lost in space?

having had a lot of shutdown problems with windows ME I thought it best to format the hard drive. My 40gb HD was partitioned
into two halves C and D. So I decided to put it back the way it was before.I deleted drive D thinking that would make drive C 40gb again but no!! the space seems to have disappeard. I know it hasn't but can someone tell me where I went wrong.

you have just left yourself with unformatted space you need to go back and format the whole thing again if you just want 0ne 40g partition

I tried to do that but all it would do is format C which holds 20gb

That will not do it, you have to use FDISK and remove all the partitions then recreate a partition using the full HD space and make the partition active then shut computer down not restart, then restart and format C:

Thanks guys.
