Hiya- Does the new hard drive show when you boot, as the capacity in Megabytes it is supposed to have? Normally, there is somewhat less than the actual total- but it should be pretty close
say, 19000MBs for a 20.5 gig drive....
Can you see the drive in My Computer when you open that?
What does it have for capacity, free and used space, there?
When you installed Windows> were you using a plain Microsoft CD, or some sort of Restore CD?
What if any, is the name brand of the computer?
Do you have any disk for your motherboard, the chipset drivers, onboard chip drivers, etc?
If you have it, please give the motherboard make and model.
