I have just installed a new hard drive in my computer with winxp home. The hd is 40 gb but only shows 3 gb.
Any ideas?

and see if the correct size drive is shown - if not try the autodetect option. If no joy you may have to flash the bios or buy a pci card that takes over the running of hard drives.

jumper settings? just a thought

I was thinking that to. Is there a second jumper on the back of the drive? This will be a cylinder limitation jumper

Have you formatted the drive?
