    why would you want to defrag the recovery drive, since its not useful, because that drive isnt used unless you try to recover your machine?

You do NOT need to defrag the recovery partition. The contents of that partition are most likely in a compressed form, and in any case, unchanging, so do not require a defrag. It's a good idea to leave the recovery partition absolutely alone.

For future reference, if you need to defragment a normal partition in low space conditions, try something advanced like Diskeeper 2008. Diskeeper is the best and most powerful defragmenter, and can defragment drives with even less than 5-10% free disk space. By comparison, the windows defragger requires atleast 15%, and yet does not defrag system files.

For it to have gotten to that point where only 4% space is left, something that uses that drive for a temp isnt cleaning out the temp files it places there. One thing that is known to do that to the recovery partition is Norton 360. If you cannot defragment it, then you need to back up all files you want to keep, then wipe out all your partitions and reinstall the OS ( OS disc needed & recovery discs needed).

Drive shows in device manager but not in my can not play anything

When this happens, the hardware is recognized but the drive has probably gone bad. I would recommend replacing the drive. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_ab0f421bee8048f7b0952c82e14fbd4d(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_2b0fb69882a443e693d3245e53a158c0(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

What kind of memory module can i add to increase my memory for a hp pavilion a305w. when I am playing games online it says virtual memory low..

Virtual Memory (or Paging File) is controlled on your computer and is actually space on your hard drive. In windows XP, go to START, right click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware Tab, select Settings under Performance. In the Advanced Tab, under Virtual Memory, select Change. Set the Paging File Size to "System Managed". Click Set>OK>OK>OK.

This error should go away now, unless your hard drive is getting full. Check to make sure that you have at least 25% free space on the hard drive where the Paging File is set up.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

Yes, it's possible to increase both RAM & HARD DRIVE Capacity.Your Pc comes with RAM: 512 MB in size and Storage (hard drive)Capacity: 80 GB.

You can put One more 512 MB of RAM or you can replacethe ealier RAm with 1GB RAM or Put two 1 GB RAM Instead.

For Hard Drive,use your 80 GB Hard drive as external storage device, and Put a 320 Gb new Hard drive.

How do I use the svideo or vag ports on my hp pavilion dv523 cl entertainment notebook. I want to hook my laptop to my panasonic plasma tv, but do not know how to turn these ports on

These ports should already be on with your operating system. The computer will recognize the device when it is plugged in to the port, it will sense the connection and open the device. You can then toggle the display to either the lcd thats built into the laptop or to the vga port or to the s-video etc. My computer uses the Fn key plus the F4 key, that toggles the video output choices.
