My new system arrived today, it was pre assembled, all I had to do was install all the software. So I install XP PRo and Service Pack 2, but only 133 GB of the 750 GB spinpoint is being recognised still, is this a common problem and does anyone know if there's anythign I can do about it.

The origional version of XP that you used was pre-service pack 1 which does not support drives over 137 gig.
SP1 fixed this problem.
What you need to do is go into disk management, partition and format the rest of the drive.
