    I do have a external 360gb hard drive, but it's so slow!
    I can't afford a new hard drive!

  • Jon Cole Dec 08, 2008

    I have done these things yet it is still saying I have low disk space. I have checked how much space I am using for programs which total to 2.6GB and I don't hold anything else on my PC, because I only use it for games. It is now telling me I have 1.2GB of free disk space.

Add more hard disk to my gt5404 pc


Start with the basics, Defrag your hard-drive, run disk cleanup and run your antivirus to make sure your computer is not having any virus issues. Once you have the drive cleaned up and not infected with a virus, look at the amount of memory you have installed at this point. Your pc is rated for a max amount of:2 x 1024 MB DDR2, 533 MHz, (PC4200) dual channel memory (two 512 MB DIMMs) for a max of 2 gigs. If you have maxed your memory capacity, it would help to some degree to add another hard drive. This is just basic stuff to get you going for a low cost. There are other things you can try also; like, overclocking the CPU and other things like that. Good luck.

Low disk space


This couldn't be due to a malfunctioning fan, or any other hardware problem, it certainly sounds like a virus but it's hard to know. I advise using this guide t try and remove any viruses or malware.

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.

Menory low on harddrive a220n


If your disk space is low on the Hard Disk drive, delete or move some files off. You can replace the hard disk for 30-50 dollars with a larger one. If it is low on memory (RAM) you can add more up to the system limit from several sources.
Thanks

I have a dimensions 5150 and want to add more disk space. What is largest size hard disk i can add and is there a thickness issue to bear in mind


technically there is no specific size limit ..currently the max. avaiable for home use is 1.5TB ...(LARGEST) hard drive
your model can surely fit in 500 gb of disk space...(again it all depends if u would be needs so much ) i leave that for u to decide .
assuming to dont have big video cards , that may cramp the internal space , i am sure anything under 500 gig should easily fit in ...
good luck

I have a Compaq Presario F700 laptop. It was telling me I have low disk space on Presario_RD (D). I have already deleted alot files and programs and I have also did a disk cleanup and ran the disk...


"low disk space on Presario_RD (D)"
This looks like you are running low on disk space on your D: drive, not your C:. If you were deleting files and programs, I bet it was on C:
It is now very common for manufacturers to split the hard drive into 2 partitions, C: for everyday use and a smaller D: partition that hold recovery files to restore the computer to a factory install state. If your computer was set up this way, the D: is not suppose to be used but I have run into systems were backup programs are putting the backup files on D: and filling it up.
You need to find out what is writing to D: and stop it and then remove the files it placed there.
Be very careful with D:, if you remove the wrong files you may not be able to reinstall windows if you have a serious problem unless you have created recovery CDs.

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5720 laptop - it is less than a year old and it is showing the memory is full - the memory is meant to be 32 GB and from what I can see from the programme menus there is less than 4...


Hi j0shuatsb,
Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
Please run a full system virus scan.
Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
