Display Freeze While Gaming

I already solved this problem but its happening again.
So in the middle of a game the image on my screen would freeze and the sound continues. And i cant Alt+Tab or do any other commands so i need to restart the pc.
Im running the games on an external hd (VERBATIM HD) connected to an USB port.

Pc specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Installed in a SSD
8 GB Ram
Intel Core i3-3240
Nvidia GeForce GT 640 with 2 gb

    What game are you playing and at what resolution, also is that USB 3.0 connection to your external HDD.
  2. Ok so this is happening to me in this games (atleast the ones i checked): Outlast, RE6, Watch_Dogs and i play them normaly in 1920x1080, but sometimes i play them on 1440x900 (to reduce lag), and yes the connection to my external hdd is an usb 3.0.
