THe Presarion keeps telling me that it is running out of space. What should I do?

Add another hard drive and/or compress the drive that you have. If using XP, click on "My Computer" to open it, right click the "Local Disk (C:)", select "properties" and check the box next to "compress drive to save space", then click "apply".

You can also go into My Documents and delete any large files that you don't need. You can go to: start > settings > control panel > Add or remove programs, and uninstall any programs that you don't need, too.

Also, don't forget to empty the recycle bin.

That is an old computer, so, if you decide to add another hard drive you will need a PATA drive as opposed to a SATA drive, such as one of these:

You will have to make master and slave settings on the drives. Here is a tutorial and how to make the jumper settings:

In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone

Hi my computer runs real slow ive use mcafee to try to clean it but it seems to be still running slow

Click Start-> Run, type msconfig and click Ok. The System Configuration Utility will start. Now click on Startup tab. You will see a list of programs which starts automatically when Windows starts.
In that list, uncheck the program items, which you generally don't use. It will make your computer a little faster.
The above procedure can also be modified a little, that is uncheck all items under Startup tab, restart your computer.
Now check one item at a time, restart computer and test the speed of your computer. This way, you will find the programs, which are making the computer show. Remember to use a pen and paper to take a note about which items you are selecting or unselecting.

Please try one more thing:

Open Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> System. Click on Advanced tab. Under Performance, click on Settings, click on Adjust for best performance, click Apply and Ok.

Then do this Click->Start->Programes->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Clean Up and select the C:Drive and clean it

Program will not open

If a program will not open

1. uninstall the program from the add/remove
2. attempt to reinstall the program
3. attempt to run the program
4. if the program will still not open go to step 5

5. Some programs may be incompatable with your operating system and fail to open, if you have windows XP or vista you can right click on the executable

an executable (file) causes a computer to perform indicated tasks according to encoded instructions.

and click the compatability mode tab , then change what operating system is reported to the program, then hit apply and attempt to run the program again.


6. if after changing compatability setting of the to windows 95 the program still does not open
change the compatability to windows 98/windows me , hit apply and attempt to run the program again.

7. if after changing the compatability mode to windows 98/windows me , and your program still does not open , change the compatability setting to windows NT 4.0 (service pack 5), hit apply and attempt to run the program again.

8. if after changing the compatability mode to windows NT 4.0 ( service pack 5 ) and your program fails to rurn , change the compatability mode to windows 2000 , hit apply and attempt to run the program again.

9. if after changing the compatability mode to all of the available settings your program still fails to run , you may have a corrupt executable or an executable that is not compatable with your operating system.

The setup wizard on the CD will not automatically run when inserted in the CD-ROM drive, what do i do?

  1. click on start
  2. My computer
  3. right click on CD/DVD Drive
  4. Left click auto run

selecting My Computer, right-clicking the drive that contained the CD-ROM, and selecting Properties. click the AutoPlay tab and select the Select an action to perform option, then double-click the program to use to run the CD-ROM. This action launched the program on the CD-ROM. Note that simply highlighting the program you want to use and clicking OK or Apply doesn't work; you must double-click the program and force it to launch on the CD-ROM or DVD in the drive. The CD-ROM then ran automatically, using the program associated with it on the AutoPlay tab.

DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs

Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..
