I'm not sure if you had any progress on this, but try the drive on another PC. This should determine whether the problem is related to the drive or your PC. If the same thing happens on the other PC, try another USB cable.If all else fails, try WD's diagnostic software for any fatalities.

Try the external hard-drive in some other computer.
If it still causes problems, then it is the external hard-drive, not your laptop, that has the problem.
If the warranty on the external hard-drive is still valid,
exercise the warranty to get a replacement.
If the warranty has expired, you could try to "disassemble" the casing, to remove the "internal" hard-drive that is "inside" the casing.
Then, connect that hard-drive to a desktop computer,
and copy your data to the 'C:' drive (or burn your data to CD/DVD disks), if you can -- it's possible that the "electronics" that convert the USB-interface to the hard-drive interface is the problem, and that your data on the hard-drive is perfectly OK.
