Missing Memory

I recently upgraded my hard drive from 4 to 40 Gb. When i booted back up the new drive was recognised but it tells me i only have 8Gb not 40Gb I am running Windows98 on a MU440EX motherboard with a PII 266 processor and 160Mb of RAM. Any ideas please?

Your BIOS has a limit of 8Gb; to have more visible will require that the BIOS is updated. A risky business, but has to be done.

Whoops, meant to say,

has to be done with care and then should be ok.

Or indeed, look at the info posted by bremner.
