Default Seagate hard drive freezing again!!!!

My seagate 1.5tb drive will every once in a while will just freeze and the computer will bsod and restart. I have had this problem last year but it just seemed to go away but has started happening again. I have seatools and it says there is a firmware update available but when I click the link it takes me to an ever so unhelpful website that talks about the firmware but no where do I see a download link.

I am stumped as to what to do now.

edit: I used the serial number checker and it says there's no update yet I keep getting the firmware message every time I start seatools.

I'd just contact their support. If it's a known issue and they do have an update they would point you to it.
