This is interesting as I ran into the very same thing the other day. The problem with the Barracuda is that they allowed for a special configuration that would limit the grive size to 2 GIG. If you will look at the jumpers on the drive you will notice an extra jumper that is in the (I believe) horizontal position or in another spot other than master or slave. Remove this jumper reboot with the XP disk in and install. You should see the entire 80 Gig then.

I have a Foxconn sis-661 motherboard and am wondering what is the max size of hdd i can run on it 1Tb-2TB?? thanks guys

Hello the home page is here:

The mainboard is not limiting the size of the harddrive.
But windows does.

You heard correct in relation to the 2TB limit.
The root of this is Windows XP x86 is MBR only meaning that the limitation is to do with MBR
Disks exceeding 2TB must use GPT which extends the limit significantly, however Windows XP does not have this support currently.
A 32 bit version of windows generally will only see the protective MBR on a GPT disk.
Information on Windows Disk support can be found here:

Or course, that being said, I have seen external drive manufacturers combining a GPT loader in with their drives which will allow Windows XP x86 I/O on a drive greater than 1TB, this may be the case in your situation. The GPT loader I have come across is called Paragon GPT loader. I would imagine this would cause lag on I/O as it is another stack process.

You will need a new operating system/computer (Yours is from 2005)
to use very large harddrives.

Hope this will help you

FAT: Number of clusters <= 65526 FAT32: 65526 < Number of clusters < 268435446
Format will immediately stop processing if it decides that the above requirements cannot be met using the specified cluster size.

Do you have antivirus? It could be malware or spyware slowing you down. Theres a really good Malware program out there to suppliment your antivirus with called Malwarebytes located here:

If the venting is blocked your computer can be damaged by the heat that the system will build up.
Assuming you have maintained the system correctly you may be having a hard drive problem. This is simple to check by downloading a program from Western Digital called Data lifeguard diagnostics for Windows. Located Here:

Follow the instructions on the page. If your drive is bad, you can clone it to another drive before your old one fails. Just get another drive and replace the failing one. You should ba able to just clone the old drive onto the new one with software provided by the drive manufacturer.
Also, you mentioned you have 4 gigs of ram. Do you have a 64 bit version of Windows? If you have a 32 bit version you should consider taking it to max of 3 gigs. In a 32 bit verson 4 gigs may show but Windows doesnt handle it very well. 3.5 gigs is supposed to be max for the 32 bit Windows if I remember correctly.

Let me know if this helps. If not I may have another suggestion or 2...

Why won't MB recognise new 2 x 1Gb Memory?

The motherboard does not support 1 GB modules; 512 MB is the maximum the motherboard will recognize. Usually, the computer won't even work if the memory isn't supported but in this case it does.

Thanks and please remember to give this a thumbs up rating.

No drivers are needed - it should have been seen right away. Check the BIOS to see the drive is seen in the drives tables, and if there, XP needs to have the drive setup using FDISK. The drive will not show under windows until a drive table is on it.

You should try resetting the BIOS back to default - if I remember correctly, the Dells of that time had that option in the BIOS. If you still have issues, it may be a coincidence that the drive encountered problems at the same time as when you changed that setting. The software settings you picked in Windows shouldn't affect the drive being seen in the BIOS.

Compaq Presario 5102US with uWave2 motherboard just want to fdisk & reformate

If you need to install XP, you need to get into the cmos settings and in the standard settings enable your cd drive as the first boot device, save setings and exit. Put the XP cd in your drive before you boot the pc, then when on the screen you are prompted to press enter to boot from cd, it will then go through the installation process and ask if you want to format in fat32 or NTFS, the later is the norm for XP. You can delete or set up partitions and format using the cd you do not need to use fdisk as XP does not use it unless you format with a win98 cd
