Clean everything useless off from that C drive and see how much free space left there is.
If the free space is enough for your future use, you just do whatever you want to do. But, if the free space is not enough, don't worry. Simply transfer some free space of other partition to this C partition.
To move that partition space successfully, you can follow this video tutorial to do it step by step:

Note: Act carefully not to lose any needed partition data. Just back up all needed data well at first.

How many partitions do you have on your notebook?
If there is not only the C partition, you can check whether there is enough free space on other partitions. If there is, just move the free space of other partitions to this C partition.
Open Disk Management and shrink or delete one partition with enough free space. And then, right click that C partition to "extend" there.
Of course, if you don't know much about that, you also can directly use partition resizing software to take chances. Immediately resize your C drive partition space.
In case of drive data loss problems, just back up all partition data well.

The simplest solution is to run Disk Cleanup as follows....
1. click start then hi-light All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on Disk Cleanup
2. wait while Disk Cleanup calculates how much space you will be able to free on ACER (C:)
3. in the Disk Cleanup for ACER (C:) under Files to delete:
4. click to set the check-boxes of the groups of files you wish to delete
5. at bottom of the list is the Total amount of disk space you gain
6. click OK button and on Disk Cleanup for ACER (C:) pop-up, click the Yes button
7. redo the preceding, clicking on the More Options tab to free more disk space from other areas.

My Acer 5100 model #BL51 has a black screen after I fixed the pxe-053 problem...I dont know what to do...Help?


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Does the Aspire 5100 have bluethooth


Hi,

This do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth Function. This Model only have Bluetooth Module. If you wish, you could Purchase a Bluetooth Kit and have that Function installed :-

http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2037&zenid=3d219fb2254791e6177a79a33c4ce4ea

Most of the Acer Models do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth. Usually i would say, use Bluetooth Toggle, rather than Purchasing a kit. A Bluetooth toggle is just like a Pen Drive.You need to install the CD and load the software. Once Loaded, insert the Toggle in the USB of the Computer and synchronize it with other device.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

Unless I am mistaken, the D drive or partition is the partition that contains the restore feature for yor laptop. This may or may not be hidden system files. As far as the available free space on your C drive, you WILL need to either delete files and/or backup and delete files. Image files, music files, cookies temp files take up a lot of disk space. Try this and I think you will find more free space. BPCS

C: Drive space issue


Hi Ginnydoll,

You need to used Hard Drive Partition which you can resize your available space by increasing drive C: capacity and decreasing available space in your drive d: capacity without deleting any files on it. And this is not a harmful to your hard drive all your important files are intact in each destination.

If my solutions sounds great please email me for further assistance. diazphi@gmail.com. because it is really hard to demonstrate on this page because there is no features to attached pictures for visual instructions.

best regards,

Philip
