Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Note down the drive letter of the external drive then op-en Command window and at the Command Prompt, type chkdsk x: /r then press Enter (where X is the drive letter).

The /r switch will attempt to find and fix any disk errors. How much memory (RAM) does your laptop have? Maybe screening a movie and running an external disk at the same time is too much for it.
