I find a good way to make my computer faster is to run a Disk Defragmenton the program "Disk Defragmenter", it takes a bit of time to sort all your files out but i fins that it makes my computer run a lot smoother after it. :)

After system recovery of my sony Vaio PCV-RS510, I did a Vaio updates and now computer will not boot. None of the buttons or keys working. Displaying "Sony" only.


If you have an install disc boot to it, restart your PC hold down F12 and select the CD/DVD Drive. If it boots to disc, go to the command prompt then run SFC /scannow. This will run the system file checker and repair your files as well.

How To Clean Up Your Computer


Everything in life needs maintenance, and your computer is no different. Everything you do and see on your computer takes up space. Over time, heavy use can start to weigh it down and make your pc run slow. What can you do when your computer becomes cluttered and slow? That's easy! You can clean it up and reorganize the stored files for optimal performance.<br /> <br /> The first thing to do to clean up your pc is to run "disk cleanup". Disk cleanup is a program that deletes clutter and creates more useable memory. If you are using Windows Xp, you can find disk clean up by clicking on "start", then "programs" and "accessories". Then slide over to "system tools" and click on "disk cleanup".<br /> <br /> After clicking on disk cleanup, your computer will display a message that says it is calculating how much space can be recovered on your "C" drive. When it is finished, you will see a screen that shows choices of files in which to purge on the left and the "ok" button on the bottom. Click on every box that is available and choose ok to begin cleaning your disk.<br /> <br /> This process can take a while, depending on how long it has been since the last time you cleaned your computer. When its finished, the program will have removed all unnecessary files to free more memory space. But we are not done yet! There is still one more program to run the complete the process and leave your computer running at its best. That program is called "disk defragmentor" and its found in the same place as disk cleanup.<br /> <br /> To run disk defragmentor, click on "start", "programs" find "accessories" and then choose "system tools". Click on disk defragmentor and a window will open asking which drive you wish to defragmentate. Choose your "C" drive and then click "ok" or "defrag" at the bottom.<br /> <br /> Disk defragmentor reorganizes files to bring all of your free space to the front of the drive where it is needed most. <br /> <br /> Running both of these programs once every couple of weeks will keep your computer at its best.

Adding more hard space


If you are running out of hard disk space you need to do disk maintenance to recover lost disk space.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

If you still need more disk space you can add another hard disk to your computer as a slave hard drive. You can move your data to this new hard drive and free up disk space on your C Drive.

My Sony Vaio PCV RZ 30GN2, "C" Drive is full. The "D" Drive is only half full. So, my question is: 1) Are the "C" and "D" drives only logical drives created by...


To check to see if you have one or two hard drives, go to the BIOS, if the BIOS detects one hard drive then your hard drive has two partitions which is the C and D drives.
To create a single partition C drive or make the C driver larger size and the D driver by a equal smaller size then you need a program like Partition Magic.

I repeatedly get Program not responding messages


Not much to go on here. Are you asking for condolences, or what to do about it? This message is caused generally by your machine having run out of resources. That could be swap file space, due to having run out of room on your hard drive, or swap file size set too small. Graphics card insufficient for what you are trying to do, especially if it is an on-board graphics card. Mostly due to not enough RAM installed. RAM chips are cheaper than they have ever been. See how much is in your machine, and then max it out by adding RAM up to the capacity of your motherboard. Temporary fix is try running less applications at one time, defrag your hard drive, add a program such as Advanced Windows Care (FREE on the net) and use it to maintain your registry, I would go for the RAM upgrade.
