Default Oh No, hard drive missing!!!

Well, I went to look at something on my second hard drive, and noticed it wasnt there. I restarted it like 3x's and still wasnt there. I then restarted into safe mode and there it was. What the crap is goin on?!? Please help, please.

Is it detected in the bios? Can you open the pc and see if the hard drive is actually running? Maybe you need to switch power plugs, I've had that problem before.
