Have you checked the drive for errors?

Check your hard disk for errors

Check to make sure that the SATA controller in your BIOS set to IDE mode and not RAID.

Is it possible to check it without restarting my computer and going into my BIOS?

Get the brand name and model off the sticker on the hard drive. Go to the maker's web site and get the formatting/checking software.

With what AR said not working, this is your best bet. The software is free and designed to work with/specifically test your drive.
