In order for your laptop to properly operate you should keep at least 10% of your hard disk drive free, as this space is needed for your computer to properly operate. Move some of your current files to the external hard drive and remove them from the mail drive, then defraf drive and you should have smooth sailing.

    You can right click start and select explore. This should open the windows explore window that shows all of your of your drives and files. If you have a lot of pictures and/or music right mouse click your pictures folder or music folder and select copy. Go to the icon for your external hard drive in windows explore ( usually by scrolling down the right hand column. Right mouse click the icon and select paste. This should copy those folers to the drive. One you determine that the files have transferred (your pictures and music show on the external hard drive, you can return to the original folders and open them and select select all from the edit menu, this will highlight everything in the folder, then select file and choose delete. This should clear room on your internal disk drive.

Hard drive went on my laptop. Put in new hard drive and downloading all the disc but can't get the internet to connect wireless or hookup.


Use a computer that is connected to the Internet, download the drivers and copy them to a USB memory stick and then copy them to your laptop and install them from your hard drive or just install them from the USB memory stick.
I suggest you burn these drivers onto a CD so you have these device drives when you need to re-build your hard disk again.

I got my dell dimension e521 used, when i download software to the computer it goes to the e:/ drive instead of the c:/ drive. The computer is running slow because of lack of drive space. How do i correct...


you must erase some data on the disc if you don't want to lose all because if it goes like this you will get your hard disc crashed and you will lose all important data. run disc fragment and scan disc regularly.if problem persist rather use an external hard disc for quick,safe and easy transfer

I need to add hard drive space, my disc is full...increasing the ram is not enough right?


RAM and Hard drive are distinct issues, if there is some error about the Virtual Memory Low, then Increasing the RAM is better option.

But if you are sure that the Hard drive is full, then definitely the solution lies in upgrading to a larger one, or adding an other one, with the old.

I,downloaded films got to the last stages of burning on 2 disc and it says ive got enough for temp files but the recording proc will need more


Hi,

You need to clear space on the hard drive as your burning software is unable to allocate the space needed to create a the temporary files.

Go through your hard drives and delete all the movies and stuff that you don't need or have backed up to a DVD or external hard drive.

Once you have cleared enough space your DVD software should be able to create the temp files for burning.



Regards.

I want to free up space on my hard drive and move it to another


well you gotta ask yourself if you have an external hard drive or removeable hard drive which are basically the same thing... if so you can open my computer and then open in a separate window the removeable hard drive and drag and drop files that you want to save!

Low disk space and I did clear files.


Low disc space really means nothing, but low disc space.

I understand you have cleared your files, but your going to have to remove more....if you have excessive music, pictures, and videos...try backing them up to a DVD or flash drive, then deleting them off of the computer.

If you cannot seem to clear anymore space the next thing to do would be purchasing an external hard drive. This way you can save files on that drive while not adding anymore to the current drive. You can view some external hard drives here
