check if your system has enough RAM.
