Plug the external hard disk into another computer's USB 2.0 port. If the problem follows the device, then there is a failure either of the external hard disk enclosure or of the hard disk (inside the enclosure).
If yours is one that you built yourself, you can remove the hard drive from inside the enclosure and plug it directly into a desktop computer (or another external hard disk enclosure) to see if the problem follows. (If you need help w/ this, just let us know.)
If yours is a pre-built external hard disk (you bought it w/ the hard drive already built-in) then you'll (if you're inclined to do so) need to open the enclosure to get at the hard disk inside. This can be difficult. You may, depending upon the enclosure, need to damage the enclosure to get it opened up.
Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.
