Windows 7: Hard drive detected in BIOS and Debian but not Windows.

Hard drive detected in BIOS and Debian but not Windows.

I have a 3TB hard drive that suddenly disappeared from Windows Explorer AND Device Manager. I rebooted but it was still missing. The BIOS shows it and Debian is able to mount + read files on it.
After I accessed it on Debian, it reappeared on Windows. I ran Seatools but my computer froze when Seatools was scanning for drives.
It seems that accessing the faulty drive causes Windows 7 to crash. How is this possible? What can I do to fix this?

The drive showed up again after repair installing Windows 7. However, my computer still crashes when I run Seatools. Chkdsk returned no errors and I am currently running a HD Tune error scan.

If you think the drive is bad, replace it. They have warranties.

Check it`s connections again.

Another tool to use.
