    Thank you so much for your help. You're suggestion to download Space Monger did the trick. I found the problem immediately. My 8 yr old daughter scheduled to record her favorite show in Media Center. She managed to record every show since August. Space Monger allowed me to see that right away. You are the best. Thank you again.

There are 2 reasons for this. Either your drive is really full or it could be a filesystem glitch.

I would recommend a free program called "Space Monger" to give you a visual representation on what is filling up your hard drive.

If it is a filesystem problem, you need to run chkdsk. I recommend this periodically even when you are not having problems. Go to Start, Run, type in "cmd" and hit OK, type in "chkdsk C: /r /f" and hit enter on the keyboard to run a full hard drive check. This will require you to reboot your computer. Sit back, that will take a little while.

Hope this helps!

I charge the battery and mark it's full charge,but on the scooter the indicator don't mark is full charge and when you drive,the speed just suddenly will drop and come back ok.


Charging batteries to full means leave on charge for 12 -16 hours as it may show charged but the charger goes into what is called a battery conditioning mode where a small trickle charge takes place to fully charge batteries. Again, how old are batteries and have you had them load tested at all?

My Microsoft Office Word Enterprise 2007 is all of a sudden slow and "Not Responding" and I cannot open my word documents. I tried diagnostics etc. Help!


Have you tried cycling the power on your computer? Also check how much disc space you have left. Sounds like your hard drive might be getting full. You want at least 20% free hard drive space for best performance.

I know there is data on my phr-250a mcally external hard drive but it's showing empty folder


Leave it connected to your computer and try a restart.
If the folder is still showing as empty, power down the computer then disconnect the external drive.
Power on the computer and connect the external hard drive to a different usb port.
I had this exact problem with a 1000 Gb external drive that was full of movies and music. I thought it had all been lost .. After 2-3 days and repeated attempts of restarts and power-downs/different usb ports it suddenly was recognised again and has worked perfectly since

If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

Have used toolbox 5.0 regularly to scan film negs without a problem until today. Suddenly I get the message "unable to scan. Make sure that there is enough space on the target disk". What does this mean?


Either your hard drive is full, or the program is trying to save to a different drive (CD, flash drive) which doesn't have room for files.

If you're saving as TIF files you may have filled a lot of hard drive space, as they are much bigger than JPG files.

CD drawer won't open or close or recognize blank disc


Not very likely to be overheating. CD's don't really have drivers & if it was working OK then a firmware upgrade isn't needed. Full drive won't cause the problem.

Pretty much the drive has just died. If the motor runs when you hit the door button but the tray doesn't move - try *gently* pushing the door closed. If it doesn't go - new drive.

If the motor doesn't run when you push the button, you can check to see if the power cable somehow came off but that's extremely unlikely. Most probably you'll just have to get a new drive.

If you've been in the habit of pushing the tray to start it closing, stop!! That's the most common cause of your kind of problem. ALWAYS open and close with the button.

Good luck!

Lenovo Ideapad Y510 c drive full but d drive shows as empty


The cursor jump is probably because your arm or part of your hand is getting close to the touchpad.
I have the same problem.
You can toggle touchpad support by holding down the 'Fn' key and hitting 'F8'. (Fn+F8)
Don't forget to turn it back on when you want to move the mouse.

In regards to "local disk c:" being full. It sounds like your drive is partitioned into two logical drives.
You can use two methods in gaining space on C:.
The first option would be to move some of your documents from the C: partition to D:. (If you continue to save all of your files to C:, it will become full again.)
The second would be to re-size your C: partition using a tool such as "Partition Magic" in order to allocate some of the unused space on D: to C:. (This may take some time to complete. Make sure you are connected to AC power, you do not want your computer to go to standby or hibernate while changing partition sizes.)

Hope this helps.
