You cannot split the partition while its in use.
THE FOLLOWING WILL ERASE THE ENTIRE DRIVE.

put the OS dvd into the machine
power on
hit F12 key when the dell logo appears
select the cd/dvd drive.
the machine will now boot from the OS disk
follow the instructions until it asks where to install windows.
At this point you can split the disk into as many partitions as you like providing you choose a partition of at least 30Gb for the OS to be installed on.

How to partition the HD into two portion with OS windows 8?


Hold the Windows logo key on your keyboard and press "R" (Winkey+R). This will launch the Run the utility. Type "diskmgmt.msc" inside the text box and press Enter. This will open the Windows Disk Management utility. This is where you can format, create, and delete hard drive partitions.
order to create a partition, you need unallocated space. Unallocated space is basically disk space that is not formatted or not prepared for storage. Formatting is the act of preparing a disk space for storage. It similar to building a foundation for a place to be inhabited. Thus, unallocated space is just useless blank space with no "foundation" or format.
To create unallocated space, you need to shrink your hard drive. When you shrink your hard disk, the remaining space becomes unallocated.
To do this, right-click your main drive and select "Shrink Volume."
You will then see the region of unallocated space (shaded black). Remember, this space is not yet usable.
Now you need to create "foundation" or format for the unallocated space. This will allow for the space to become usable.
Right-click the region of unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume."
This will launch the New Simple Volume Wizard. This will guide you through the installation process.
ssign the disk a drive letter. You can choose any drive letter that is not currently in use.
Select a file system for the disk. The file system is basically the type of format or "foundation" the storage device has. If you plan on installing a Windows OS to the partition select the"NTFS" file system.
Name the partition in the "Volume Label" text box. You can choose any name for your partition.
Now click "Finish" to create the new partition.

I have a acer aspire 3684NWXMi series with a 80 GB hard disk drive and want to upgrade to the 320 - 500 GB do I have to buy a certain make or brand for it to work in my laptop?


According to this review there is no optical drive, (CD/DVD drive),

http://www.naaptol.com/laptops/acer-aspire-3684nwxmi/P/779.html

The new harddrive is blank. No Operating System on it.

No Windows.

After a person installs a new harddrive, the basic procedure is to use the Restoration Disk, and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

No optical drive.

[No Restoration Disk is NO problem. Contact HP Support.
In the US it is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have more info for US, and other countries if you need it ]

This means you will go through some 'changes', if no optical drive.
More than I believe you may wish to take on.
(Don't want to overstep myself, or seem rude)

The next thing is there may be a harddrive limit.
Might be capped at 135GB, and not allow a 300, or 500GB harddrive.
If this holds true the harddrive is then partitioned;

300GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 3 partitions, of 100GB each; or 4 partitions of 75GB each.

500GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 4 partitions of 125GB each.

Fools BIOS into thinking there is just a 75GB, or 100GB, or 125GB harddrive; instead of a 300GB, or 500GB unit.

Yes. More headache if you may not be adept.

I suggest using an external harddrive instead.

Just my thoughts,
Regards,

Startup from the windows 7 disk as if you were going to reinstall. Choose 'advanced' in the section where you sort out the disk to install to, and partition the unallocated space. Then exit out, do not continue to the format and install stage.
Once you have restarted into your original windows, you can format the new partition as normal.
Having said that, 10gb is pretty small for an OS partition, 15 0r 20gigs would be better and you can swap some space from your new partition to the OS partition. There are plenty of tools you can use to do this with at www.download.com.

Hanging of laptop, when i open twoor more programs


Well, you need more RAM. 1 GB is not enough for Vista Ultimate. Contact Dell to upgrade and add a 2 GB memory module for a total of 3 GB. Apparently, you have 30 GB disk full with the Vista OS and software programs. At some point, I'd like to see you extend your partition for your 160 GB drive so that "C" is much larger than 40 GB. You'll need one-one assistance via FixYa.
