How to solve low memory problems?


Normally this warning message shows when you run many programs same time than the RAM installed on your computer is designed to support. Your can solve this problem by increasing the system paging file size also called as virtual memory. Using this virtual memory windows moving information to and from the paging file for fast processing. This will free up enough RAM for other programs to run properly.

To increase the system page file follow the give path:

Control Panel > System > Advanced > Click on Settings (Under Performance) > Advanced > Change

Here under Drive (Volume label), you have option to select any of your hard disk drive, but the best choice is, select any drive other than C drive for virtual memory.

Set the double Initial & Maximum Size of your Virtual Memory. Here set initial size 700 MB and maximum size up to 1000MB; you can change this size according to the free space available on your hard drive.

My harddrives cd image partition is readable but another 1tera byte part is not getting detectd. please help


Sometimes my external drive fails to mount. What I do to force it is follow these steps:

Click start and open up a command line window. Either find it in the Accessories folder or type cmd at the search.
In the cmd window, type 'diskpart'. A new command window might pop up. In the new window, or the same one if a new one doesn't pop up, then type 'list volume'. It will list a number of volumes on the system in the form:
Volume ## Ltr Label FS Type Size Status Info.
Find your hard drive in this list and note the volume number. I usually find the hard drive by comparing Sizes, but it should also show your hard drive's name under Label.
Next type 'select volume x' where x is the volume number for your volume. So for instance if your hd happened to be listed as Volume 3, you would type 'select volume 3'.
Now, type 'assign letter=G' or whatever letter you want your volume to be. Once you've done this, your volume should be mounted and you should be able to access your drive normally.

My nephew has old version of hp laptop i have newer version of hp he opened bottem of my laptop to compare sizes of hardware driver i think he swapped them over how can i tell please isabel spence


It's not likely your nephew has swapped drives. Unless the two computers were the same or very close models, his disk would not have the same information on it as the one from your computer. You said his was older and yours newer; they might not even have the same versions of Windows installed. If the hard drives were switched, neither computer would start up properly then. If your computer is running correctly, it should still have the original drive.

You can check the disk size either by opening the cover on the bottom and looking at the label, or getting the disk information from Windows when the computer is operating. When you know the size of the drive in your computer, you can check that it is the one that belongs there. Unless you removed it, HP puts a sticker on each computer telling what size drive and the amount of memory is in it.

I have a Snap Server which is close to 10 years old. Inside the Snap Server are two Quantum Fireball CX 3.5 Series drives. How do I tell the size of these drives?


> Quantum 13Gb FIREBALL CX

What is printed on the labels on the top of each disk?
What is the model-number?
Do a GOOGLE-search on that model-number, to see what others have written about that model,
including the "specifications".

FORMAT drive: [/Q] [/1] [/4] [/8] [/B | /S] [/C]
/V[:label] Specifies the volume label. /Q Performs a quick format. /F:size Specifies the size of the floppy disk to format (such as 160, 180, 320, 360, 720, 1.2, 1.44, 2.88). /B Allocates space on the formatted disk for system files. /S Copies system files to the formatted disk. /T:tracks Specifies the number of tracks per disk side. /N:sectors Specifies the number of sectors per track. /1 Formats a single side of a floppy disk. /4 Formats a 5.25-inch 360K floppy disk in a high-density drive. /8 Formats eight sectors per track. /C Tests clusters that are currently marked "bad."

volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name. /FS:filesystem Specifies the type of the file system (FAT, FAT32, or NTFS). /V:label Specifies the volume label. /Q Performs a quick format. /C Files created on the new volume will be compressed by default. /X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary. All opened handles to the volume would no longer be valid. /A:size Overrides the default allocation unit size. Default settings are strongly recommended for general use.
NTFS supports 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16K, 32K, 64K.
FAT supports 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16K, 32K, 64K, (128K, 256K for sector size > 512 bytes).

FAT: Number of clusters <= 65526 FAT32: 65526 < Number of clusters < 268435446
Format will immediately stop processing if it decides that the above requirements cannot be met using the specified cluster size.
NTFS compression is not supported for allocation unit sizes above 4096.

Media settings for thermal labels


The size of the labels you wont have to tell. In the control panel of the printer you will have to tell it to print thermal and that will turn the film transfer roller off.

You may have to tell it the size though in the software you are using.

Problems with avery mac label expert


To reset the size in your printer to the correct A4 size, do this:
Go to your Applications folder on your hard drive. 
In it, you will find a Utilities folder. 
Inside that folder, you will find a folder called "Printer Setup Utility."
Inside THAT folder, you will find a list of printers you have connected to your Mac. 
Click on one. You will see, at the top of your screen, a set of menus. Click on the "Printer Setup Utility" menu at the far left. 
Choose "Preferences" from the drop-down list. 
You will see a dialog box with three options: Printing, Sharing, and Faxing. If Printing is not automatically displayed, click on the Printing tab. 
At the bottom of the Printing dialog box, you will see another pull-down menu: "Default paper size in page setup"
Choose A4, or whatever size you wish. 
Close up all the boxes, and print your labels to your heart's content. 
When you're done with your labels, don't forget to repeat this process to switch your printer back to your ordinary size paper. 
Hope this helps.
