Question about Computers & Internet
It might be partitioned to 40 GB.
Restart the computer, go to the setup page and look for the hard drive and check the size indicated there. If the size is 160GB, you will have to create another partition in Windows (I assuming your are using XP). Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools.
Look for the Disk Manager and Select your Disk. It should have a 40GB primary partition and 120GB of unpartitioned space.
Just right click it and select create and extended partition.

Tips for a great answer:
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem
a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
hope this helps you
