Question about Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook

1 Answer

Disc space Hello, I have recently had a 35 GB(D)hard added to my computor, because my (C) 35 GB was just about full (Acer Aspire). Now, I keep getting warnings saying my C drive is needing to free up more space to work efficiently (currently 154MG available). My question is how do I get the D drive to kick in as it has nothing on it. I copy a lot of ITunes music which I don't want to interfere with, so any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you, Drew

My acer netbook "D" drive is nearly full


Hello,

Go to your drive C:, right-click, scroll down to "properties".

An option will pop-out. Look towards the down part and select Compress...... Then click "this"< then "OK".

This will compress your hard-drive and give you more space.

I hope you understand this.

Good luck.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize full 320 Gigabytes of new PATA hard drive. It's always been running a 80 Gigabyte 4200 RPM but that drive is old...a 2005 HD. New WD320 only reads 137...


The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.
Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.
It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.

I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

It looks like there's a 500GB drive out there for it, so I'm going to guess you can at least go to 500.

Take a look at this. They guarantee 100% compatibility it seems:

Hello, I have Acer Aspire 4520 laptop, I tried to upgrade my HHD from 160 to 250...but I used the recovery disc that I created on the older System drive to the new one is it possible? the problem is, it...


The upgrade from one disk size to another is TONS easier if you were to clone the old hard drive. If you recover, EACH AND EVERY program will need to be reinstalled, and you will need to install all of your data.

Alura-tek makes a clone device, but it will take two steps, first clone, then you have to reallocate the unused space into your C:\ drive (or you will still be 160 GB).

Do you have good backups of all of your data? That has to happen first.

I have a acer aspire one and this pop-up keeps coming up saying 'out of virtual memory' - i dont know what to do. Also every hour or so my theme changes to classic (i have Windows XP) for about 5-10...


Virtual memory is the space the laptop uses on the hard drive to write to and read from. It usually is caused by running too many applications at once, thereby putting a greater demand on the free disc space you have,

Firstly, you need to check how much free disc space you have. Less than say 1 GB will flag up the issue ( depending how much virtual memory the computer is allocating). You need to remove some data from the hard drive and back it up to free some disc space

Then consider upgrading your ram to help you run more programmes at once if needed

Finally, consider getting an external usb drive to store data on, or upgrade your hard drive

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

Check disc makes the screen go blank


The disc check stopping and going to a blank screen, indicates a bad sector in the hard drive, and the drive will need replaced. If you can still use the machine by skipping the check disc, then you need to back up any files that you want to keep, eventually the hard drive will fail completely, if it hasn't already.
