External hard drive only starts in safe mode

Post icon  Posted 11 November 2007 - 09:25 AM

I have an external hard drive that when plugged into my laptop loads and operates fine, but when i plug into my desktop it locks the computer and wont start correctly. But if i start the computer in Safe Mode the hard drive is started as normal.
i presume there is somrthing blocking the hard drive on start up, but i cant think what?

Any ideas?

By the way, both computers are running XP

Thanks
