This is normal as the Harddisk will never give You the full space  mentioned  
It reserves  some space for the formatting information.
some times  If ur disk is formatted in NTFS it takes  up more space than FAT formatting.

So this is normal .

Even on My comp i have something like 150Gb  when it states 160GB so i guess urs is normal.

hope this will solve your curiosity

I tried to install Windows XP and now it only sees half the hard disk of 320 GB that is only 160.


Hi, You can check the available **** space on your computer by going to Disk Management Utility in Windows XP. You can go to the utility by going to run then typing compmgmt.msc > then click on Disk Management > this utility will indicate the free space and also will give the total size of you hard disk drive. See if there is an unallocated disk space on the computer. You can right-click on it then choose to format it and then assign a disk drive letter like drive d: .

System slower since installing Windows 2003 and prevent popups


Could you run anti virus to your system, anti malware. Avira free and Malwarebytes antimalware. This is for popups. Could be you are caught unaware this maybe a virus problem.

Also add additional ram if you can make total at least 1gb. You can try also using ccleaner to delete log histories. Just don't touch the registry features if you are not familiar with.

Over all this could give you some speed enhancement.

Just for an input to consider.

Had to reformat drive,it totally crashed


If you completely formatted the drive and did a clean install using factory disks and it still didn't install properly you may have bad sectors and you may need to replace the drive.

Long periods of hard drive activity


Most likely, it could be the amount of ram you have in your computer. If your running low on ram and it is using the virtual memory your computer can be running all the time causing a slow down in whatever you do. Check to see how much ram you have :)

Crashed desk top been reformatted wontaccept medion system files


Seems like you will need to get your hands on a restore disk or windows installation cd for the version you have.

You will need to either restore the computer to the original state or install a fresh installation of windows from the setup cd, after that you need to get the drivers for the computer from medion support.

HARD DISK CAPACITY PROBLEM


When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

This is not a problem, so dont worry.
