    I have used XP before and was able to go to Administration Tools in Control Panel to partition and format a HD and other tasks.

    I installed XP on a DELL that I was given - I had to wipe the drive since it would NOT boot.

    As of now I have ONLY two options = Sound recorder and Volume Control

    NOWHERE else can I find any kind of tools to do any kind of work above with partitioning and formatting a HD, etc.
    I know I can use THIRD party software, but any idea WHY I have only two almost useless options ?
    I have no problems with other computers and have all kinds of options in Adminstration Tools.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try typing this
    Code:
    diskmgmt.msc
    at the run command.

    This
    Code:
    compmgmt.msc
    should actually get you the full computer managment console.
