If the drive is making grinding noises then apply for an RMA from Newegg

you can try using GParted to format the drive to an NTFS partition

Would have to format it to GPT, not NTFS. Just a heads up there, since it's 4TB drive.

I would've thought windows would still see it, but only allow 2TB or whatever the official amount is.

Well Disk Management isn't seeing it - if it did see it, it would be in RAW format until formatted.

BIOS sees it though, but not Windows for some reason, which is why Joe suggested formatting with GParted to see if that would kick Windows into seeing it.
