Why do you think that partitioning will increase speed? Memory is the only true way to increase speed or get a faster processor. Partitioning is for dividing up space on your drive and saving data in other places or Dual Booting. You will have to use Partition Magic software of some other software if you operating is already installed. You will stand the chance of losing Data if you do not know how to do partitioning. There is no way to properly tell you how to do a partition when your computer is loaded. Now if you want to re-format your hard drive, and start all over with everything that is a different ball game. That again is not very safe if you do not know what a partition even is. I am curious. Where did you hear that this will improve performance? I will explain how you can improve performance. Do the following.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

Solution of low disk space


HARD DISK MAINTENANCE TO KEEP COMPUTER RUNNING EFFICIENTLY.

Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently.
This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access.
Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too.
Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment.
When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

Sir, hard disk is not partioned. so,you may give some idea.


Hello
Many laptops does not work as Pc desktops thats why sometimes we need the branded Cd Disk to perform All installation steps using that Cds only (Branded)

If tried with other CDs the Laptop may stop working and error may arise so make sure you are using the branded Cds and perform needed installation if Hard disk does not get partitioned after using the branded Cds then check for the Hard disk slave and master option and Cmos setuputility
you can remove the hard disk and use other system o partition it
this may fix your problem

Ensure it has plenty of ram.....at least 2-4 GB,
Perform a disk cleanup found by accessing the hard drive letter by double clicking on My Computer / right click on "C" drive / properties / disk cleanup and tick ALL boxes.
Ensure you have a BOUGHT antivirus and update online / scan.
Download / update and install a free anti spyware program called "Malwarebytes" and scan "all the computer"

How can i increase my hard disk's capacity? my C:\


You need to change the HDD to increase the disk capacity. If you have more free space in D drive and you want to increase the disk size of C drive , then use partition magic software to increase the C drive partition.

Toshiba Satelite A65-S1762 hard drive problem


That means that the disk has a bad sector.

Try chosing the option to format the hard drive during the system installation.

If that does not work, then replace the hard drive.
