Maybe i can. First thing is how old is your pc? Usually this can be corrected in the bios by auto detection of hard drive. There should be this option in the main menu. If you have a older pc it may not be able to detect it.

3 months internet was behaving strange so i formatted but now i think it might be a heat problem i have looked in the bios and it shows the right size but on "my computer"it shows only 18Gb
mobo = msi kt4v
cpu = athlon xp 2200
mem = 256 ddr
