I have a Western Digital WD Elements external hard drive. When I plug it into my laptop, the laptop behaves like there has been a short circuit and restarts immediately. After the restart, everything goes back to normal.
Here are the facts that give me trouble:
If I plug the device into one specific port, the computer does not restart. It happens if I plug the device in the remaining three ports. Those remaining three ports are USB 3.0, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
The device does not cause this behavior in any other port of any other laptop.
No other external hard drive cause this problem in my computer.
I am using Windows 10 Pro operating system, and I have tested WD Elements with other computers using Mac, Windows and Linux.
