I've been using the WD Passport 160GB with my Dell Laptop for almost a year and everthing was fine until this morning when I tried to turn on my laptop and noticed that it would not boot up properly. It would go up to the black Windows XP loading screen and then restart itself. Everything was fine after I disconnected the HD. When I plugged it back, it would cause my laptop to restart.
Afterwards I tested it out with my two other desktops. Windows would recognize the HD and immediately restart itself. With the desktops, Windows would actually load but right after loading, the computer would restart.
I don't know what causing this problem. I did not move or drop my HD recently
