The BIOS firmware on the motherboard was never updated or there are some missing driver(s) , you can try in case of that a live bootable linux distro on dvd or by usbstick then you know absolut for shure that there is no hardware failure.
no bios defaults set .

Try boot a knoppix or puppy linux live dvd or usbdrive on https://www.pendrivelinux.com/ and after booting that desktop tool look in the popping up app menu for preinstalled gparted or other kdepartition manager from the menu system and look if there is already a partition to recognize on the drive if not you can create one in the partition manager for the ntfs cluster.

External harddrives do not come with an O/S. They are for external storage, beyond the master harddrive you have installed.

The master harddrive has the O/S.
The Platters are spinning because BIOS had a look to see what is on the Toshiba 320GB external harddrive.

[You press the Power On button. The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
(Basic Input/Output System)

BIOS looks to see what devices are connected to the computer, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, then hands the computer over to the operating system.

BIOS finds THE harddrive with the O/S on it ]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

When the Windows O/S (Operating System) is installed on a computer is assigns hash values to certain major hardware components in the computer.

A) Processor
B) Harddrive
C) Motherboard. (Motherboard chipsets and BIOS software on the BIOS chipset)
D) Graphics chip. (Whether it is Integrated Graphics, {OnBoard}, or a graphics card)

Change any two of these hardware components and Windows throws up a 'red flag'.
Microsoft's User License states, "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer"

If a hash value has changed, such as there are different hardware components, Windows 'feels' it is being stolen.

Why do you feel there should be an O/S already installed on the external harddrive?
Awaiting your reply please state in a Comment.

Hard disks do not like being dropped, there is nothing that can be done to repair it.
If you need the data off this hard disk, there are companies that can recover data off damaged hard disks BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

The external storage device has several major components:
* USB cable
* external power-supply
* disk-drive inside the enclosure
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.
Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.
Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.
Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.
Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.
Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.
Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.
