If your motherboard did not initialy support 2 tb drives and over time there was a bios update that fixed that then yes you may need an update. How old is the motherboard ?
Is the 2 tb drive the only drive in the computer or is it a second drive ?

When you said earlier that it was hanging , at what point was it hanging ? Are you still using the 160 gb drive as the OS drive ?

for 10 to 15 minutes it works really well.... when i start using internet or copying data it hangs...
right now i m using 160 gb as OS...
earlier i had made 2 TB hdd as OS but it was not working properly so switched to 160 gb again...

I AM NOT USING BOTH HDD TOGETHER..... because it hangs also when i use both together...

Well then an option for you to consider is to use the smaller hard drive and boot into Windows and mak the 2 tb drive into two partitions and you can actually use it as two drives and maybe that will stop the computer from hanging.
