Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi, I am owning a dell inspiron 1525 for the last 3 years now. Few days ago when i was formatting my laptop to install a new OS, i accidentally deleted a partition and it became unallocated. My hard disk is of 160GB but now only 10GB is allocated which is the C drive containing the OS. The rest is allocated so the explorer is only showing the C drive of 10 GB. It is a big problem as i cant do anything or use anything like partition manager or use the windows inbuilt disk management to reallocate the lost space. I am using windows 7. Please reply ASAP.

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.

Problem in os


Try starting explorer by going to file\new task (run..) and typing explorer.

If it doesnt work, just type msconfig on the same box and go to startup tab, leaving everything unmarked, just reboot your pc and problem should be solved
