Not enough storage space on my computer


Whatever version of Windows you're using, in the view you're most comfortable with (Explorer, My Computer, Disk Manager, etc) right-click on your local hard drive(s) C: D: etc and select [Properties]. The very first tab, [General] should bring up information showing the space on the drive and a button labelled "Disk Cleanup". Click on that, follow the prompts as needed to select items to remove from your hard drive. You'l probably see that Temp files, temporary internet files and recycle bin files are taking up a lot of space. These are safe to remove.
After that's done, in the same "Local Drive" properties window, the "Tools" tab will have a button for [Defragment Now]. Normally, Windows 7 and later defrag in the background but since you've performed a large file deletion a manual defrag is a good idea.

If you just need more storage space for files there are more specific options available for your PC. Could be simple as adding an external hard drive or check the Dell support site for upgrading the internal HDD on your computer.

Why do the videos go to internal instead of external memory?


try to do this.
1. check if your memory card is formatted using your phone formatting utility. if not, back up the files on your memory card to your computer and reinsert it to your phone and have it formatted there ( don't format your memory card from pc this is not a good idea for it).this is also a cause or one of the reasons why the files, even if you save to memory card will add to your phone internal folders. the memory card needs to adapt the phone internal first before you can use them.

to answer your question,
converting videos are not only the issues for samsung, other brands and models as well. not all video codecs are supported by 1 phone. if the manufacturers will install all the codecs for a phone player, they should install first a prom that is large enough to hold them. it's never easy huh, but look on the other side, you will learn how to convert videos not only on 1 file extensions but for many. :-)

now, to transfer files, check your phone pc connection settings, do these by selecting menu, phone settings, pc connections, and enable ask on connection, at least you can select whether you want to connect it by pc suite or by memory card. select memory card, at least on that way, you will know that your are transferring and copying files from you phone memory card to your pc and vise versa. once you had formatted your memory card, you can see the same folder as you have on your phone internals. you can easily drag and drop files.

adding videos to your internal phone, i don't believe you need to do that, but for ringing tones and alarms, the phone will immediately add them to you internal folders once you had assigned them. try going to your my files folder, and check for the files, filter them by phone and memory card. you can see the drop down list at right top hand corner of your phone and check it there if the files are there in your memory card, you don't need to copy it to phone memory. you can access the files there.
just select the files and select more for more options.

regards.

Unable to boot system and repair feature will not run. Also, there are no restore points (files). However I can get into the cmd prompt mode. Safe mode does not work. System is a Toshiba Satellite...


Hi there!
Well it seems that you are in a bad situation my friend. So let me help you out.
It seems that your system files are corrupt & preventing it to go to windows (may be due to improper shut-down).

What to do?
Please remove the hard disk from your laptop, put it in an external 2.5" casing. Then plug it to another laptop or pc having a good anti-virus. Now switch on the other computer. The system will correct the files on boot. If this doesn't happen, go to my computer after boot. Locate the HDD in my computer \ your HDD \ properties \ tools \
Here you'll run chkdisk & scan for errors, bad sectors etc. After that scan for any virus in that HDD. Now back up your important stuffs & send it to your DATA partition.
Now shutdown laptop & remove the HDD from the casing, then put it back in your laptop. Now boot & see your problems solved.
Please send us your feedback & vote to motivate us.Thanks.

Free space of Intel Centrino Duo is lessening


Any anti airus program will use more and more disk space as time goes on. Every time it updates, it gets more virus information. Also, if you use the internet, you will get cookies and junk from every site you go to. Under tools-internet options, clear everything off when you get done with the internet. Anything you add to your computer and then remove, leaves a lot of info. in the registry files. Ge a registry cleaner and run it. It will not only get rid of a lot of junk, it will also help your computer run faster. There is NO way to keep your hard drive from geting less and less space as time rolls on, other than removing a lot of stuff.
Get AVAST AntiVirus. It's free and just as good as the ones you pay a lot of money for. It also updates automatically.

LAPTOP TELL ME i HAVE LOW DISK SPACE


This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

Bought a floor sample, a few simple questions, please help!


Most new VAIO's do not come with any recovery CD or DVD what so ever.

The Vista installation has a recovery on the Hard Drive, so the use is welcome to create his own backup and recovery CD's. SONY tech support will probably tell you the same.

As you use windows, it will create it's own recovery points, which will also be stored on the Hard Drive, eating up some space. This is normal unless you turn off this Windows feature.

Also, did you delete files or did they just end up in the File Trash Bin ?
Clean out the file trash bin from time to time to free up some of the HD space.

Hope this helps

More Hard Drive Space needed


well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

for the RAM, i personally recommend getting the exact same RAM that you have right now, that is because of stability and compatibility. some issues may occur when you use generic plus branded.
