Hard drive volumes are can be partitioned to adjust sizes.

The hard drive space that's available after device installation depends on two factors;

the actual manufactured size of the hard drive, and the number and size of the partitions created on the hard drive.

Partitioning a hard drive splits the total manufactured space into sections, each listed as a separate device by your computer's operating system.

It's used primarily as a method of turning larger hard drives into more manageable sections of storage.

There are times when the chosen partition size is no longer adequate to your needs.

You can quickly change the partition size of the drive using the administrative tools of your operating system when this occurs.

The data will remain intact and the newly sized partitions are instantly available for use.

Press the "Start" button located on the taskbar on the bottom of the Windows 7 desktop. Select the "Control Panel" from the Start menu to open the Control Panel window.

Type "administrative tools" into the search box of the Control Panel window.

Click on the Administrative Tools link revealed in the Control Panel window to open the Administrative Tools window.

Double-click on the "Computer Management" option listed among the Administrative Tools in the rightmost panel of the Administrative Tools window.

Select "Disk Management" in the Storage subcategory listed in the left panel of the window.

A display will appear listing all of the hard drives contained in your system and hard drive information, including the sizes of the current partitions contained on the drives as well as the available space of the drives.

Right-click on the drive partition you wish to change in the lower panel of the window. ''Choose a size option, either "Extend Volume" or "Shrink Volume."

Use "Extend Volume" to enlarge the size of the partition.

There is a limit to the maximum size of the partition, based on the amount of free space contained on the drive. Select "Shrink Volume" to shrink the size of a partition.

Select the new partition size and then select the "Enlarge" or "Shrink" button to complete the resizing process.

If you've already allocated all of your hard drive space to multiple partitions, you will have to shrink one partition on the drive in order to create free space for enlarging another partition.

The newly sized volume is immediately ready for use.

or you could use a third party software program,0.aspx



Hope this helps

My philips srp5107wm/17 only changes the volume on my tv no matter what device i have it set on

The Philips remote is set to "push trough" the volume/mute to the TV for devices that typically don't have a volume function. Older versions of Philips remote used to allow you to select the device to push volume to, but for some reason this is no longer available (or at least I haven't found out how to). So here is the solution I used.

Teach (learning function) the remote to use whatever device you like for volume/mute.

1, Press the button for the device you would like to change
2. Hold down "learn" and the button you want to teach ex. "volume up" until the red light comes on
3. Place the original remote of the device you would like to change the volume on 5-10 cm away from your Philips remote and press "volume up" for this example
4. Repeat these steps for the "volume down" and "mute" buttons
5. Repeat these steps for other devices you would like to "push through" volume/mute to a device other than TV

Hope this helps others. I did find that some devices like SAT may not allow you to change the volume/mute, but otherwise this workaround does the trick.

Volume settings not appering on screen

There are other ways to change the volume. You can probably change it by Pressing and Holding the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the appropriate volume key. The volume keys will have a little megaphone on them. There will be three of them, one to increase, decrease or mute the volume.

You can also change the volume by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Volume Control.

Also you can change the volume in the Control Panel by going to the Audio or Sound. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.

Ring volume keeps changing automatically

The ringer volume should only change if you are adjusting the volume using the rubber volume button on the outside of the phone.

If the volume is changing for any other reason, there may be an issue with your phone. Please call our Customer Service department at (800) 733-6632 for troubleshooting and assistance.

Volume&thinkpad button

Most IBM / Lenovo Thinkpads have hardware volume control with apropriate buttons above the keyboard (volume up, down and mute). Gnome in Ubuntu is configured in such a way, that the keypresses are trapped (this is correct), apropriate volume window is displayed (correct) and Gnome volume control is modified. Last step is actually wrong - the keys in Thinkpads control the volume hardware directly, so every keypress turns the volume up/down regardless of sound card settings (in Ubuntu case - this would be Alsa mixer). Current behaviour results in volume being changed twice - for example if I press the volume up button, I get volume reduction via Gnome sound mixer plus volume reduction via hardware control. Effectively this creates an exponential (and not linear as it should be) volume change. In short - it is very difficult to control volume, especially relatively quiet sounds, with volume keys only.
The "patch" solution is to decouple Gnome mixer from hardware buttons. Of course it could be done manually, by deleting apropriate key actions in System->Preferences->Keyboard shortcuts, but this also disables windows showing volume. A better thing (but more complex) would involve reading /proc/acpi/ibm/volume and displaying the volume window according to this value at each volume button keypress.
I tested this on T21, T42 and Thinkpad 600. I guess only some R series notebooks (R31 etc.) would not be affected, as these do not have hardware mixer.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Press hardware volume key (eg. volume up) on a Thinkpad
2. Observe the volume change - it is changed in hardware mixer (correct) and in Gnome volume control (incorrect)

I hope this helps...
