    I just upgraded my computer from a 2gig to an 8gig HHD. The BIOS sees the correct type, size and model but Windows ME doesn't. It sees 3 gig. How can I resolve this little problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    I formatted using a DOS startup disk and then installed Win98 then upgraded to Win ME from there. I don't remember FDISK'ing, is it important to do?
