Ok, some more questions:

- Do you have critical data on the external Hard Disk?
- I suppose the External Disk its USB connected, did you connect to a USB port on the front panel or on the back of the machine?
- The external disk is 2.5" without a AC adapter?

By "Critical Data" I mean you have some files on the disk that you can't lose.
So the disk is 3.5" in size? and receives energy from a external power source.

Ok, The disk is 3.5" with external power.

You need to run chkdsk /f on the drive but there is always the possibility to lose files when check disk try to fix things that's why i ask about the critical stuff.

Or you could try to connect the Disk to a different PC maybe it will work ok and you can copy all the files to the PC and then run check disk.
In the present situation I don't advise you to add new files to the disk until you make sure the file system its error free by using chkdsk.

Its better to open the Command Line first...
Click Start > Run > cmd

then type:
chkdsk /F X:

Note: Replace X with the correct drive letter.
