Maximum size of hard disk supported

Hello Sir,

I have intel 845 glly mother board on which already a 40 GB segate baracuda harddisk is installed. Now I have bought a 160 GB segate baracuda harddisk and attached to it, formatted. But machine shows 127 GB in place of 160 GB. Whether it is hard disk fault or machine fault?

Regards,
Bijay

Hi Bijay.
Neither is at fault. Please click on this Seagate link:
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=How_To_Install_and_Troubleshoot_ATA_Hard_Drives&vgnextoid=559e5b1142aec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD
Scroll down to: Partitioning the drive in Windows XP / Windows 2000 (for systems where this is the 2nd drive in the system).
Follow the instruction on the web site.
This Seagate web site will help you setup the Seagate 160 drive.

If you feel the drive is still at fault you can run Seagate’s SeaTools. Click on the next link:
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
This software will check the 160GB drive.
(Follow the online instructions for), SeaTools for DOS.

In a Windows XP system & using a FAT 32 & a cluster size of 16kb instead of NTFS. Windows will see the total size of the drive but can only access 149GB of drive space. 11GB of drive space will be used by the FAT. File Allocation Table. The FAT is windows guide to every cluster on the drive.
XP uses NTFS & sets each cluster to 4kb. This 4kb size lowers the total usable GB size & uses more GB's for the FAT. You're 127GB size may be correct for a Win XP system using a NTFS file system. The FAT is using 33GB of drive space as a locator for every cluster on the 160GB drive.

Bijay if you are still having trouble understanding please post any questions here.

Good luck!
Mike

I am usubg 845 gvrs motherboard now I want to installed extra internal harddisk what will be ideal harddisk and size


The size of the hard disk depends upon what type of programs you are running and the amount of data you need to store.
Programs that create large amount of data are audio and video files.
The tpye of hard drive depends on what type of disk controller you have, it could be IDE or SATA disk controller, you need to check your computer's hard disk controller.
The average hard disk capacity is 160 Gb to 180 Gb and goes up to 1 Tb, but the largest capacity drive your cmputer can support will depend upon the BIOS.

845 GLLY Maximum Hard disk support


Try first to reformat the 40 GIG hard drive that you have since it still detected under BIOS so hopefully that can still be reformatted and still work after that, but if still have the same problem this 40GIG hard drive may have alot of bad sectors already , Sorry to say but the 200 gig of sata drive wonto work for this motherboard since it doesn't support SATA drive , you can get a 1600GIG of IDE drive for this, this is teh complete specs of your motherboard

Sound problem intel d 845 glly


Try going to device manager & look for any yellow exclamation marks or red x's especially on any sound device. If you have errors open up the devices properties and at the bottom under device status check to see if your device is working properly or not. Error messeges are in detail. If no problem there try adding on an external sound device to by pass the systems internal.

Maximum hard disk support


this hard drive size will work with your motherboard but the problem is the size will be detected only up to 130 GB or less, so if you will be using that size of hard drive you will just waste it.. so better use a 120 GB of hard drive or upgrade your motherboard so you can use a 250 GB.....

Hope that helps.............

Intel 845 glly board please solve the problem


Hi Nadeem Nawaz,

No board will show display without memory. Your motherboard must run memory type;
Two DIMM sockets supporting 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts.
Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only.
Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB.
Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only.

Intel link showing memory specifications.
Intel Desktop Board D845GLLY
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/cs-012825.htm

If your memory is within Intel's memory specifications & you are not getting display on your monitor. It is possible that the integerated on board graphics (Shown on page 13 in your user manual), may be defective.
You can add a PCI video card to the PC. The Intel D845GLLY will auto detect the PCI video card. No need to enter the bios & make changes.
Please keep this in mind. The integrated video card is PCI, if it has failed, there is a good chance it will not see the PCI add in video card. If you can find a used (Working) PCI video card to test in the PC.
