Question about HP Pavilion a1320n (882780261747) PC Desktop
Theoreticaly win xp will support 4Tb hard driver (hdd), but, your motherboard need to support this size as well, in your case, in both accoutns you are within limits.
This was theory, now practicality, LBA (Logical Block Address) was originally created as 24bit for ATA/PATA?ATAPI devices, calculated size supported therefore is 137.4GB.
In case of your computer, this motherboard should support 48bit formating and therefore size of 144.000.000GB (144.000TB).
I would suggest following actions, go to this site:
Download newwest BIOS, unfold it to the disk and update BIOS, then use in installation windows xp sp2 or above, windows xp alone do not format properly harddrivers that size.
Another causative agent is how windows create partition and format under NTFS/NTFS5 system. It creats enormous size MBR and reserved "patch" for system files, in your case this is main "loss" of the space.
You can actually "reclaim" heaps of this spce by partitioning, but this crates another problems and you need to investiate which method will be best in your particular case.
