HI! Thanks 4 helping!

I made a mistake: it's not hardware, but HARD DISK :tazz:

BTW, I did not install anything: I just assembled the new hard disk in the PC and the PC found it automatically. Nevertheless a new letter (D:) did not appear in "My Computer", so I could not manage to use the new hard disk :)

see you later! :)

Howdy:

Go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management and click on Disk management..

Now, right click on the new hdd on the right side and select "format".. You may have to select "initialize" first..
