It could be that when you re-partitoned it you left some empty space out of the partition. Or are you looking at Ram- which is usually refered to as memory as opposed to Hard drive space. Which you can usually see by going to my computer and clicking on your Local C: Drive

How to resolve the memory low system


Hi Anon, this is Microsoft's answer to low memory messages, and I would only add the suggestion that you check for viruses and other unwanted programs hogging your computer's memory. How to prevent low memory problems Running fewer programs at one time can help prevent low memory problems and information loss. It's a good idea to observe which programs show signs of low memory conditions and try not to run them at the same time.
However, it's not always convenient or practical to run a limited number of programs. Signs of low memory can indicate that the computer needs more RAM to support the programs you use. Here are the recommended ways to solve or prevent low memory problems:
  • Increase the paging file (virtual memory) sizeWindows automatically attempts to increase the paging file size the first time your computer becomes low on memory, but you can also manually increase it up to a maximum size that is determined by the amount of RAM installed. Although increasing the paging file size can help prevent low memory problems, it can also make your programs run more slowly. Because your computer reads information from RAM much faster than from a hard disk (where the paging file is), making too much virtual memory available to programs will slow them down.
    For more information, see Change the size of virtual memory.
  • Install more RAM
    If you see signs of low memory, or if Windows warns you about a low memory problem, check the information that came with your computer or contact the computer manufacturer to determine which type of RAM is compatible with your computer, and then install more RAM. To install RAM, check the information provided by the manufacturer.
    For more information, see Find out how much RAM your computer has.
  • Determine if a program overuses memory
    If the computer becomes low on memory whenever you run certain programs, one or more of those programs might have a memory leak. To stop a memory leak, you need to close the program. To repair a memory leak, you need to check for updates for the program or contact the publisher of the software.
    To determine which program is using the most memory, follow these steps:
    1. Open Task Manager by right-clicking the taskbar, and then clicking Start Task Manager.
    2. Click the Processes tab.
    3. To sort programs by memory usage, click Memory (Private Working Set).
    You can also check for program errors and troubleshooting information using Event Viewer.
    1. Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clickingAdministrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. In the left pane, click Applications and Services Logs to view error events. To see a description of the problem, double-click the event. To see if troubleshooting information is available, look for a link to online Help.

Troubleshoot acer 5580 laptop when program and files are opened , it hangs


Some reason of hanging the laptop during opening a program is the low speed of the memory modules. But the main reason of this is the virus containing the files or programs. The best way to clear this is to reformat your laptop. You need to have an Windows CD and the installation CD of your laptop motherboard.

V750 won't recognize micro sd card i formatted the card on my pc it doesn't show up in the list under memory to open the second email link from fixya i was forced to press ACCEPT. this ended the session...


on your PC via your card reader, look at the properties of your MicroSD card: if is say that the format is RAW or NTFS, reformat it again but specify FAT32 with 'default' packet size.
Before you reformat the memory card. if applicable, make sure that you backup the content to your PC under a new folder.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Blue screen & windows error messages/reformat


Do a recovery first and if you are still getting a blue screen on this 1525 call dell and ask for a replacment do not go any further in trying to repair it yourself as anything you do would just make matters worse if its out of warrenty then the only thing you can do is try:

1. clean the unit if there is any dust
2. try new memory modules
3. run a memory diagnostic on it using windos diagnostics
4. recover the operating system.

I hope you have some good luck with this advice.

Did a reformat while pictures still on the memory.....


If you haven't done anything to the card since you formatted it, you stand a good chance. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

Memory low for unknown reason


when you reformated the drive you must not have deleted all partitions , otherwise you would have all the disc space minus the operating system , so check and make sure all partitions made were deleted and the full size of the disc is available for the new installation

External harddrive


yea this is a hard one you will need a recovery program something good that will go in deep and find all the shadow programs on your (HDD) Hard drive. if your computer does not recognize this HDD or memory stick this means u have reformatted a computer and the HDD or memory stick has been taken out half way through the format process. if you get a recovery program this means u will not get everything off it will only take the shadows of all your programs and files.

I hope this helps
