    I purchased a new ssystem with 2.66Ghz dual processor and D101 motherboard. In my system I' able to see only 16GB. Where the remaining 64GB gone in my hard disk. Can anyone suggest how to get remaining hard disk space?

    How many partitions do you have?
    Maybe the 64 gb is unformatted space. To check, do this -

    In winxp - in control panel, goto administrative tools > computer management.
    Then choose disk management and see if there's an "unformatted space" or something similar in wording.
    If there is, format it.
    If not, do what wizrulz said.
