If you run MS disk cleanup, it should give you a clue. A virus (hidden) can also take over space without you knowing it. Warn or bad sectors will slowly addup.

Delayed write failed Failed to save all components for the file \\system32\\00007e87


HI...............

This error typically occurs when the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature for your hard disk is turned on.

However, if the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature is turned off, this error can occur because the Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller may be configured in either of the following ways:
  • You are using a 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
  • The BIOS settings are configured to force faster UDMA modes.
For more information about the delayed write failure, go to the "Delayed Write Failure information" section.

To resolve this issue, first check whether the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature is turned on. If it is turned on, turn it off. To do this, follow these steps.

Note If you turn off the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature, your hard disk may perform more slowly and may affect the overall system performance of your computer. Because of this, you may want to monitor system performance after you follow the steps in this section.

To turn off Enable write caching on the disk, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  2. Right-click the hard disk, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Hardware tab.
  4. Click to select the hard disk, and then click Properties.
  5. Click the Policies tab.
  6. Click to clear the Enable write caching on the disk check box, and then click OK.
  7. Click OK to close the Local Disk (C:) Properties dialog box.
  8. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each hard disk that is installed in your computer.
If these steps resolve the error message, you are finished.

If these steps do not resolve the error message, or if the feature is already turned off, go to the "Advanced Troubleshooting" section. This section is intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, contact Support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/

Make sure that the hard disk controller is configured correctlyTo make sure that the hard disk controller is configured correctly, check the cable connection and the BIOS settings. First, try method 1.Method 1: Check that you are using an 80-wire, 40-pin cableMake sure that your UDMA hard disk controller is using an 80-wire, 40-pin cable. For information about how to do this, see the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact your UDMA hard disk controller manufacturer.

If you are using an 80-wire, 40-pin cable, go to method 2.
If you are not using this cable, obtain and use an 80-wire, 40-pin cable, and then test to determine whether this resolves the error message.

If this resolves the error message, you are finished.

GOOD LUCK................

My notebook is working very slow. i want to format it. how should i do it?


Well, usually, formatting notebooks and/or computers is the last resort. Try to Defragment your hard disk drives, uninstall unnecessary programs, or upgrading memory to speed your notebook.
To defragment a hard disk drive, do this (For windows 7): 1. Click on the Windows button on the lower left of your screen, then click Computer. 2. A window will open up displaying your local hard disk drives (For example, Local Disk C:) 3. Right click on the disk drive that you want to defragment (Ex. Local disk C:) then click Properties 4. A new window will pop-up, go to Tools tab and under the Defragmentation, click Defragment Now (Defragmenting might take a while depending on the number of files and the size of the hard disk drive. 5. You can do the same steps for the other disk partitions (Local Disk D:, etc)
To uninstall programs (Windows 7) 1. Click Windows button on the lower left of your screen, then click Control Panel 2. A new window will open, look for the Programs part, then click the "Uninstall a program" link. 3. This will take you to the programs list with installed programs in your notebook/computer. 4. Select the programs that you want to remove/uninstall, then click Uninstall.
To upgrade physical memory/RAM (random access memory) 1. Please contact your manufacturer. Memory will be dependent on what kind of notebook model that you have.
If the above suggestions doesn't make your notebook a bit faster, then you might want to backup all your files to another media (like external hard drive, or burn it into DVD's). It would be the right time to format your notebook.
1. You should contact your notebook manufacturer about notebook formatting.

I have a 150gb hard drive with 2gb memory. How can I upgrade my hard drive and memory


As with most laptops, there are two memory slot. This laptop has 1GB in each. You need to remove one or both and replace with 2GB boards. The 2gb memory boards are around $50 or so. Changing memory is easy to do.
Replacing a disk is easy also, but you need to get your programs from the old disk to the new. That usually takes a local shop to do that. You may just want to buy a new computer instead of upgrading.

Laptop shuts down begining dump of memory runs check disk


Hello,

Your hard disk has developed errors.
This might be caused due to damaged files on your hard disk, or a program you recently installed which may have some errors.

If you recently installed a program, that does not work well with your computer, you might consider uninstalling it.

You should also consider performing a disk defragmentation to reorganize file on your computer.

To perform disk defragmentation, go to your "My Computer"
Select your Local Disk drive, then right click and select Properties.
Click on the "Tools" tab, then click on "Defragment Now"
After that, select the Local Disk C drive, then click on Defragment.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth

How do i find out how much free space is left on my hard drive. the computer is moving slowly


click on "My Computer" right click on local disc "C" and click on properties. This will show you in graph form how much spave you have left. Slow downs on computers are more from a shortage of ram memory and lots of temp files clogging up the system.

Acer Travelmate 2300 memory all used


Disk space is not RAM.
RAM is a memory where operating system and software keeps their current state.
All disk space used is a message about the harddrive on your laptop.
You will have to buy bigger harddrive and change it (you will have to move or reinstall system) or buy an external USB harddrive and move some data onto it keeping the original system in place.
