Wifi card disabled when I plug in drive.

Hi all.

This is a follow up to my earlier thread

I marked it as solved because it my wifi started working again, but it is now broken again, it seems to stop working when I try to plug another drive in.

My comuter HP compaq 8000 Elite Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU

HOWEVER computer currently not recognising device after I tried to plug in external USB hard drive, the wifi card switched off.
Previously I tried to plug in an internal hard drive and the wifi card stopped working.
