Re: CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME I HAVE A 8GB HARDDRIVE PUT MY COMPAQ THINKS IT'S A 2GB HAS ANYONE GOT ANY IDEAS

Is this a result of changing your Hard Drive? If so, go to the Manufacturers Site and 'armed' with the product info, see if they have a jumper schematic. Maxtor Hard Drives (for example), have 4 jumper settings one for large drives and one for small drives then each having Master or Slave settings. When improperly set they read my 30Gig as if it were 8Gig. Caution: Don't wiggle or bend any pins while making changes.
