Default Small problem... need some help

hey everyone i just recently built a new rig which i am very happy with... but one thing that i notice is that i bought a Seagate 250gb hard drive from newegg... most definitely sure its 250gb because it says so itself on the hd.. but i notice that when i look into My Computer it only read up to 127gb.. why is that? did i do something wrong when installing windows? i am very new to all this so ill gladly appreciate it if you guys can help me out

go download http://www.soft32.com/download_151.html but got the full version on torrent, then like ace said go in your management and he was right you will see more space, and i can 100% grantuee you should see more space, well, get the program and wack them into one big G, then you will see

Like go in partion and well if your smart enough you will know what to do, just read it, bascally get your spare unpartioned space and bind it on with the other and it will say something like 245ghz space free.

i suck at spelling im wrecked over here but anyway goodluck chuck

No.

It shouldn't be partitioned if its a new drive anyway. But you shouldn't be losing that much space either
