If you running XP on your system it only reconizes 131gb you would have to partition the rest. Unless you create a slipstream of your XP/SP2 you will only see 137gb although formatted would look like 129-130gb. To make the partition for the rest go to control panel>performance&maitenence>Admin tools>computer management then under computer management click storage>disk managment then at the bottom of the screen you should see your current format & the leftover space on the right hand side. Right click on it and create a partition.

If you want to do a easy slipstream so you don't have to create a parition and just want a full drive google autostreamer and download that.

it should reconise it as 180gb, especially since it did before. i have a 160gb hdd on my desktop and it shows up as 150gb or something (thats normal because you always have slightly under). do you have a program like partition magic? if so see what it shows up as in that
