The Hard Drive went Click, Click, Click, a short time after I upgraded the Ram,
The Hard Drive is a Maxtor Model 4D060H3 and therefore is charted as having 61.4GB,

You need to drill down a little more.

Click on the Plus Sign next to Components, then again with the Plus Sign next to Storage and finally Disks.

You should see it just like this:


Description Disk drive
Manufacturer (Standard disk drives)
Model WDC WD400BD-60LRA0
Bytes/Sector 512
Media Loaded Yes
Media Type Fixed hard disk media
Partitions 1
SCSI Bus 0
SCSI Logical Unit 0
SCSI Port 1
SCSI Target ID 0
Sectors/Track 63
Size 37.27 GB (40,015,987,200 bytes)
Total Cylinders 4,865
Total Sectors 78,156,225
Total Tracks 1,240,575
Tracks/Cylinder 255
Partition Disk #0, Partition #0
Partition Size 37.26 GB (40,007,729,664 bytes)
Partition Starting Offset 32,256 bytes



I this what you needed to see?
