You can compress the disk and gain a little room which might meet your needs, otherwise you can buy a new disk and install it. I have cloned many laptop disk drives onto new ones. It does take some special cables and and a desktop computer to do however.

Before I do either, I'd try a disk clean up. Turn system restore off then back on to delete all the SR files. Down load CCleaner and run it against the disk and run the registry cleaner.

Disable Hibernation and delete Hiberfil.sys, if the space problem is critical on your System Drive. Its a hidden file on the root directory of your system drive. Open Control Panel. Type Hibernate in the search bar. Select turn Hibernate On / Off.

If you want to try the compress, double click My Computer, right click on the C:\drive, PROPERTIES, check Compress this drive.. This will take awhile so don't turn off the computer or let it shut down. Some say you should not compress the windows folder but I've never had a problem and they slow down is almost not noticable.

System gets slow down once its unplug even when the battery is full


A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

Sir, first find what is the brand of your sound card. In that way, you can easily find what you are looking for. If you don't know what the type is, you can contact HP to know the type of sound card driver you need. I hope that answered your question.
