    I was trying to install a game and got a message that there was not enough drive space. I checked properties for c drive and I am using 800 MB. It says total capacity is only 1.99 GB. I have a 4.30 GB Hard drive. I can't figure out why I am missing over 2 GB's of space. I Hope someone has a idea. Thanks

    usually this is a bios problem. Older systems were unable to detect dives over 2 gig.
    You may need to "flash" the bios, that is upgrade it's software.
    This can be done from the bios manufacturer's web site, usually AMI or Pheonix.
    Other reasons is that the system is just getting it wrong. You can check the size by downloading fresh Diagnosis from http://www.freshdevices.com/ (It's free and has no spyware)

    Are you running win95 the first one has a limit of 2gb and there is no fix all you can do is fdisk the other part of the drive and let it go as a partion drive d the bios has nothing to do with this. flashing the bios is risky if you dont know what you are doing you could blow you mother board
