Problems with Acer Aspire 4315

Hi,

I have the following problem with my Acer Asire 4315. It came with 80gb harddisk and 1 gb ram. However 40BG is reserved for back ups and is thereotically invisible. So I only have 40GB minus 25GB. And vista is taking a lot of GB even when surfing on internet.

My question: How to reopen this second D partition that is used by Acer Empowered Technology?

I hope you can give me a useful answer.

Regards

Mark Peters

    I still like to have my 80GB. The computer arrived with no Vista disk. What about buying an OEM Vista disk and back up my programs and drivers (if possible) and reinstall?



    Regards

Hi,

the backup partition, is used for system restore et,c.
You should really leave this intact.
Your options are, to purchase an additional external hard-drive.
Or to backup all drivers, used by the computer. Re-format the drive. setup the Vista software, if you have the Vista Software. Which is unlikely with a shop purchased computer.
you will then have the full sized partition, but no restore partition. Unless you use re-partitioning software after formatting the logical drive.

Hope this solves your dilema.

thankyou for using Fixya.

    Hi,

    that would be no problem, It,s essential to backup all the drivers.

    I,d also search the net, for Windows XP drivers. you,ll be better off with XP. ( your choice ) however if you purchase An oem, you may be able to use the machines Number on re-installation.

    takes less space on Hard-drive, only about 800mb.

    My son purchased an aspire recently, kept having problems with Vista, so he,s installed XP And XP drivers.

    Thankyou for rating this solution.



    If you need any further assistance, please ask.

Helo i am using acer 4315 and i increased ram to 1 gb with window 7 ,is any problem using windows 7 in my machine?


windows 7 will work on your machine but because of your graphics card you wont be able to run the aero part of windows and 1gb of ram is the minimum requirement for windows 7 that wont leave you with much ram left over to run other programs unfornutatly

Acer Aspire 4315, making noise near fan


You would need to open it, has the laptop been dropped? This is the only way I know that could cause this problem. I suggest you fix this problem because it will cause overheating of you chips, that will eventually cause failure. Opening a laptop is not for novice, unless you trust yourself you can do it, have it done in a shop that fixes laptops. Some electronic shop can do this for you at a resonable price.

Upgrade for acer aspire 4315


Hi, best and fastest way to increase your laptop speed is upgrading RAM to 4 Gigs, using 2x2Gb RAM modules like this one (UK seller).
Adding a bigger hard drive won't increase laptop speed, but will give you more space to store your files.
Another way to speed up a computer is using CPU overclocking, but this operation, good on old computers, is not worth on a computer with new CPU like yours.
On you tube also some user posted videos on how to upgrade chips on motherboard of old Acer aspire, but I suggest not trying this, as risk to destroy laptop is very high, and it is generally not worth.
Better to stick with traditional upgrades.
