I have a Dell Studio 435MT running Win 7 64. After I installed a My Book Essential via USB, the computer will not boot up on the first try. It freezes at the Dell logo on startup. I have to manually power down the computer by holding the start button for about 6 seconds. When I start up the computer the second time, it will start OK. It is very consistent. I have to do this every time I want to power up my computer.
I tried disconnecting the USB connector from the My Book and it powers up fine on the first try. I am assuming that my power up situation is due to the My Book. Any ideas?
