I run a pen'2 350Hz (fossilsed) computer, With 320 Mb ram (only 192Mb showing) and a 10.1 Gbt hard drive (only 9.6 Gbt showing partioned 2.6 and 7 Gbt) on win 98.

Would it be possible too and how would I tweek the bios set up so that all the ram and hard drive is useable.

I intending loading xp

Not sure how you get to 320 MB RAM as it normally comes in chunks of 128 MB or similar.

Do you have on-board graphics that could account for the difference?

The Ram is probably shared with graphics. usually it says at boot up if the ram check is on

XXXkk ok + xxM shared

where the xxm shared is for graphics

The Hard drive always looses a section when its formatted for the MBR (master boot record) I have a 120 gb drive and it shows 111gb total.

This is due to the fact that the 9gb are used to tell the drive where things are stored.

The memory could be 128 +128 + 64 = 320Mb.

Had to use the calculator.;-)

When the computer posts as Creature of the Nite says does it say 320Mb. One module may not be working. 128 + 64 = 192Mb.
