Answers :

When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

Yea your hard drive is alright. try to verify the jumper setting that limit the capacity. if ever there is non then hard drive providing only 300 GB instead 320 GB. Don't worry about that.
