problems with hard drive
Posted 16 July 2004 - 01:56 PM
and a 250gb sata, but it is only reading 127gb on both
drives and i can't get it to read the full 160 and 250. I
have had people tell me to download service pack 1, but i
have tried hundreds of times and it will not let me
download it, it says server not responding, but the
internet connection is perfectly fine. If anyone could
please help me it would be greatly appreciated. THANKS

My system was to old and I had to use a ATA card to fool my system in to believing the Hdd was within the range (Thus losing the difference)

"By default, the original release version of Windows XP Home Edition and of Windows XP Professional do not have 48-bit LBA support. Your computer must meet the following requirements to use 48-bit LBA ATAPI support:
48-bit LBA-compatible BIOS.
137-GB hard disk or larger.
You must have Windows XP SP1 installed."
Since you are having problems with Windows Update???, download the whole SP1a package (134 MB), go off line, close all programs incl antivirus and firewall etc and run that file. If that download is the problem ask one of your friends to download it and burn a CD.
Get SP1a here:
Don't forget to visit Windows Update after SP1 is installed and at least get all Critical Updates.
As always before "big" updates/upgrades backup important documents, pictures or whatever you can't live without.
