There is nothing wrong with your computer. It's just your hard disk is full. In order for your computer to run smoothly, you need to have at least 30% of your hdd space free. Or else it will slow down your process and eventually hang.
You need to delete all your unwanted files first or you can move to your second partition. Make sure at least you got 10% free space, then save to CD.
Do until you get 30% free space on your C: drive. After that to tuneup your system, do check disk and defragment the drive

    Correct me if I'm wrong, you said you have 2 partition with 80gb on each one. Then how come you can have 100gb extra space if you only have 80gb each.
    When you do a partition, the disk space is not the combination of both rather you have to look at each individual partition or drive. Now your system drive should be C: drive. This is the important drive that you must have at least 30% free space as I mention in my solution. In order to see how much free space it has, open my computer, right click on c: drive, choose properties. If the free space is less than 30% apply my solution again. Good Luck.

Fujitsu sata mhv2080bh 80GB drive partition in windows 7

Not sure what your question is but it seems like you are having some type of partition size issue with windows 7. I see that you say you have an 80GB drive which is very small so there is not much to partition on it.

MSI P965 Pt Continually re-boots on start-up

You don't say exactly at what point in the boot sequence the system crashed and restarts. Many things could be at work here. You say you are using the HDD from the previous system. Did you swap this drive straight out and are still using the OS load from the previous system? Windows loads drivers at startup based upon the hardware installed. If you are using and old WIndows load with a new mainboard, this could be the entire cause of your crashes. YOu may be able to get to SAGE mode and remove the old drivers and try to restart the system, but from experience I will tell you that to get the best results when installing a new mainboard, you should reload the OS from the original OS disk, and then load the new mainboard drivers.

Replace laptop hard drive or replace laptop. Current 80 GB Toshiba?

It depends on what you run on this laptop ..but if you only run windows xp do not need a larger hard drive ..and if you only need space to store data can just get a usb external hard drive and avoid the trouble ..The hard drive will be fully usable in other computers too and this is the advantage if you will upgrade in the future to another one with high performances ..
If you have at least a 1.6 cpu on it ..and 1 G of ram memory and you think you may run windows 7 can upgrade it to a larger hard disk ..but remember that this one runs on ata ..and I'm not sure it worth the trouble .
If you have at least 1 G of ram memory on it you can run windows 7 with this hard disk too ..but you will probably have to change the partitions configurations and make C drive at least 40 G so to have space to run it proper..
let me know if you have other thoughts related with this matter ..and i will answer it ..Please rate my answer to help my activity here ..thank you ..!

I got the msi p965 platinum board today secondhand i installed it and double checked all connections. i installed my 9500 gt gfx card and pluged everything in and swithed on there is powere permanently but...

Boot into your bios when you are first turning on the computer(Press Del while the Press DEL to enter SETUP message displays on screen after powering on the computer.) and look and see if you have "only use on-board graphics" set. Sometimes you have to click the arrow and choose"use graphics card" instead of the system only using your on-board graphics.

80gigs partition then reformatted and displays only 31gigs

If there are files on the drive that you need to recover, then do not format it. It sounds as though the computer that you put the drive into has an issue where the bios perhaps does recognize the drive correctly. Perhaps that can be corrected by updating the bios in the computer, and trying the drive again. Or you may want to put it back into the original computer, back up the files to other media, and then put the drive in the computer and re-partition.

What does the FDISK - "DISPLAY PARTITION INFORMATION" utility report? Do you have a copy of FDISK? If the partitoins in FDISK add up correctly, then it could just be that the data is corrupt, and windows is just unable to read. If that's the case, you should try a recovery application to restore your data..
