All my file become shortcut folder in my pen drive how to solve it please help me

If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in

hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run-->type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your pendrive as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

Note : Replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.

Now check for your files in Pen Drive.

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

If there are really important files in your pendrive and you need it then:
convert full pen drive to .rar --->extract each file individuly on ur hard disc. IT WORKS
. i recoverd my full data.
n den format ur pen drive.

The computer takes really long to start up..sometimes it freezes and takes long to respond.

That sounds like you have errors a fuul hard drive and/or memory problems.
When it has booted up, I presume you are running Windows of some sort, run CHKDSK/F from the start menu.
Then reboot and go into the BIOS menu. Find Memcheck and tick it.
Re boot and let it check the memory for errors.
If there are problems with the memory, replace as required.
Re boot and run Defrag.
If the hard drive is more than 80% full it will not run very quickly and a fresh larger hard drive would help.
Hope that helps.

Hp says maximum memory is 2 x 512, yet memorystock and other sellers say I can go up to 2 x 1 gig. Is this safe?

If the computer is a model a710n, the motherboard will take up to 2 GB of RAM. Full motherboard specs are here, and they'll tell you everything you need to know to get compatible memory.

    Memory has nothing to do with drive capacity.
    If your drive is not full, no worries. Great.
    If you are low on memory, you can do two things:

    a) buy more memory for your pc.
    b) download Mike Linn's Start-Up CPL applet (free)-
    -1 install it in the system32 folder
    -2 open your control panel
    -3 double click the new Start-Up applet
    -4 examine all the start-up entries
    -5 disable every unnecessary start-up item by unchecking boxes next to them
    -most of these entries will be unnecessary, such as quick time, real media, any IM client, etc.
    you can launch those programs when you want to use them. it is unnecessary for them to start with your pc and this will free up available system memory.

    you do NOT need to format your drive.
    you do NOT have a drive space problem
    you have inadequate system memory.

    Vertiual memory

    Virtual memory is really hard disk space used as memory.
    If you are running low on virtual memory, make sure your hard disk is not nearly full (check in MyComputer). or adjust Virtual Memory settings:

    On Windows XP look in
    • Control Panel
    • System, Advanced,
    • Performance,
    • Settings,
    • Advanced,
    • Virtual Memory.(set to a larger number)
    I believe it's in a similar location in other versions of Windows.

    I have an ACER ASPIRE 5720 laptop - it is less than a year old and it is showing the memory is full - the memory is meant to be 32 GB and from what I can see from the programme menus there is less than 4...

    Hi j0shuatsb,
    Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
    This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
    This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
    What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
    It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
    Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
    Please run a full system virus scan.
    Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
