Second hard drive keeps disappearing

It reappears after either 1 or sometimes 2 restarts. Also having complete pc crashes regularly with the frequency of them steadily increasing to once every 2 days at the moment. The second hard drive is my E: drive and it just entirely stops showing up and i lose complete access to everything on it. When it crashes the screen freezes entirely until i forcefully restart it, if there is any sound playing when the screen freezes it creates a loud buzzing sound until its restarted.

First option is to disconnect that hard drive and see if issues continue. If they do then it is something else, if they stop, you have a faulty hard drive or at least a faulty cable connecting it to the motherboard.

Ah, well its a ASUS ROG G751JY laptop which cant be opened to get to the hard drive, so should i send it in for servicing to fix it or is it possible its software?

Is this your laptop click here if so then a single screw allows access to the hard drives.
