When my basement lights are lighted, my hall outlet stops working as well as my exterior lights stop working. The switch to the exterior lights is located in the hallway. How do I correct the problem?

You probably need a qualified electrician to either fix the mixed up wires, or to create a new outlet. If lights go out when you put lights on, there is not enough current to support all of them.

Sometimes it's the piece you have plugged into an outlet. If the plug in piece tends to make your lights and other plugs turn off, maybe looking towards the fixture. The fixture may have a issue that is tripping other outlets. Tripping power that turns off, can be safer than a fire when too much is plugged or a faulty piece. There is a professional needed for your safety .
