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

has lead me to see that it's the harddrive.  I found another tread where it was noted that someone else had this problem and the fix was to unmount the drive before rebooting.

When mine locks up terminal is locked up also, so no way to unmount it.  Anyway I will see if I can figure this out. Keep it posted.
