It's not seeing the drive, did you make any changes in the time between when it worked and when stoped? if not roll it back a day sounds more like a trojen or a usb problem, if it worked two days ago then just restore to then, sometimes the easy way is best, or you have to troubleshoot your entire machine, from what just be a MSFT update it took and didn't sit well with

When i play game then my pc is hang


If your Computer hangs or Freezes up, it means:

You have too Little Ram. You need to Increase Your Ram to 3 or 4 GB. You Ram Controls How Fast Your Computer Processes Applications Including Game Software.

If After Updating Your Ram to More than 3 GB, You Continue to Experience the Freeze, You can Perform a System Restore (System Recovery for XP) and Restore Your Computer to the Same Condition as if You Just Bought it. However, I would Highly Recommend that you Save all Pictures, Music, Documents, Videos, Games Etc. on a 500 GB Seagate External Hard Drive, and then perform the System Recovery. Otherwise all Your Files will be LOST!

Sounds like you might have a missing boot manager; but without a restore disc, there is no easy way to fix this. I would download Ubuntu, a live OS, burn to a CD, insert it into the laptop, and boot into it. Then, you should be able to recover your files by dragging them to an external drive. If there are no files; its also possible the drive failed, and the data is lost.
Either way, ensure that there is currently no CD or external harddrive connect while booting, which can sometimes cause those symptoms.

My Acer 5315 Data as only 3.01Gb free of 32.5 Gb do I need a New Hard Drive to get more Ram


More RAM will not help because your RAM is temporary memory. You can uninstall the software you dont use or backup your documents/pictures/music to an external source and delete them from your hard drive. Another option is to use the Disk Cleanup utility to rid your system of temporary files that are taking up space or get an external hard drive to backup your files to.

Question about transferring files from computer hard drive.


Is your other drive an external or an internal drive??? If external then attach it to the USB port and see it as an additional drive in My Computer. Then you can use it as any other drive.
If an internal drive then you will have to purchase an adapter that can take this drive and get connected to the PC/laptop to through the USB port. Again visible on My Computer as additional drive and can be used such.

To free hard disk space


is the 100Gb divided into 2 partition?
since you have done the show all folder and files. and nothing else show up. you can do a defreg. to compress the drive. you may have lots of fragmented files. (that account for the lost space).

Hard disk space


Do you keep losing 1 to 2 gb / per restart? if so it may be a malicious code/virus. The only thought i can see is that the Nokia PC Suite/ Driver can just use 1 to 2 gb. Just as the Microsoft Office Suite uses around 1 to 2 GB. Hope this helps! get back to me :]

External hard drive


I'm not overly familiar with Vista yet, but I believe that you will have to delete these as administrator. Use the Vista help menu, you'll find it there. If it's a program file you will need to uninstall, versus delete, from the add/remove programs in the control panel.
