what is the best solution for em350 hang up?


Hello,
Usually when a laptop is freezing it is due to over-heating or operating system problems.

To help with over heating you can:
- Remove the bottom panels from your laptop and used compressed air to clean / free the fans.
- Get a laptop stand that does not obstruct the in-take / out-take for the air flow.
- Some people recommend laptop cooling pads.

Please let me know if this helps.

5gb drive


5Gb of HDD space ids just enough for an Operating System with Internet Applications.
You could run Windows XP smoothly on that capacity.
To keep the temporarily storage and cache as low as possible it's better to let Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox clear the temp. folder & cache once a few days.
