everytime I plug in my external hard drive to the computer, it alwas to long to load and than the screen just goes black and when I unplug the external than it goes back to normal
 
(This should likely be moved to/more appropriate in 'storage')

Are you plugging it in after the desktop is reached?

Is the drive identified as connected/shown in 'Computer' ?

Many times a drive which contains data that can no longer be read will simply confuse/and eventually lock up WIndows Explorer...

YOu can try another USB port, and, even another computer. If multiple computer's lock up with this drive attached, it is likely failed/failing (USB external drives rarely have the longevity/service life that internal drives do)
