Tecra laptop w/ external harddrive .. freezing on start up.. help

[ Edited ]

I have a Toshiba Tecra laptop, I am using it with a Western Digital 500 gig external harddrive connected thru USB 2 connection.

 

The laptop freezes when I turn it on If I leave the external harddrive pluged to the USB port.  Can anyone help me in fixing this.
