Windows not formating 2TB drive

I just installed a Hitachi 2TB drive in my HP a6702y computer, my system sees the drive and windows was able to make a simple partition, however when I try to do a quick format I get an error stating that windows could not complete the format. If I do a sandard format it stops or hangs at 54%.

The HD is SATA II and my MB supports that so I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated.

What version of windows do you have? And have you tried a quick format instead of a standard one?

I'm using Windows 7 and yes I tried quick format first and it would not complete formating
