Set the start menu to show Administrative Tools with Settings-Taskbar and Start Menu-Start Menu Tab-Classic-Customize.
Start-Programs-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Storage-Disk Management.
There you should see your new 250gb drive, unpartitioned with no drive letter and unformatted. Partition new drive, format, name and assign letter and you are good to go, once done it should show in My Computer.
