Sounds like it could be a hardware fault.

Can you confirm that if the PC is left without the USB drive connected that it works ok and doesn't lock up ?

So I unplugged the external drive overnight, and my computer didn't lock up, so I guess now I will have to look into what in the drive is causing the problem.

Thanks
