Hi I am trying to download skype 5.5 free version and it is not going past skypetm -Install window.. I hv tried to wait for almost an hour but nothing has worked so far.. Will appreciate help solving the...

Maybe you need some hard disk space and Skype requires at least 256 MB of RAM and 18 MB of free hard-disk space for installation files. Try to delete some of your files that are not necessary especially images. To find out how much free disk space is on your computer:

  • Open your "My Computer" folder by clicking the icon on your desktop. If you do not have a shortcut on your desktop, open your "Start" menu and right-click on the "My Computer" icon.

  • 2 Right-click on your hard drive icon. Generally, the hard drive is named the C: drive. Select the "Properties" option from the drop-down menu.

  • 3 Read the pie chart and accompanying information to determine how much free disk space your hard drive has. Windows operating systems use blue to indicate how much disk space you are using and purple to depict how much free space is available.

  • If you have enough space, try to download SKYPE

    If this would help you please don't forget to give rating.

    Thank you for using FixYa. : )

    Adding more hard space

    If you are running out of hard disk space you need to do disk maintenance to recover lost disk space.
    Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

    If you still need more disk space you can add another hard disk to your computer as a slave hard drive. You can move your data to this new hard drive and free up disk space on your C Drive.

    I have a low disk space. Can I install this 250GB 7200 RPM Desktop ATA Hard Drive, and will it work OK. Or what else ?

    It may not work because the BIOS may not support a hard drive with this large capacity. Check the specification of your computer. The other option is to install it and then check the BIOS.
    If you install this hard drive in a USB hard drive adapter case, and plug it into the USB port, most likely it will see it as and external storage device with over 200 GB capacity. You lose a small capacity when you format the hard drive.

    Sony VAIO PCV-RS410 memory maxed @ 1G. Can I install different motherboard with more memory?

    You could, but to be honest you're probably going to spend more money and time than it's worth.

    If you're having speed issues, one possible solution is to clear space off your hard drive and run defragmentation. Your hard drive should never be over 80% of its capacity; otherwise the system can't run at peak efficiency.

    If the PC still isn't running to your liking, then I'd recommend shopping for a new one.

    My disk will not allow me to add doc. It says there is not enough free space. But I've only got a few docs on it.

    Insert it in a USB 2.0 port. Wait until computer recognizes it. Open the computer explorer (Click on My computer icon on desktop). Right click the SanDisk drive icon and select Properties. You should be able to see a pie chart of the contents of the drive (free space/used space). You will also see the total capacity.
    It is not the number of documents that counts, but the total weight (number of MB of the lot). A single movie may occupy 4 GB of disk space.

    Hope it helps.

    How Can I Speed Up My Slow PC?

    Go to Trend Micro and run Housecall to check your PC for viruses and spyware.
    If it is still slow go to Start and click on My Computer. Right click on your C: drive and choose Properties. Run the Disk Cleanup. When that finishes click on the Tools tab and do a Check Disk and Disk Defrag.
