Hi.

Basically all you have to do is go to the storage drive, have a look through it, decide what you don't want and drag the ones you don't want to the recycle bin, that will clear space for you. Also empty the recycle by right clicking on it then select empty recycle bin.


Regards.

SOURCE: What about this Dell Vostro 1000 battery

the seller looks ok ...the things to look for is first to be new..no refurbished ,,second try to buy it not formated and do it yourself by charging it for about 12 hours ..and completely empty it for a few times...than see that for the same model of laptop can be more than one model of battery ..different on tha size and so with charge life time bigger or smaller....I will go for a midle size if available ...and use two of them ...to increse independence from the sourse..a much to big one might be inconvenient ...and of course one original is to be prefered on a copy or one that just fits...
the UK site is an excelent choice ...stay away from chinese stuff and cheap deals..

if i read this right, when you power up the laptop you get fan spin but no display ?, if you just get fan spin and the green power light and nothing else the you have a motherboard failure, if you get LED activity and it seems to be working but you only have no display the its more likely LCD failure, if you DO get activity try this : power off the system, press power button while holding down the D key, this will run the LCD BIST SELF TEST which will run through full colour screens if fails this test you will et a beep code, please bear in mind you will only be able to run that test if you get LED activity, if you dont have activity then the motherboard needs replacing

Only Dell will be able to supply a replacement Dell motherboard.
Telephone Dell, and ask for Technical Support, to find the part-number and the (HIGH!) cost.

What does it mean when it says storage space running


there are 2 kinds of memory on a phone 1 that is used while the phone is on to hold information that is needed quickly and the other that stores information like media, files and applications.

the first memory is used on running apps and the phone itself, making sure all the systems you installed are ready to use with the defaults and personal setting on standby or automated.

the second is passive storage and this usually holds everything you have ever downloaded or installed on the phone. this space is a premium so there is commonly a micro sd card to give you more space for things like your pictures and music.

no your cryptic question. "what does it mean when it says storage space running". im not sure if this is the start of a jock like it is what happens when someone steals your phone or whatever but i think it is serious. you could of forgot the ending or ran out of space, i dont know. you could have wanted to put "running out?" in which case this would mean 1 of 2 things the first memory is running low and you have too many applications aka games on your phone and they are all wanting your attention and waiting and giving you notifications and stuff. 2. the second memory could be near full and you should backup you files on a device like a harddrive or dvd or pc or something and delete it off your phone. all this can be managed with a application that can be installed on your phone called. ccleaner. by prifirim or something strange like that. completely safe. just read the setting and you wont delete anything you want on the phone still. like maybe visited sites or form history so that you dont have to put your name back into websites or something. well this is getting kinda long and if you have any more questions or i misinterpreted this one reply and let me know so that you get closure.

If it's almost full and you've been moving stuff to an external, sounds like you really need a bigger hard drive.

You've only got three options:
1) Buy a bigger hard drive
2) Move stuff to the external then delete it off the laptop
3) Delete things off the laptop such as programs you don't use and files .
Make sure you empty your recycle bin, it can hold a lot of junk

Camera on standby phone memory full whats a sollution


Hi there,

The phone camera can only function when there is available storage for the image(s). So once it if full, the initial storage location is full, then you do have to create space for new images to be stored before the camera can function properly again.

If your phone doesnt have a memory slot, the means that you are limited to the memory size you use, which is your phone memory.
The solution here is to delete some data on your phone, or transfer it to another device. Then restart your camera.

If your phone has a memory slot, but your dont have a micro SD card in it, get one, then start your camera, go to settings, and change the storage to memory card.

If you already have a memory card, and it is not full yet, it means your camera is storing the images on the phone. Go to settings when you turn on the camera, and change the storage location to memory card.

But if you have a memory card, and it is full, you would have to delete some items to create space.

I hope one or more of the instances was helpful to you?
Have a nice day.

My D: drive is 99% full how do I free up disk space ?


Music, video and pictures use the most hard drive space. Store them on a disc or on line storage site. After the delete or removing as advised, defrag you hard drive. This should free up space. Get rid of any programs you don't use. As long as you don't delete hidden files you should be fine. Hope this helps. If you are using windows XP go to start, control panel add and remove programs and delete only the programs that you installed and remove only them.

Memory is Full


I think, you have tried an online firmware update. Please let it finish. Memory full does not always means the storage is full. At technical world, memory actually means the Ram. You must not keep open many programs. Please try closing them to get free memory.

Unnecessarily opened programs take the memory.

Acer Travelmate 2300 memory all used


Disk space is not RAM.
RAM is a memory where operating system and software keeps their current state.
All disk space used is a message about the harddrive on your laptop.
You will have to buy bigger harddrive and change it (you will have to move or reinstall system) or buy an external USB harddrive and move some data onto it keeping the original system in place.
