    what's the operating system of your computer?

    if you're using windows XP, how did you partition your harddrive, basic or dynamic?

    do you have files on both partitions?

If you do not want to lose your data and make a single drive then the best option would be to buy Partition Magic software.

It works like a charm. I would also suggest to take the backup of the partitions before running Partition Magic (just to be on the safer side).

Let m know hat happens.

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,

Hello i just bought a samsung n250 netbook which says it should have 250gb harddrive, but when i go onto the harddrive says its only 94gb?


Is it possible that you have multiple partitions? on the drive?

Check the Disk management utility in windows to find this out.

To open the disk management utility, Right click on "My Computer" (in windows XP) or "Computer" (in Windows Vista and 7) and press manage. then click on disk management in the window that opens up and it will tell you if you have multiple partitions.

LAPTOP TELL ME i HAVE LOW DISK SPACE


This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...

If I were you I would pull the harddrive out, slave it to another machine and save all your documents before putting your harddrive back in and doing a full Dell restore.
Any wrong move at this point is likely to damage the MBR and render your machine unable to boot up at all.

File currupt


you can reload the operating system by pressing alt+F10 during boot. (if you still have recovery partition on your harddrive).
if you already deleted recovery partition from your harddrive, the only option is installing OS from cd.
