I presume this is an external hard disk.

If it is getting power from the USB port then get an external powered hub for it rather than relying on the computer to supply the power.

yes, as dbrunton said, that is a possible cause
this is the one i use : http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=158910

or the interface can have problems - is it a replaceable external case ?  then you can try another one - and another cable

No external drives are attached to the pc with this occurs.

I have reset my bios settings, didn't fix the problem.

I have updated windows no fix either :(

Thank you.

It could be a failing power supply - try a different one with a similar or higher rating.  Otherwise, I would say it's your motherboard failing, especially if it's more than a few years old.

How is this USB drive connected to this computer?  You have said it is not external, so how exactly is it attached to the computer.

you mean there is no drive connected when it happens?
then an USB port can be shorting  -inspect them
another option can be a bad usb chip
