    I will try this. Is it possible that the problem is a virus or damaged driver?

I have a motherboard that has only has one ide conncetions


what you should do is make the 300 gig as second drive and your primary drive is the 80 gig so that you can view and back-up the contents inside it. If you going to install a new copy of Operating system that would be in the 80 gig so that you don't need to format your 300 gig and make it as second drive. Hope this could help you..Thanks..

Need to know how to upgrade a hard drive from a 8 gig to 80 gig


I am typing this on a Dell 4600 RIght now. You need to look up how to set the jumpers on the internal hard disk ( 8GB) to SLAVE MODE, and set the 80GB to Master.
Remove the 8GB from the metal bracket, and put the 80GB in its place. Put the 8GB beside it. Plug the 80GB into the end of the IDE cable, and the 8GB into the middle. When you boot, you can hit F2 to go into the bios, and change the boot order from HD0 to HD1 and you can boot from your 8GB.

Now, If you want to boot from the 80GB, ( which I would ) you need an operating system.

Get your Disk labeled Reinstallation CD, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Including Service Pack 1, and boot from it. Then format the 80GB, and install the OS There.. You will need your WIndows XP Home Key. ( you can either get it off the case or use Magic Jelly Bean Key finder to get it off your 8GB. Get the key and write it down. ITS IMPORTANT ).

Then you can change your boot order in BIOS, back to HD0, and boot from your fresh copy of XP Home.

If your interested in having a close to seamless experence as possible, you might want to invest in a copy of Partition Magic Pro. It can copy both the restore partition, ( the first 600MB of your 8gb disk ) and the primary partition of the 8gb, and resize the 8gbs primary partion on the 80gb to 80gb. ( YEA! ).

If you have *any* *any* lack of understanding please clarify

I can boot up when i put in my new hard drive


New hard drives have to be formatted and an operating system installed to be able to boot up.

The operating system depends on what you want to put on there

As you are posting in the XP HOME section I would suggest you set your bios to boot from CD
Place the XP HOME CD in the drive and boot up
It will say press any key to boot from CD DO SO !

Follow the on screen instructions until setup is complete and then start to install the drivers you need and activate XP

Windows XP background loads but no icons/task manager/start menu


well copying the files may be the problem! for instance you need a recovery cd or dvd if you made one and use that to reinstall ur OS like the day you bought it!
try making or getting a windows installer disc then either install ur original OS like home or professinal or use the repair feature that shoud install all the drivers and .dll file you need

320 GIG Hard Drive now thinks it is an 80 GIG hard drive


Enter your BIOS setup and check what the BIOS sees for hard-drive. It may not be assessing the drive size correctly so you may have to force it by manually entering the data it needs to see the drive.

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.

Hard Drive Issue


you can access the bios settings at the first boot screen here you have to go to you boot priority and make the dvd Rom drive you number 1 in the list, save and exit bios insert the xp professional disc and re-install window. during this process do not reair you copy of xp home just install the xp professional it will automatically detect and delete the old xp home files without deleting any of your data. But DO NOT formatt otherwise you will lose your data. lease the file system as is. the only catch with this method is that due to the xp home registries being deleted along with it. most of the software which was installed on xp home will be there but not work you will have to re install it.
