You can use a program like Acronis to make an image of the 18 GB drive and copy it to the 280 gb drive, then just remove the 18 GB drive.

You can download acronis from www.download.com

Hard disk c drive is full


You will have to re-do your software Operating Software Windows and install it to D: as the primary drive. Why not just do a good cleaning of the main drive send anything over to D: that can be saved there and free up the primary drive making more room even better. Use the D: as a saving and use to gather all your goodies and take them off of the drive get rid of any unwanted software. Do a good cleanup I'm sure you will find lots of room once you do that. Just a suggestion!
That is what I do I have one for the operating system only primary C: and the other for things I wish to save to it that is bigger than the primary since all I will be doing is using the space on C: to just run Windows. Then anything else I save I either burn to a disk, slap it on a USB Stick or send it to a free 5 gig service thus illuminating clogging of my drives.
Most people do this when saving stuff they want to keep they get it off the primary drive in case of a crash. Again just a suggestion. John

I replaced a 360Gb IDE drive on Thinkcentre S50 with 1Tb SATA. But when SATA is enabled in BIOS the CD drive is not recognised so cannot install any operating system on the SATA drive. Tried all...


i suspect that your problem is not in the bios, instead with jumpers.
IDE reqires jumpers on the back of drives to tell the computer how to use the drive. if you removed the 360 gig hdd (which was robably the primary drive) you will have to now make the disc drive primary.
However now there is a feture called "cable select" wich detects all hardware on the IDE controler and assigns them appropriate properties, this is a good way to do it because jumpers are a pain in the rear end

Maybe getting some of that stuff off of the C: drive will help. Windows needs 15% free drive space to run correctly. Going to a bigger drive is also an option. depends on how old the system is.

Fans run at full speed under normal task.


THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE CPU AND MB AND PSU IS NOT COOLING OFF ENOUGH AND CAUSING THE FAN TO RUN ON HIGH ALL THE TIME, THE PSU MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH WATTS POWER TO RUN THE CONFIGURATION TO KEEP THE SYSTEM AND HARDWARE TO COOL.

I READ IT IN ONE OF MY PC MAGAZINE, ANOTHER PERSON UPRADED SYSTEM, ADDED SOME OTHER STUFF BUT THE MB AND POWER SUPPLY UNIT DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH WATTS TO SUPPORT BASIC REQUIREMENTS OPERATING THE SYSTEM BASIC NEEDS.
FIND SOFTWARE THAT KEEPS EYE ON HEAT ISSUES, MB, VIDEO CARD, RAM, PS, CPU, CPU COOLERS, NIC CARDS, SOUND CARDS,
ETC.
EACH PART REQUIRES SO MUCH POWER
AND HERE HOW IT BRAKE DOWN FOR EACH COMPONET

MB 20-35+ WATTS
CD ROM 20-25 WATTS
DVD 30-45 WATTS
DISK DRIVE 5 WATTS
HD 5-15 WATTS
STANDARD VIDEO VARD 5-15 WATTS
MEMORY 5 WATTS PER MB

NEW SYSTEMS WITH THE FOLLOWING STUFF IN IT FLOPPY DRIVE,CD-ROM, MB, 16MB RAM, REQUIRES A MIN. 150 WATTS OF POWER.

BUT I KNOW YOU MAY HAVE TOP OF THE LINE VIDEO CARD WITH GGR4 WITH 512MB
MEMORY, 2-8 GIG OF RAM, 23 INCH LCD MONITOR, 2 500GB HD, BLUETOOTH AND WIRELESS NETORK, AND WIFI CAPABILITIES,
NEW DUAL CORE CPU TOP LINE MOTHERBOARD, COOLED VIDEO CARD,RAM COOLER ALSO AND THIS SYSTEM POWER WATTAGE REQUIREMENTS MAYBE SOME WHERE AROUND 400-600 WATT, AND MOST OF THAT IS FOR THE SYSTEM RAM AND THE VIDEO RAM YOU ARE RUNNING
REMEMBER 5 WATTS PER 1 MEGABYTE OF
RAM
IT WILL ADD UP FAST BOY'S AND GAL'S

ROD

PS I HOPE I DIDNT BORE ANYONE,
IT MAY SAVE YOUR SYSTEM FROM BURNING UP.

Sandisk 16 GB USB Drive wont accept large files says disk is full


What is the USB drive formatted as? Look in My Computer then right click the USB drive, select Properties. See what it says under "File System". My guess is the drive is formatted as FAT32. Now FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB for a single file, which would explain the error. To get over this you need to reformat the USB drive as NTFS. Then it will accept the 6.95GB file. You can format the drive by right clicking it again and selecting "Format" ... choose NTFS from the drop down menu. Be aware that any data already on the drive will be wiped by the format so be sure to back it up before formatting.

Need to replace Toshiba Satellite 4090 XDVD hard drive


Any Techie should be able to do this for you, or you can try it yourself IF YOU PROCEED CAREFULLY. The small plastic trim strip just above the left and right click bars must be popped out and the keyboard removed to access the hard drive. I bought a 60 gig Seagate to upgrade the 6 gig that was in it and did it myself in about an hour. You will need to have the restore disc to reinstall all the drivers and the DVD player software. Mine is also upgraded to Win XP Pro. Runs a tad slow as RAM is maxed out at 180 megs but operates fine otherwise and plays movies without skipping. Hope this helps.

Internal hd ata


If I am right on this one the 4600 can only take a 250gig hd But I was wondering if you could partion the HD to 236.7 gigs twice so the computer only recognizes the 236.7 gig hd you will see two drives in my computer once you do just format both partitions unless you have another hd and then you will see three drives just do the ones you installed or you may loose your operating system, I don't even know if that will work, but I think it is worth a try seems you already have the 500gig drive, can't hurt to try, I sure hope this help some what.,
