I've tried setting the LBA in the BIOS but mysteriously there is no BIOS setting for LBA on this Dell e1505. I tried the registry hack to flip LBA on in Windows. Currently, running Windows XP Media Edition. The new harddrive is a Hitachi 320g. Any suggestions?

Exactly how much space are you getting? –  Mr Alpha Mar 12 '11 at 23:38
XP sp1 or higher LBA 48bit is enabled by default, that model and bios will automatically select LBA 48bit also. You have another issue. Connect it to another PC to verify the size. –  Moab Mar 13 '11 at 3:14
