Default Re: Have i been screwed over here..

have you tried vista's partition tool to see if you have any un allocated space

click start

right click my computer click manage

click disk management on the left hand pane

look in the bottom pane to see how you hardrive is being used if there is some black unalocate space

right click your C: drive in the top pane and click extend volume

Have they pulled a fast one on me here or am i misinformed on what the computer shows me ?
For the Terabyte HDD, that is fairyl normal. 1TB equals 1024000MB and they just did 1000000MB. That would be around 900Giggers.

For the RAM, 3.25GB is rather weird. Are your stick 4x1GB?
