    Shivam,
    1.Update your system specs. This info will be assistance to us.
    2. Attach a copy of the output of DiskManagement. Be sure to maximize the display and slide the field separators so that all info is visible.

    [FONT=&quot]HOW TO FILL IN YOUR SYSTEM SPECS[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]

    Click on User CP (top left of PC Help Forum window) |
    Under Settings and Options (in column on left), Edit Options |
    Thread Display Options
    section |
    System Specs
    option, choose Yes |
    fill in as much info as possible |
    Scroll to bottom, SAVE CHANGES button

    You can use Speccy or SIW (links in my sig) to gather the info.

    HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY
    Run disk management:
    WIN | type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
    WIN
    is the key with the wavy flag.

    Maximize the output of Disk Management:
    ALT-Spacebar key combo (this pops up a menu) followed by X key (selects Maximize) |
    Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field. This is very important, otherwise, needed info is not visible.

    Make a snapshot:
    WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER | New
    Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
    File | Save as | select save location and name | Save

    Post the snapshot
