OS: windows 7 64 bit

HD: Samsung HD 102SJ ATA

The hd is 1T but it only shows 482 gigs. I checked my bios and it detects with 1T. I tried updating my drivers but nothing has worked.

In which tool do you see this? Windows Explorer or Disk Management?
Has the drive any partition made or is it blank?

If you have no data located on E: it could be quite easy.

So, if you are certain that nothing of value is on E:, you could delete the partition E: in Disk Management, then rightclick C: and choose Extend - and make sure it fills the entire disk.
