18.04 When I plug in an External Hard drive the computer shuts off instantly

Asked by Megan Mack on 2018-09-09

Updated to 18.04 a couple of days ago, no issues.
Today, I plugged in a couple of different external hard drives, no issues. Then I unplug one, and plug another in, the computer restarts.
Now, from that point forward every time I plug in an external hard drive, the computer restarts (different usb ports, different hard drives).

The boot order in Bios is still correct.

Do you have the latest BIOS?
Sounds like power issue to me.
Is the system a laptop?
