Ethernet connection and boot issues

I have an iMac Desk top (White) when I try to connect a network cable into the Ethernet connection in the iMac it fails to recognized the cable is connected. I have checked the network cable in my Macbook pro and it works fine.
I was advised to To reset the PRAM (hold down Command+Option+P+R )
This did not fix the Ethernet problem, instead it has caused another problem, the iMac will not boot up with my external western digital hard drive connected.
If I power down the WD Hard drive the iMac boots up.
I have checked the WD Hard drive with the disk utilities.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I don't know what's causing that. But this is what I would try. First, I'd create a new User with Admin authority, delete the old user. Then in my new User account I'd run Onyx, all the automated routines and reboot. Then I'd try the ethernet and external HD.
