To work with vista you must be having the minimum system requirements of 512 mb ram otherwise you will b experience slow...

if you have 512 mb ram or more than that then may be it s operating system problem just try reinstalling vista again....
and the drive in which the os lies may be in ntfs file system format ... so it is slow.....

I bought today a lacie hard disk 500GB and instead of 500GB has only 9.99 MB space.What's the problem?


Sounds like your have a 9.99mb partition on your drive with the rest being free space.

If you are running windows goto the Computer Management program and check under storage> disk management to see if your 500gb drive is there. if it is delete the existing partitions and reformat the entire disk to NTFS

"D:\ is not accessible"


Well this is kinda of a funky setup you got going with 3 drives, why dont you make a partition on the c drive to handle vista and make another partition on C: to handle xp? Run a multiboot and there you go. See vista is going to take over that secound drive no matter what, also you got to realize that its hard stating a multiboot from two diffrent drives, use your other 2 drives to store your programs and your set.

I have attached a 500 Gb USB hard drive and wish to format it, It is showing under systems devices however not under my computer. Operating system is XP Thanks


It could be that a partition has not been created on your usb drive, connect to your USB port and go to Disk Management in XP:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
  2. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears. Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view.
Locate your new drive on there and do the following:

  1. In the Disk Management window, complete one of the following procedures, and then continue to step 2:
    • To create a new partition, right-click unallocated space on the basic disk where you want to create the partition, and then click New Partition.
    • To create a new logical drive in an extended partition, right-click free space on an extended partition where you want to create the logical drive, and then click New Logical Drive.
  2. In the New Partition Wizard, click Next.
  3. Click the type of partition that you want to create (either Primary partition, Extended partition, or Logical drive), and then click Next.
  4. Specify the size of the partition in the Partition size in MB box, and then click Next.
  5. Decide whether to manually assign a drive letter, let the system automatically enumerate the drive, or do not assign a drive letter to the new partition or logical drive, and then click Next.
  6. Specify the formatting options you want to use by using one of the following procedures:
    • If you do not want to format the partition, click Do not format this partition, and then click Next.
    • If you want to format the partition, click Format this partition with the following settings, and then complete the following procedure in the Format dialog box:
      1. Type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
      2. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box.

        You can change the disk allocation unit size, and then specify whether to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
      Click Next.

  7. Confirm that the options that selected are correct, and then click Finish.

How Can I Speed Up My Slow PC?


Go to Trend Micro and run Housecall to check your PC for viruses and spyware.
If it is still slow go to Start and click on My Computer. Right click on your C: drive and choose Properties. Run the Disk Cleanup. When that finishes click on the Tools tab and do a Check Disk and Disk Defrag.

2nd partition disk drive D: is not accessible


Several brands now have the recovery software and backup of your computer on the D: partition.

You probably have XP (Vista doesn't try to stop you from viewing the contents of the drive). I would recommend using a 3rd party explorer clone to move the music files back to the C: and leave that partition alone. Also if you have not made your recovery discs yet do so before messing with the recovery partition.

On an HP or Compaq the recovery disc manager can be found under HP or under PC Help & Tools in the start menu.
