Problem in hard drive

I am using a samsung hard drive (size 40 GB),since last 4 yrs. Now,while working it suddenly hangs-up & there is no option left except to turn off the UPS as because neither mouse nor keyboard works. Sometimes, when i turn off the UPS, the computer doesn't turn off. one of my friend advice me to scan the hard drive completely with a new antivirus. I did so. While scaning, I found three virus, in which one was TORJEN HORSE. Then I fully format me hard drive. & re-loaded WINDOWS XP2. But, the problem still preavailing in the computer. Please, reply soon.

Serial no 359146794305 what is its capacity

Microsoft has shipped numerous variations of the Xbox 360, with the major difference between each one being the hard drive size. As a result, your Xbox 360 can have a hard drive size as low as 4 GB and as high as 250 GB. If you're unsure of the size of your Xbox 360's hard drive, or just want to see how much space is remaining on it, you can check from the Device Options screen. This screen is accessible from the Xbox 360 dashboard when using any Gamertag.
Step 1 Select the "Settings" tab from your Xbox 360's dashboard.
Step 2 Select "System" and select "Storage" from the onscreen list.
Step 3 Highlight your hard drive from the onscreen list. By default the name of the hard drive is "Hard Drive."
Step 4 Press "Y" on the Xbox 360 controller to access the Device Options screen. The right side of the screen lists both the overall size of your hard drive under "Capacity" and the remaining amount of space under "Free Space."

  • From the Device Options screen you can also give your hard drive a custom name, clear the system cache or transfer content to another memory device.

How do I make 4 partition on a 40GB hard disc. What are the proceedings.

Boot up with the Windows XP installation CD
Follow the screen instructions -
Delete the existing Partition.
Create a new Partition (1st) but do not make it the maximum partition size - enter 1/4 of the maximum size.
Create another Partition (2nd) make this the same size as the 1st Create another Partition.(3rd) make this the same size as the 1st
Create another Partition (4th) make this the remaining max. size.
Format the Ist Partition Full NTSF (not quick format)
You can now proceed to install Windows on the 1st Partition.
After Windows XP has been installed and the computer's device drivers, go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Disk Management then allocate a drive letter to each of the Partitions then NTFS Format each of the Partitions.
Now each of the Partitions should indicated as Healthy.

Ok a 60 gb has a chrome finish which instantly differs from the 40 gb .

The 60 gb also has 4 usb ports and a card reader slot on top that opens.. also 80 gb untis were made much later..
Open the hard drive and look on drive and it should tell you what size it is!

Three possible reasons:
1. Your IDE cable is defective or is not seated/plug in correctly. Try to replace or re-seat/re-insert;
2. The on-board disk management of the hard disk is corrupted/defective. There is no remedy except to replace the PCboard or the entire hard disk;
3. Your motherboard BIOS/CMOS needs to be flashed and/or something is wrong with the IDE interface.

Of the 3, # 1 is the most common.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

good luck and kind regards.
