Please check both the data and power cable connected securely to this drive and go to your BIOS make sure this drive is detected then go back to Windows Disk Management.

Which motherboard do you have? A there are quite a few that will not recognise 2TB drives.
Nvidia 750 chipset for instance. Some of the Asus boards as well. I even had to update firmware on my RAID cards to accept 1.5TB drives.
