|i have a Cavalry 1T external hard drive that keeps freezing my computer with a Windows 7 OS. it works perfectly fine on all my other computers Windows 7, Vista, and XP in my house except my main one. |
i been using this same external hard drive without any problems for the past two to three months on my main one (with windows 7) but when i recently rebooted my computer because of a virus using the windows 7 CD it started freezing my computer.
it takes forever to recognize and when it finally recognizes it freezes my whole computer. unless i restart or pull out the plug on the external it is completely frozen.
now that i recall when i first got my main computer my 1T external did the same thing. it was about two to three months ago when i started reusing this external hard drive because i need something in it. and it worked perfectly, better than new. transferring 1G files in minutes
the last time it worked perfectly on my computer with out any problems was August 1. the day before i rebooted my computer.
i conclude that at some point between me buying the main computer and the last four months i installed something that fixes the problem, but when i rebooted it deleted it.
i am wondering if anyone had the same problem as me or knows what that something is.
if they could please help me.
