Question about Acer Aspire 9410-4317 Notebook

1 Answer

Have tried a solution but there's still a problem

Sorry I dont know much about computers so my wording may not b correct etc. The problem is this - I have an Acer Aspire 5715Z with windows Vista. I have had it since about October. When I go in 2 my computer it is saying I have - Acer C: 482MB free of 32.5 GB file system NTFS but data D: 31.1 GB free of 32.2 GB
I tried downloading something and it's said I have no space. Why are things not saving in the other drive 2? and what do I have 2 do 2 fix this?
Thank you

I have since used this advice -
You need to backup and clear off some of your C: drive, most likely your machine is running much slower because of it (Windows requires more room for a proper cache).

But now my ACER C: drive still only has 5.30GB free of 32.5GB and DATA D: drive has 15.2 GB free of 32.2 GB
Does this not mean that I now have less space left overall?! I dont understand how I have so little space left in a relatively new computer?

    I also tried to free up space; per your advice above ,I will redirect things to the D drive, in the future. But for now I can't free up the space, to even download SP3.My internal C drive capacity is 19.5 GB, only has 195MB free. My D drive capacity is !9.GB,& free space of 4.21GB.I don't download video. I do have a 1000+ photos, on Picasa & ACDC,have to learn how to burn them to disk. I have XPpro, SP2, IE 6.& cable modem. I'm only half experienced, so I'm not sure what else you would need to know. I keep my Antivirus, Antispyware, & MS malicious malware removal tool scan updated, & run daily. My computer is slower, but still opening programs.I defragged Cdrive, didn;t help much. I need your help...Greatgrandma Bunny.

    Some suggestions:

    1) Run the disk cleanup utility. It will delete (if selected) temp files, temporary internet files and recycle bin files.

    2) After that, if you use broadband to connect to the internet, go to your Internet Options. On the Advanced tab scroll down and check the box next to "Empty Temporary Internet Files Folder when browser is closed". This will keep you from building up a large cache of files.

    3) In the Control Panel under Add and Remove Programs, I would uninstall any programs that you NEVER USE. Computers are usually loaded with things like AOL, games, trial versions, etc. that just take up space. Just be sure of what you are removing.

    4) If you download much video, consider an external drive to save it to instead of your internal drives. Video files are very large and with only 60GB to start with, it could fill up quickly.

    5) Another note: When you download something you are normally given a window to Save Run or Cancel. When you select Save, you have to designate where to save it to. You need to use the drop down menu and direct it to save to your Data D:\ drive. The purpose of saving to your Data drive is that, should you need to run a recovery/restore, the D:\ drive will remain intact.

    Having said all that, I am not sure why your drives ended up as they did. I do not know what you backed up or copied to the D:\ drive, so it is difficult to diagnose. Hope this helps.

Look first make habit of saving ur downloads to Drive D ok never save ur download s on drive Acer : C secondly let me tell u windows Vista is a bulky OS and it needs much space on hard drive thats why atleast 120 Gb is recommended for Vista it seems like u have an 80 gb hard drive Vista will work but it will take much of ur drive space as my Vista installation is around 39 GB now i dont know but it grows his size day by day thats why some ppl with less system resources go back to XP , u can free up more disk space by doing following:

go to download ans install it run the cleaner and look for temp files that may be lying and occupying disk space.

2. Go to My Computer Right click on Acer C take properties click button Disk cleanup select files from all users let it scan ur hard drive and then it will present u with some temp files , hibernation files and thumbnail files and error reporting files check the boxes and perform the cleanup select all of them u will get some space press OK it will cleanup and delete these files and u will see some space freed up, in more options in the same windows u can also uninstall some progrmas on ur C drive which u installed and u no longerr want now u can un install them as well after that come out of it

3. Now go to My computer right click and take properties of Acer C now go to Tools Tab and select Defragment Now and select C drive and defrag ur drive this will take time after this correct free space will be visible to u after all cleaning steps

if u get enuff space u wanted then it is ok otherwise u can also take some space from the D drive and can merge into C drive if u want i can help u in that but i prefer changing ur hard drive as it is too small for a system like Vista , XP will give u no trouble on that drive

pls let me know and do rate me if i fixya problem

My msi laptop just completely shut off and the battery was at 58% and i saw a blue screen and some words after then it just completely start restarting. What's up with that?

Sorry to hear that. How long have you had the laptop? When has this started happening? It could be hardware failure. If you can try to catch the first 3 words or if there is an error code, try to provide me with it. I will try to see what I can do.

I want to download a free ms word

Sorry to say but MS-Word isn't a free software but you can try the portable version of ms-word try googling with the terms "ms-word 2007 portable" or "portable ms-word+version"
A portable version includes only the files necessary to run the software but misses some like help, clip art and like.
If you want a free full ms-word then try torrent.
Hope that work

I know how to cut past but dont know how to put where my school wants to so i can sent it to them

Most school project and assignments are produced as word documents.
You need to open a blank word document and paste the information into this word document.
You need to add your own words and not use all the information and material from a computer or Internet source. The teacher can recognize copied material from internet sources that are not your own words.
The finished word document can be printed out or copied to a CD etc. as required by your teacher.

Installed Acer c193w with acer desktop combo and XP (sp2). Now I am getting ''streaks'' whenever I open word, publisher etc documents (more so if they include pictures etc) I have the lastet driver so I am...

it is possible that you dont have the correct drivers, an example of what i came accross, i installed a Nvidia driver on a system, and i checked it was correct, i found that although it was a nvidia driver it wasnt the same as the one that the manufacturer had and downloading the correct drivers direct from manufacturers suite helped.
manufacturers use generic brand name chips for there products.
try a hardware identifier program like aida.
good luck.

Problem istalling Word to computer

Limited resources means your computer does not meet the basic requirements to install the program.
On the side of the box, it will state the minimum requirements necessary for the program to run... ie 256MB ram 20GB free space on HDD etc.
You will need a newer PC, or older version of Word in order to install it on your computer.

No Power up

If you feel brave, open up the case (assuming no warranties etc, if it has a warranty sticker on it, and you know the warranty is valid, whatever you do- dont open the case, take it to them to fix!) and double check all power leads etc are plugged in correctly. The power box is the silver box, usually at the top left hand corner of your computer. Follow all the cables and make sure everythings plugged in. Usually if something is loose, you get some mad beeping, but some manufacturers turn the beeps off (Why, I dont know!) Check that there are no loose cables and everythings in nice and snug, then try booting it up again. Did anything happen between it working and it not? say, a pop or some crackling? or its been moved? Do you get any visual output at all?

Sorry If I can't be any more helpful at this stage, I have had this problem a few times with some computers, and its either somethings loose, or the motherboard has gone!
