I have a mesh computer bought in Feb 02. The processor and motherboard were upgraded in June 03 to an Asus A7N8X motherboard And an Athlon 2400. At present it uses an 80 GB main drive. I would like to upgrade this to 160GB but I understand I may be limited to 137 GB. How can I find out if this is so. Is there a way round it if this limit applies.
I would suggest you fit a new drive as Slave to the Old one. So that your Restore disc's will still work. You can move some of the stuff of your 80gb drive to the new drive but programs would have to be uninstalled and then reinstalled if you want to use the new drive for some programs, they will still put some info on the main old drive as they still have to write the registry and load dll's to System32
