Go into SETUPand see how the drive is configured. If the detection is set to AUTO and showing incorrectly, manually set the Cylinders, Heads, Sectors and LBA. The information should be on the label on the HDD. Exit and save the changes. The size of the driver should be correct when the OS starts.

Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.

I recover the operating system with hp recovery system, but once completed and restart the netbook, my hp mini 2140 never managed to come in and just boot windows back and forth. then I did the hard disk...


Go into the BIOS by pressing f10 when powering on the laptop.

Go to System Configuration and choose Device Configuration

Scroll down to SATA Native Mode and disable.

Press f10 to save configuration. The computer should reboot and press f9 to select boot device.

See if the 160GB hdd is now showing as an option. If it is then you are in luck.

p.s: You may need to update the BIOS to the latest if it still does not show up for you.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The WD hard disk 160GB is not recognized after plugging into USB


It is very possible that your BIOS will not support a large hard drive. Without more information on your system it will be hard to diagnose your problem.

WD Scorpio Black 320GB SATA drive


Halarious, I had the same problem yet I used norton ghost. At least you still show 160 gb. Mine went all the way to 60 gb. Here is what I had to do to reclaim the lost. I downloaded something called "Magic Boot Disk" It gave me the whole 320 back yet have not found good cloning software yet. Magic Boot Disc is freeware avaliable at http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/ Good luck cloning
