Tell me about your motherboard chipset drivers. Version, etc.
I have just replaced my dead hard drive with one of 250gb.
I performed a clean install of xp pro, and accepted the default partition size of about 131gb.
After installing sp2, and all the microsoft updates, I now want to create a d: drive in the remaining space, trouble is, there isn't any!
My bios recognises the disk as 250gb, but both the disk management tool, and the diskpart utility from my xp disk, are not showing the unused space.
Last time, I used partition magic to create the new partition, and readers of my previous thread will know the problems I had!
Not wanting to make the same mistake twice, how do I now create my 120gb D: in the missing space ?
Motherboard is GA-7DXR+, with latest drivers from http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=1303&ProductName=GA-7DXR+
Hard Disk is western digital 250gb ide.
If i boot into bios, disk is recogised as 250gb.
Service pack 2 and all microsoft updates are installed.
And no, I can't scroll to the right to see the rest of the disk !!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
