There can be two possible reasons for this: Defrag checks your hard drive for errors before it runs and will not run if you have bad sectors. You can run "chkdisk /f" from the command prompt (Start, run, CMD, enter) to fix those errors. Secondly, you could have less than 10% of drive space left on your Hard Drive. In this case you would need to burn some stuff to DVD or delete unwanted programs to free up enough space. If these don't work, you will need to provide more detailed information so that we can help you better.

When you going to fix it from bening slow and takes to long to load


PCs will slow over time, that is inevitable. What you should try is defragmenting your laptop. Go to the start menu and search for defrag. Open the defrag application and then defragment your drive.

USING VISTA HOME PREMIUM OPERATING SYSTEM ON MY PC.........I can never get the defragment to finish.even if I leave the computer on for hours.... the computer does not show status of the defragment... so I...


maxroniy

If the defrag is running slow and/or runs along time but does seem like finishing look at how much free space you have. If you have less than 15% free space this will not allow you to get a good defrag of the system. You might try moving some files to another drive while you do the defrag. Also try uninstalling some programs this can help too. Then after you get the system defraged then you can put the files back and reinstall your programs.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Can't defragment the C portion of the disc


On some systems it will allow you to defragment with lower than 15% of your hard drive, but sometimes some programs refuse to defragment if it is lower than that. I suggest trying to free up at least 900 MB in the drive and try defraging.

Hi!

Seen that before! microsofts defrag tool isent the best one if i may say so. If you have any programs running in the background it wont finnish, so you can either stop all running programs manualy and the defrag will finnish, OR you can Use another defrag tool,
Here are two:
O&O Defrag is one of the best, but its not free:

Auslogics Disk Defrag is a good toll and its free:

Tried a few defrag programs and some of the files won't defrag


Try using the free AusLogics Disk defrag program (http://auslogics-disk-defrag.en.softonic.com/) If that does not work, you can download a free trial of Perfect Disk Defrag at http://www.perfectdisk.com/home. This program allows you to not only defrag large files, but also consolidate free space, schedule when you want to defrag, and select the files you want to defrag. These are two of the better defrag programs out there. Auslogic also makes a good registry defrag located at http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/registry-defrag/download. They all work great and are good to have. I use them.

My aspire1 has blank screen with just the pointer on .the pointer wont move and i cant get onto screen


Your laptop may need defragmenting. It is possible for everything to lock up if the hard drive is too badly fragmented.

Try starting up in safe mode. Press F8 shortly after switching on then select start in safe mode.

The defragmenter is in the START MENU / PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / SYSTEM TOOLS.

Select defragment.

It may take a few minutes to a few hours.

It is necessary to regularly defragment (two or three times a week), many people aren't aware that the operating system will definately slow down or crash if you dont.

Hope this helps.
