Hi there

the space is still there its just has not been partictioned. Goto diskmanager and you will see the other 60 gig that has not been partictioned, use windows to create a logical drive then format it then you will see the other 60 gig.

good luck

I have a asus Eee pc notebook,when i turn it on the message REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE appears how do i do that?


check if there is any fashdrive or memory card plugged in. if it shows that message it might mean your pc cant detect a bootable harddrive. was it working before? was it dropped or bumped maybe the harddrive got loose. at the bootup screen do you see your harddrive? if your pc can still detect your harddrive try installing a fresh copy or your operating system. hope this helps.

Hi there, please try this trobuleshooting steps. after you push the power button quickly tap the F12 key until you reached too boot options menu. once you are already at the menu, select you Hard drive usually harddrive represent as model e.g WDC **** it means western digital. once you slected the harddrive your computer should boot now to your Harddrive. if else fails, waht you need now is to check if you cmputer was able to detect you harddrive. restart the computer then this time keep tapping the F1 key to enter the utility setup. once inside the setup check your system information under internal HDD if motherboard can detect your harddrive. if yes, then all you need to do there is to use the recovery cd that came with the system then boot your computer from the cd rom then install you windows. If not, then you have to contct your manufacturer. that could be a defective harddrive. please let me know if you need more help.

thanks

Replaced harddrive and dvdroom wont recognize in bios


Goto bios menu. And change the setting on hard drive and cdrom. It could be it still set in the old configuration. Try to set it in auto detect. Then save the setting. Then goto bios once again to check if the settings doesn't change. Restart again and wait if something you didn't expect still happens.

Leave a comment if this solve cd rom detection.

Possible hard drive failure on SLIMNOTE N12PI


I don't think its a hard drive failure thats causing that message, basically PXE means your computer is trying to boot from a network/server. All you have to do is go into your BIOS setup right after your computer boots. Then make sure your BIOS is set to boot from your hard drive and not anything else (floppy, network etc.). And if possible disable any PXE settings.
