Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook
Hi, i got a new 80G Hitachi IDE hard drive, the BIOS was able to detect the correct capacity but when i run WinXP setup, only 34xxxMB was detected. it says the 34xxxMB is unpartitioned, would you like to partition/format/setup. i wonder where is the other half now? what will i do to be able to use the entire 80G?
I will appreciate any information you can offer.
Click on START, right click on My Computer and then click on Mange. When the management window opens, look down the left side until you find **** Management. Click that and on the right side you will see the drives installed. Your HDD should be labeled Disk 0. The size of the drive will be listed. To the right of that you will see a display of the partitions. Yours will probably show the 34xxMB C: partition with and unused area to the right. Right click on the unused area and you should get a prompt to create a new partition in the unused area. Say YES and follow the prompts to create adn format the new partition. You can label it if you like. When that completes, you will be able tosee and access the remainder of the drive in Windows Explorer or any other application.
Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.
