Not enough memory ALL THE TIME!!

I have tried everything. Deleting all my big files..till nothing extraordinary is left..its like a shell with only Microsoft Office. Thought of doing system restore, but I got message "System restore is suspended because there is not enough disk space available on the system drive C:/ ....ensure at least 200mbs of space are available on this drive. DUUUHHH!! help anyone?

    Thanks for the info. my OS is Win XP Home Ed. Right now I only have
    10.8MB free space. out of 4GB. I dont understand why theres a Local D:/
    dat i have 5.86 GB free space left.
    What do I need to delete or is it possible to transfer to that drive? how to?

    Hi SabZai,

    thanks for the additional information! Did you ever try to save something to drive D:, since there is so much space left? To me it seems this partition (it's only one drive inside of your computer and this drive is divided into two partitions, normally one for the system = drive (better: partition) c: and the other one for recovery and/or user data - in your case drive d:).

    Please try and let us know!

    Kind regards,

    Hi SabZai,


    as far as I know your netbook offers 4 GB disk space at all. Depending on the size of your operating system (which you didn't let us know yet) there will never be much space left for saving additional files...


    For the system restore you would need to free up more space which could be done by first saving the files you want to delete to an external drive and then to delete them from drive C: (just to be on the safe side!).


    Unfortunately these are the only hints I can give you right now; if I would know the operating system I could possibly do more for you...


    Greetings,

How big is the drive?
how much space do you have free?
how big is your paging/virtual memory file?
how big is your recycle bin?
all of these take space too.
you will need approx 20% of drive space free if it has a system installed on it.
i think you may need a bigger drive or another one for files etc so the system can run unobstructed.

    it does not matter what system you are using.
    you need a new hard drive. your system will not run with only a few mb of space.
    your d drive is just a partition that the system can not use.
    it's for storing data,i.e. pics, vids,etc.
    i suggest a new hard drive of at least 160gb for your system to be installed on. it would not be worth upgrading to anything smaller.
    you wont be able to delete or move system files and nearly 4gb sounds about right for an xp install. my vista system files are nearly 11gb.

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.

I have error codes 663 & 80070490 so windows update when I install fails also laptop is a little slow


These error codes mean that your operating system is corrupt or "broken" you will need to repair windows. Do you have the windows disk that came with your computer? if not try this fix from Microsoft:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
this might fix enough to get updates working again
if not try deleting the update records that are on your system
c:/windows/system32/windowsupdate
this file is a notepad file delete everything in the file and then save.
when it asks you to over right the file click yes and the restart your machine and try to update

I lost my recovery disks during move now i cannt reboot system theres a problem on hdd it says no room left so now wont let me make any recovery disks yet there is nothing on hdd


Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Delete Temporary Internet Files.
Close Internet Explorer.

Click Start.
Click Run.
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type CD LOC and press the TAB key and then the ENTER key.
Type CD TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type CD \WINDOWS\TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type DIR and press ENTER.
You should see something like:

20 File(s) 3,165,781 bytes
20 Dir(s) 1,443,053,568 bytes free

i.e., where 1.4 Gigabytes is enough space to hold about 2 full CD-ROMs of data.

Find a USB memory-stick that is mostly "empty", and connect it,
to create more "available" disk-space, e.g., 1 or 2 or 4 or 8GB more.

Now, try to make the recovery disks.

My old, cheap Dell will not come on, screen is black


The memory it is referring to is RAM, not hard drive space. You may have a bad memory module; one easy way to tell is, if your computer comes up at all, right click My Computer and select properties, it should display on this screen how much memory the computer thinks it has. You may need to get some new RAM.

PC shuts down when I select restart


Here are a couple things you can try.

Edit the MSCONFIG Startup tab and Services Tab. Disable the entire startup tab, and HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICES on the Services tab, then uncheck the rest. Reboot, then try a restart. If the problem goes away, then start adding items back one at a time till you identify the item causing the issue.

Updating the BIOS and Video driver are usually helpful.

You can also create a new profile with Admin rights and see if it works normally. Often, a profile will develop issues that are usually easier resolved by just creating a new profile, then moving data files to the new profile. (Never delete the old profile till you are absolutely sure there is nothing left in the profile you need.)

Compaq armada 1700 only starts on safe mode


If this is your notebook - Compaq Armada 1700 (316320-056) PC Notebook. The system memory only came with 32MB's of memory. Your not telling me enough. Have you recently upgraded your operating system? If I have this wrong please post which Compaq you have from the list I'm providing from this link:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96221&taskId=135
If you are trying to run a XP version your memory will need to be increased to at least 512MB. You still have the Compaq's splash screen loading when you turn on your notebook which blocks you from seeing the amount of memory installed in your notebook. So when you start your notebook press the F12 key on your keyboard. You need to enter the bios. If F12 does not get you there than try F10 or F1 key. At startup. Repeat hitting the key every two seconds till the Bios screen loads. Look for the amount of memory installed. At the bottom of the bios screen is instructions on how to navagate while in the bios. You'll need to post back with what you found If I'm to help further.
