Is the drives full size recognised correctly in the bios?

dsenette: I don't know how to go and get rid of this stuff.
alphaethan: I don't know how to flash the bios, but really I heard it is hard to do. All other drivers are up to date, no conflicts in my device manager, and nothing is disabled (besides my SCSI Disk Device, which I don't have).\
EDIT: I have a ASUS A7V8X motherboard with a VIA KT400 Chipset DDR400.

Go into the bios->main, highlight the primary master entry and press enter. You should then see the drive capacity listed. If the size is correct, then your bios is 48-bit compatible.
Also check the jumpers on the rear of the drive. Some drives have a size clip jumper than forces the system to recognise only part of the total drive capacity.

Next thing to try is go into control panel->administrative tools->computer management->disk management
Have a look in there to see if the remaining 80GB of hard drive is recognised as unpartitioned space or whether XP thinks the drive is only 130GB in size.
Also, have a read through this article :
Its easier than me trying to explain it all & you may find it useful.

Failing that, then creating a second partition in the unallocated space will work.
