It won't complete the defrag. Does that mean the hard drive is going bad? The laptop is very slow, hard drive spins a lot.


You definitely should back up your files before trying to solve the issue. To defrag first check if you have enough free space and if some programs are running that are interrupting the task. Run a diskcleanup and chkdsk. The Windows defrag program will not defrag under less than 15% free space and also sometimes if other programs write to the disk while its running. So download the trial version of a reliable commercial defragger and try. (They will defrag in less than 5% free space and run in the background).

My computer can't defrag, it just runs for hours on end.


I haven't used the default defrag prog in windows for a long time but it was always known to take forever if regular defrags had not been performed.

This will be the case for any defrag prog. however there are faster ones out there. Try the following free one and defrag weekly.

For the last few days I've been experiencing problems . these problems are that when I try to copy/paste/move or delete/recycle it takes for ever in windows vista wheter if the file is big or small. can...


Could be a simple disk speed issue, try a defrag of the system disk (right-click and in tools select defrag).
Indexing of the disk can also affect performance, so you could try disabling that. Last thing I can think of is the location of the TEMP files, make sure it is not running full.

Help me with my laptop being slow


This folder is there because your system was upgraded (Possibly from Windows XP) to Vista. If you're satisfied with using Windows Vista and don't think about changing it back to what you had before, it's safe to delete these files.

Are they the same - windows vista 32 bit platform edition and windows vista home basic 32 bit sp1


Yes and no. Think of 'platform' as a general header when looking at operating architectures (there are different types) and Vista choices.
Vista choices under the 'platform' 32-bit are:
• Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit
• Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
• Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
• Windows Vista Business 32-bit
• Windows Vista Enterprise 32-bit

Another example of the "64-bit platform" and Vista choices are:

• Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition

Registry file corrupted after chkdsk /f


all your old files should be in windows.old so you should be able to rescue any pics and music, documents etc.
i might add there is a standalone rescue cd you can make... do a google for vista rescue disk to find it.
In your case i would suggest at this point to save all the files in the .old folder that you want to keep.... and reinstall vista ... use the complete format option but only after you back up the files.

Unable to defragment


If defrag won't run at all and says you don't have enough room on the drive, you may need to delete some unused files. Defrag needs some empty space while it's working.

Defragging the drive is best done in safe mode so that nothing else will be running to interfere with the process. Turn your computer on, then after the Compaq logo screen comes up, press the F8 a few times (you're only supposed to have to press it once, but sometimes it doesn't seem to work). You should then get a startup menu. Choose "safe mode." Once Windows is running (the screen may look funny because of color and resolution settings) you can start defragmenting. Start this before you go to bed and let it run overnight. When it's all done you can shutdown and then restart normally.

Hope this is helpful.
