Is the drive recognized in the bios? The bios in a machine that old probably has an 8.4Gb limit. Go to the motherboard manufacturers web site and look for a bios update. It's unlikely you will find an update to recognize the entire drive. Did you try to partition and format the drive?

    You may have to update your BIOS, if you are using Win98.

    if you don't know how to do it. better off get some one to do it for you.

    IF YOU PUT IN THE WRONG BIOS , YOUR COMPUTER WILL BE UN-USABLE.

Do not showing full space


Hi,

I think the problem is due to a virus. Your system or hard drive (PAN drive) might have a virus. It is the virus causing your hard drive not showing full space. i suggest you install a good antivirus to your computer like kaspersky and NOD32 and scan the PAN drive and formate it. 
go to kioskea downloads - system - formatting, and download the USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL, 
intall it on your pc and use it to format your drive. its simple ans easy. another way is-
You can format the pen drive from hp usb disk format util.. u can download form following link

most likely your hard drive is full.
Go to Settings-System settings-System information. it should tell you free space on your hard drive from your total available space.
Your drive is probably filled with demos and saved data from previous games, maybe music or even dowloaded movies.
If still had the same issue after the restore there is a chance that your hard drive was swapped for a very small one. ckeck the system info first:

Free space : 12 GB/37 GB this is for a 40 gb

If that is the problem you need a different hard drive (SERIAL ata 5400 rpm ).. upgrading the hard is easy.. or even go with an external drive.

Simple problem you made the partions using FAT 16 file system and 80 GB cannot be partition using win98 10 will limit the disk to 10 GB.
Remove all Partions And Use Windows XP to create partition during Installion.
