Hi Barfly12
Happy Holidays
I am going to "give you" a few advises.
1) Take our all temp areas files, and files, folders you won't use.
2) Uninstall Software you don't use often.
3) Delete all *.tmp or *.Temp files on drice C: (carefully)
Then depending on the size of the game, install it.
if you got a particion or another slave Drive go ahead and install the game in that partition, but, you have of course to install some exec. files to C:
happy gaming....

With such a small C drive, uninstall all non os programs and reinstall to D drive. Do not use the C drive for extra stuff. Most every thing U install (even to D drive) will add some additional data to the C drive load. clean and defrag often.

You can move your files in drive D, include your sound files and movies to free up the drive C... The effect, when no more space to drive C, your computer's performance will go slow and soon just stops... You can install games on drive D instead of the inside folder of Program files...

Can sony vaio VGN-FS742/W run windows 7?


Hi,

Yes the Sony should run Win 7 although its designed for XP. For Win 7 to run properly you will need to max out the memory to 2GB.
I have installed Win 7 on plenty of older laptops without any problems. You won't be able to use the aero glass features (see through taskbar and window borders) as the graphics chipset doesn't support that feature but everything should work well once you have enough memory installed.



Regards.

I Bought a Vaio computer with Windows 7 and installed. I would like to install Windows XP, how can I do it?


Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options change the first boot device to CDROM.
Windows doesn't like to have the same version written over it, or a lesser version written over it..
Forcing the computer to boot from the optical drive, (CD/DVD drive), corrects this.

What is the model number?

Sony Vaio not recognized installed memory


Swap the modules between the slots.

If the message shanges to slot 0 not recogonized, then you have a bad memory module,
Easy fix, just get another module.

If the message does not change, then you have a problem on the mother board.
Not an easy fix, it would be cheaper to buy a 1GB module and use the good slot.

Good Luck!
