I found a very very old laptop in my garage (Acer Travelmate 613TXV) and I'm curious about how well it will work. My skills are above average but when I try to install Windows XP on it (on a 4 GB HDD from a friend) the laptop says that the HDD has 14000 MB and I can't format it.
I put the HDDon my laptop, formatted it, then made a partition. When I insert it in the old laptop it tells me that it has 14000 MB unallocated space and cannot be formatted.
Is there a hardware problem on that laptop? I installed Windows XP on older laptop than this and didn't have any problems.
In BIOS, the HDD is visible, but doesn't show the capacity of it.
