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

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

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.

nobusCommented:
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
