Hi

Do you have a 1 GB partition on a 2GB drive or a 1GB hard drive ?

assuming Windows O/S
go to Device Manager and see what it says about the hard disk,
Googling model number will show details about hard disk

Or Go to Computer Management then Disk Management

what you do next depends on results

either create extra partition in free space (2GB) (from Disk Management)

or ask seller to provide a 1GB drive ?

regards

Mike Barnes
