Missing Memory from hard drive

I have A Lenovo 3000 N200. It says that there is 69.4 GB of memory. Of that 31 is currently in use. About 4 GB is free according to Windows. That leaves 34 GB unaccounted for. I have already spoken to Lenovo about Rescue and Recovery and removed that program but still have not seen an increase in available memory. Vista can on the computer and virus and spyware scans came up clean. I have only had the computer for about two weeks.

    I ran the task manager and unfortunately did not see any programs using more memory than they should.

Task manager will give you a great idea of what is using up your system memory. There are alot of processes that run in the background, and observing the memory usage tab should give you quite a bit of information to help you.

Good Luck !

    Hey thanks for voting. I am sorry that didn't give you a better idea of what was going on. Don't be discouraged though, there are a few programs on the Internet that can audit your pc and break down your memory usage.



    Hey , here's a thought: Try spacemonger , it should give that description that you need

    One last thought : If spacemonger doesn't help you account for the missing memory, then look at your partition. An app like Partition Commander , or Partition Magic could give you the idea if you have a poorly partitioned drive.

My HDDR500E03A 500 GB is only showing 3.98 GB on total memory, what happened to the rest?


The 3.98 GB you are seeing is probably your total RAM memory and not the storage capacity of the hard drive. RAM memory is completely unrelated to the hard drive capacities.

Double click on the MY COMPUTER icon.

You should then see all the disks and drives that are currently connected to your computer. Your USB hard drive should be one of the drives listed there.

Right click on each of them and select PROPERTIES from the menu shown. This will show you the storage capacity of each drive including how much space is used and how much is free (empty).

Good luck.

Cannot upgrade lenovo y400 memory to 4gb


That is because of window's limitations. Since you only have a 32-bit operating system installed, windows can only physically see a little over 3 GB of memory. The only way you can see that other memory is by installing either XP or Vista 64-bit operating system. Oh and please give this solution a fixya rating; I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
