Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3002LCi Notebook ?

Acer Aspire 3002 new hard drive 160GB only shows 128GB. Has all XP updates. Bios 3a32. How can I access lost GBs?


Answers :

Even though you've installed all updates you installed with an original XP CD with no service packs which can only be seen as 128Gig max. You could just use a disk partitioning program such as "Partition Magic" to resize the partition or you could make yourself a slipstreamed XP SP3 CD and reinstall from scratch and this will detect larger drives. Instructions are availabe for slipstreaming all over the internet. Hope this helps
On any computer you will never be able to use the full hard drive space, especially if the computer only has 1 Hard drive in it. The reason for this is due to the Operating system is installed on the harddrive, as well as all the drivers/updates/system tools. That seems like a little excessive amount of usage in your situation but it's not uncommon at all.
