Hard drive only has 400k free space left

Originally purchased from used laptops.com, programed with windows 98se. Had a earthlink account, but got rid of it. Some of it remained, I manually and with a earthlink disc got rid of it. for some reason computor wasn't being used and cmos battery went dead, I replaced it and it came on. I installed a wireless card and program, then up;graded to windows xp pro. problem is with all the changes the hard drive is filling up. when i defrag it shows alot files that are incomplete or fragmented (about 15 or so) How can i get rid of old compressed file folders that no longer run in computer?

This laptop is very slow


Slowness in the laptop can be due to many reasons. You may upgrade your processor( to i5 or i7), but that will be too costly. Try increasing the RAM of your laptop. Also don't overflow your hard drive. Decrease in free space on your hard drive will ultimately slow down your laptop.

Not enough memory


If you have low memory (RAM) then install more RAM.
If you have low memory (hard disk space) the delete unwanted data files and uninstall unwanted programs.
ALSO
Carry out HARD DISK MAINTENANCE
Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive. Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

My laptop is in low disk space it was very lag


It would be wise to buy an external Hard Drive and transfer some files to it (especially pictures, video, music that you don't need often).

The laptop boots very very slow


Some of the things that could affect your laptop from booting up are the start up programs e.g. skype, limewire, windows live messenger etc. I recommend checking there first to ensure you don't have programs that automatically start up as they slow up the process. Your antivirus (if you have one) sometimes slows up the process as well as it does a pre-scan before and while you are booting up Windows.
There is a program you can download for a free trial. (Click on start download). It will help you get rid of some of your start up problems and also clean your registry and fix other common errors you may have with your laptop.
Please try it and see if it works for you. Thanks for using FixYa.com and if you were pleased with the results, don't forget to vote!!

Vista Hard Disk eating itself


you need to free up disk space by deleting temp files and old unused web pages. These mount up over time and if you do not watch it... the hard drive fills up pretty quickly. If you have Windows 7 or Vista go to control panel-system security-administrative tools there you get
a menu which says free up disc space.... click on it and get rid of the **** you do not need.

I have no volume on my dell inspiron e1505. How can I fix this?


hey there, open up my computer and right click on your c drive. This will open a window with a pie chart showing used and free space. If you are out of free space I would run cc cleaner located here .

run the top two cleaners located in the left column. This will clean up all of your trash. Next, any files such as photos or music, transfer to disc, external hard drive or a usb flash drive as your disk drive is too small. Another option would be to get a larger hard drive. Most computers have space to add another inside or the easiest would be to purchase a usb external drive, move all files to it and leave your programs on the hard drive you have. If you need more help, let me know.

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.
