You can't directly add additional memory space to the C drive, but you can add additional hard drive and move the files from C drive to the additional drive. If there's enough space on D or E drive, you can move from C drive to the other drive. Note that your C drive includes your Desktop, My Documents files, My videos, My pictures, My Music etc.. So make sure you haven't saved extra files on you Desktop or My Documents. To free up some space, you can run DiskCleanup utility which is built-in with the Operating System. To do this, Right click on the C drive, Properties - Disk Cleanup... and then provide positive input, eg. yes or ok. good luck..

My dell dimension 3000 PC has run out of memory space on the C-drive. How do I add more memory?


Looks like that computer ships with a standard 40GB drive. If you have ran out, you'd need to go to your local computer parts store (ie, frys) or buy an additional hard drive. Your computer uses the IDE interface for hard drives, which is a 40-pin connector. You can but these pretty cheap now. Once you get it, it's just a matter of opening the case, and putting it in there. You can't connect it to the wrong place.

Dell DIM. 3000 PC very slow & freezes up at times.


There are several reasons for a slow computer:
  1. Processor speed
  2. Memory size
  3. Too many program running
If your computer used to run fine, then it could be that there is too much running now for it to handle, in which case either a cleanup or upgrade (or both) is in order. Based on the specs from the CNET website, the Dimension 3000 comes with a Celeron D 2.4 GHz processor and 256MB of RAM (Memory).

If this is the case, then your memory needs to be upgraded at the very minimum. Anything less than 1 GB (1024 MB) just doesn't cut it anymore.

I would also HIGHLY suggest looking at the programs you have running in the system tray (bottom right corner of the screen) to see how many programs you have running, you might check to see if all of those are necessary.
