By the looks of things your hardrive has burnt out and only giving you what is not burnt out the best bet would to buy a new interneal hardrive and switch the hardrive in the extunal one to the new one you bought

Optiplex GXS 240 Dell. After 6 years of hard work


Hi,
Run the onboard diagnostics on the hardrives and system memory before doing the OS reinstall.
Instructions on how to run diagnostics are given below

Another workaround you can try is disconnect one hardrive from the computer and install the OS and then put the additional harddrive

I recently purchased a Gateway Computer and it appears to already have alat of space used in the recovery drive. I have 1.11 GB free of 11.5 GB's. Is this normal?


If you have just one drive then it might be possible you have lot of unwanted files in it. Recovery files dont take too much space usually. So best suggestion so to go for some cleaning.
You can use ccleaner here is the link
http://www.ccleaner.com/
That will remove lot of unwanted stuff on your system
check if you some hidden files too.. you can open any folder-->tools-->folder options-->view-->show me hidden files
check in you C drive or main drive you might have lot of unwanted folders in there. Remove all unwanted programs from Add/remove programs in control panel
and finally dont forget recycle bin
Hope it helps !!

My computer was shut down by power surge, i had to restore system to get it running again , more than once maybe 6 times!!!!! after that i defrag.... and there are now more files then were there originally...


you must backup your file and burn it in dvd/cd, any time your hardrive will be busted, the defrag is not god to use, wen your pc is not proper shutdown they can damage the hardrive,

backup your files and reformat your hardrive and install new O.s

Hard disk problem


Do you mean the fan is running more loudly?

It's possible the additional heat from the hard drive is raising the temperature inside the case. Most fans are thermostatically controlled (they run more the hotter the PC is) so you'd expect this.

Will it affect the motherboard? If the the fan is running properly, no. The PC should shut itself down before thermal damage occurs. Make sure you don't have it tucked into a space where there's no airflow.

Make sure all the vents are clear (vacuum if necessary); I will even open the case and vacuum, but if you don't know what you're doing, I don't recommend this.
