Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
I have a dell dimension 4600 and dell support told me that i couldn't install my new 500 gig internal western digital hd cause they said it's maximum hd could only hold 250gig. Is this true? because when we go into the sys. setup screen, you can see the Western digital hd and it's capacity. please help.
If I am right on this one the 4600 can only take a 250gig hd But I was wondering if you could partion the HD to 236.7 gigs twice so the computer only recognizes the 236.7 gig hd you will see two drives in my computer once you do just format both partitions unless you have another hd and then you will see three drives just do the ones you installed or you may loose your operating system, I don't even know if that will work, but I think it is worth a try seems you already have the 500gig drive, can't hurt to try, I sure hope this help some what.,
