Question about ASUS Eee PC 900 PC Notebook

1 Answer

How can I split the use of my hard drives more effectively? My struggle with my C drive constantly to keep it over 300 M while my D drive sits there with over 5 G. The whole system pauses a lot because of low disk space. I bought this little thing because the salesman said it would be great for Java programming but not if it can't install and run everything from my D drive. Can I utilize this a little better? The salesman had no idea.

Need to know what size each patition is. Double click on "My Computer" and see how many drives are listed, normally C, D but if you also have an E then its patitioned. Right click on each to see how big they are. The only way to re-organise a pertition is to back up all info / format the drive and re-organise the partition to about 50/50. You can get aftermarket partition makers but will cost you, Another suggestion is to transfer all pics, docs etc to the other partition so that only programs are running in C drive and nothing is stored on it.

Define hibernation & stand by


Hibernation: The computer saves all data currently in memory and all open programs just as they are. It freezes everything in a way. All the saved programs and data are written to the hard drive for storage. That way the computer can sit for a long time without drawing power to keep the open programs and data saved. However, it will take a longer time to wake up the computer.

Standby: The computer does not save open programs and data to the hard drive. Instead it keeps everything open and simply goes into a super lower power state. The memory receives a constant stream of minor power so that it can keep the programs and data in memory until the computer is woken back up. The computer will wake up much quicker but will draw power slowly as it sits in Standby mode.

The laptop makes a constant clicking sound


Sounds like the hard drive is having problems. Try running CHKDSK to check for errors and a good anti virus programme if that has no effect, try saving your data to another drive before it is lost and then fit a fresh hard drive loading your programmes back on.
It is a laborious task but better than losing all of your stuff!

Hard drive noise


"hard drive noise" is much to broad. Need a better description. However, if the noise is constant then it is probably due to bad bearings. If so, it can't be fixed by the user.

I cant erase the files in my hard disk, if i erased it, it's keep on comimhg back..what will i do?


INFO:
Files are never really erased from a hard drive.
At various stages files are always recoverable.

RECOMENDATION:
To truly erase your hard drive take it out and completely destroy it down to many small parts.

Reformat the hard drive.




Hope this tip helps.

Help!Help with external hard drive?


Your disk drive is a delicate instrument, it will react negatively if dropped on the floor.
However what you might try all be it rather radical in this age of micro fine technology is. take a deep breath and sit down. Take the disk drive in your left hand with the edge of the drive that struck the floor facing away, make a fist with your right hand and strike the opposite edge with with almost equal force.
The reason behind this is simply that when you dropped your drive on the floor the heads got jammed either into the disk spool or out side of it,
If you have to pay $300 for disk recovery you cannot be doing much worse than trying this before you have to.
