    Do you mean, what happens if you essentially run out of hard disk space? More than likely you'll see performance issues and you'll start getting out of hard disk space errors.

Your hard drive would eventualy crash and seeing that the drive is overloaded there wouldn't be sufficient space left for System Restore to run as it needs a fair amount of space to run. My advice is to always keep about 10% of your HDD size open for System Restore to run properly in case of a HDD crash or system crash.

HDD


Sounds like your hard disk is either empty or broken. I have a spare hard disk that I keep with a different operating system on it for the same laptop. If this happened to me I would just swap hard disks and I would know that the computer hardware was working or if it was just a hard disk problem. I would reinstall. If you have a hard disk caddy you could plug the hard disk into anothet computer and this would check to see if teh hard disk was corrupted.

Cyclic redundancy check


A cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk means that part of a file read from the hard disk doesn't match the expected value.
A cyclic redundancy check error, in other words, means that files on your hard drive are corrupted.
Repair a cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk using the Check Disk tool in Windows.

Click "Start" and click "Computer."
Right-click the hard disk with the cyclic redundancy check error under "Hard Disk Drives" and click "Properties."
Click the "Tools" tab at the top of the hard disk "Properties" window.
Click "Check Now" under "Error Checking."
Select "Automatically Fix File System Errors" and "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors" in the "Check Disk" window by clicking each option if it isn't already selected.
Start a disk check and repair by clicking "Start" in the "Check Disk" window.
Click "Yes" if the "Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?" prompt appears.
A disk can't be checked if it's in use, so you'll need to restart Windows to check it.
Restart your computer by clicking "Start," clicking the arrow icon to the right of "Shut Down" and clicking "Restart."
(External drives will not schedule to happen on restart it will happen straight away.)

I have a A8V-VM Ultra socket 939 with AMIBIOS 0903 version. When I boot normally with the Windows XP (SP3) on the hard disk it seems to work fine, nothing abnormal happens. Booting with a Ubuntu 10.04...


Go into your bios settings make sure your hard drive is set to IDE and make sure secure boot isnt on. You could just try resetting to default.

Also check your ram. Take out one then the other. This usually happens when Windows loads the files it is about to install into the ram. It takes up a lot of space and could cause faulty ram to overload.

Says dns error won't load facebook page or many of the games


Increase memory of your system, if already not done. Itmight be your hard disk overloaded. Remove some videos to increase some emptyspace. Try to Defrag HDD Click on Start button - All Program - Accessories -System tools - Disk Defragmenter. After completion restart your system. NOW itwill work better INSHALLAH.

How do you boost up the speed of your computer? After a virus damaged the speed, and that's free? PLEASE HELP!


Have you tried doing fresh installation on your system, by formatting your hard disk, and installing new windows, as this will remove all hidden virus on your hard drive and will turn the speed of your computer back to its normal stage.

Also when you load your computer's hard disk with too many files, it will reduce the speed of your system gradually and not necessarily virus. This is the reason why it is good to have an external hard drive where you can load some of your file instead of overloading the system hard drive.

So try this and let's see what happens.

Take care

Software work to slow and it shot down


Software Installation : Installing more and more software can make the computer slow down. The reasons for that are that installation of a software will make entries in registry and that is somewhat bad. The software may be running in the startup. The software will install various files on the computer and an overloaded hard disk makes the computer slow.
Free up disk space : Try to keep your hard disk space free. You’ll always notice that a computer with free space on hard disk will always run much faster than the one which is loaded with extra stuff.
* Remove Unwanted Items From Startup : Well, if you’ll remove the unwanted softwares from the startup then your computer will boot up much faster and the memory (RAM) will also remain free and thus that will again result in better computing experience
Run hard disk maintenance utilities : Always run the utilities like Disk Defragmentation or Disk checking utilities regularly, around once in 2 weeks
Run Registry Cleaner : Right, this one is related to first tip. In case you’ve already installed and uninstalled various softwares before reading this tutorial then you can go ahead and run various registry cleaning softwares

System & Screen Freeze when I use external usb drive!


The Evo N610c is upgradable to only 1GB of memory. You're overloading the motherboard, it can't handle 2GB. If you really need 2GB, get a new laptop (or a PC, for that matter). Otherwise, I'd run (2) 512MB sticks of RAM to even out the workload.
