Using all 200GB when only 137GB shown

  1. I built a complete new system w/200GB HDD. XP setup only allowed 137GB. I installed anyhow. Is there any way to get the rest of the hard drive space back w/o losing everything?

    First you have to figure out whether the 137GB limitation is caused by your hardware or software.

    You may need a BIOS update and/or enable 48-bit disk addressing in Windows.
    After that you can just create another partition after the one you already have.
