Get hold of a live Linux CD like the GParted one and then delete S:\ drive (Probably hdb depending on how the partitioning was first done) then expand the remaining partition.

Some Hard Drives come with in-built rom chips that make the hard-drive partition itself so check the HDD manual or maufacturers website. What make of HDD is it anyway?
Hope this was helpful.

Big mistake to only have one partition. Your system crashes & everything is lost.

Put your OS on drive C: Ptn1 Primary. Keep it small, about 12gb so that it is quick to back up with an image file ( Acronis, Norton, Paragon). Divide the rest of space into logical partitions for you Data, Games, Work etc. You can then back them up with an Image as you wish. This way if your system crashes you can restore it in the time it takes to have a cup of coffee!

Direct your "My Documents" folder on C: to an alternative on another partition. I have a folder called "My Data" on drive F:
