How many Hard drives do you have in the system total?

Download and install EVEREST
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.


PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

It looks like the drive has at least two partitions on it.

Go to
Start and then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and then click Enter
On Left Side scroll down and click on Disk Management

Make sure the window is opened up so you can see all the drives on the Left Side
Take a screenshot and include it in your next reply

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start
All Programs
Accessories
Paint
In the empty white area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your desktop

Your 80gb is partitioned in to the C and F drive.

rshaffer61, Is there a size jumper possibly on the drive? I have to run out so I can't research it.

If there is nothing on the drive the easiest way is delete both partitions in computer management and then reformat as 1 full drive.
If you have stuff that you do not want to lose, then you need to use a partitioning program to merge the partitions.
Common ones are Partition Magic, Partition Logic, Norton Ghost, and many more.

GOOGLE SEARCH for Software

NOTE: As always, backup the data as you can never tell if you will have a problem.
