Download Partition Magic (or some other Disk Partitioning tool) and delete the D:\, then resize the C:\ to maximum size. Note that this is not a foolproof process and you may lose all your data - so back it up before you begin.

Secondly, 40 Gb is a fair bit of space to have filled. Have you tried backing up any data (that is not essential on the Hard Drive) to DVD's or some other external storage device, and deleting Restore Points and Temporary files to clear up some space?

In both cases, defrag the disk after you have finished.

Good luck.

I have Acer 1200 Aspire. When I turn it on, it won't proceed past the initial window. It says boot failure.


It almost sounds like your primary boot disk is incorrectly selected in the BIOS. On older machines, the primary disk on the primary cable had to be the boot disk, but nowadays almost any device can be selected as boot disk. Check your BIOS setting and ensure that the hard disk partition that you have Windows installed on is selected as the first boot device. Otherwise, the system may be looking in the wrong place for the OS and giving the boot error.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

I have a laptop Hp with original OS (i3), i found out that it has only one Partition, can i make it 2 or 3 partitions without reformatting it?


Yes you can use programs like Partition Magic that allows you to create, resize and merge partitions on your hard drive without destroying data. It can also help organize and protect your data, run multiple operating systems, convert file system types and fix partition table errors.

Sata hard drive could not be detected during win xp installation in acer aspire M3600


It could only be a limited number of problems:

1. SATA drive is not connected to the primary port
2. SATA cable is faulty
3. SATA drive is faulty

The most common solution is to move the cable to the primary/first port

Laptop doesn't show up in acer listing


Probably the model number of your Acer Aspire 3620 is already discontinued or placed into their archive files. Also, possibility that such model was produced in limited quantity & distributed only to a certain location like in the Philippines. I suggest to email them for your concern thru service@acer.com.ph, for their customer service & support. best regards
