The hard drive files are not recognisable and threre are no file in my documents or my Local disk drive and my memory is full how do i fix this.


Ok I assume you get a virtual memory is low balloon at the bottom of the screen? If so then this is due to insufficient RAM to run the amount of programs or resource hogging programs like the newer internet explorer can be. If not and you have a low disc space balloon next to the clock then what you can do is first do a disc clean up which is found in start all programs accessories system tools disc cleanup. It make take a long time if your hard drive is filled with a bunch of temp files as well as old files and Once it is up check everything and let it clean up all of the un-necessary things. This will take awhile as well. Once it is complete I would suggest you do a disk defragment as after deleting a lot of files it can cause things to get fragmented and slow your computer down. this can be done by going to start all programs accessories system tools and disk defragment. You can analyse the disk if you want to see how fragmented it is before defraging as it will tell you if it really needs to be defraged or not. And that is about it. If you need further assistance just comment to say if this helps.

Over a couple of months my Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop keeps telling me I have very low disk space. Ive removed all my pics, music and alot more! it is pratically empty now! I regulary have to run Disk...


'Low Disk Space' Could be talking about your virtual memory. Sounds as if your RAM is experiencing problems and your Virtual Memory cache is not high enough.

Try running disk defragmentor and disk cleanup (can access in control panel or just type in the search bar on start button) if that doesn't help let me know.

I believe I have a virus or worm that Norton cannot detect


Ok. How much space do you have free on your hard-drive right now? (I'm assuming that you know how to check this).

If its low, then maybe you didnt free up enough space on the drive. If it is high however, then answer this: is the message you are receiving telling you that you are low on disk space? or is it telling you that it is low on virtual memory space?

if its low on virtual memory, then the problem could be many including 1) virus etc 2) a program is running that is using up more RAM than is avaivable 3) you need more RAM on your system.

if its low disk space, then the problem could be 1) You need to free up more disk space (that may mean getting a bigger hard-drive installed)

Try using an updated virus scanning utility. If it says that you are virus free, then try one of the solutions above.

Low virtual memory


Virtual memory means you're running out of memory, so it's using your hard drive storage as memory. This is slow. This is an indication you: Have too little memory and need to run fewer programs or install more memory; and also increase the size of your virtual memory, which will also make your disk space tighter. If you are really pinching the computer that badly, you may want to consider buying a new laptop altogether -- the prices have come down a -lot- just in the 2 1/2 years since you bought that. Anyway, to work around the immediate problem:

Your Gateway came with Windows XP Home Edition. Click Start: Control Panels. See if you can find the Performance control panel, possibly by switching to "Classic view." In there, look for the memory tab. Find the virtual memory section. It may be set to "Let Windows decide." change it to at least 1000mb.

You can get a bigger hard drive (after buying an external case to move stuff over) and upgrade your memory to as much as 1.25gb; but you may find those purchases to not be sensible relative to the price of a new laptop. Memory is cheap and relatively easy; the hard drive is more difficult and will set you back at least $100 if you do it yourself.

Go into control panel, system, advanced. Under system performance, click settings. Click on advanced and under virtual memory click on change. Make the initial size 1024 and the max size 2048. Click okay on everything to get out of there. Reboot your computer and you're done.

Run your disk defrag after taking off your files. Also, get more ram so the machine doesn't use the hard drive for virtual memory as much.
