It may be that the back end of that hard drive has not been allocated, in which case you'll have to create a new partition. I recommend an extended partition, then logical drive (as that's how Windows does it if you set it up when first installing).
It will appear as a different disk under My Computer/ Windows Explorer, but that's actually a good thing. Save all your data on that logical drive (My Documents > Properties, choose Change Target) and if your installation of Windows goes corrupt, you can reinstall without losing those files.

1. Open Disk Management and select that large block of unallocated space.
2. Right click and choose "Create Partition", then follow the prompts and choose "Extended Partition" of the maximum allowable size (which should already be in the data field).
3. Select and right click again, this time choosing "Create Logical Drive", using maximum size again.
4. Right Click again and choose format (this may be offered in step 3, that's OK too). Due to the size of the partition (>32GB) it will have to be NTFS, you can also name it, I generally call it "Data" (and the first partition "Boot").
So there you are, you should now have your full 250GB to play with.
