  1. I recently installed XP professional. I also converted from Fat 32 to NTFS. I have a 2 gig hardrive but it is now say I have a 5 gig hardrive. Can I fix this? Should I?

    First your going to want to check to make SURE that the drive you have is what you think it is, 2gb.

    If this is true, make sure that the hard drive your using is properly set in BIOS. Auto works best for this.

    Check to make sure that it is properly set and that it actually IS a 2gb HD.

    If not, post back here for more help.

    I have gone into administrative tools and it shows I have a large portion of the drive unpartitioned.
