How do you know something is taking up space on your hard drive? What is your operating system? First thing you should do is check your waste basket. Is it full? Then check your cookies and temporary internet files. Delete all you do not need. Then if you go to your Windows Explorer, you can check the size of each file on you hard drive. Go to Local Disk C:. Open all folders by clicking on each + sign to the left of each folder. Then start at the top and work your way down checking each folder. You should see a folder that has a lot of files in it, or one large file, maybe a folder you do not recognize. Click on and delete the folder that is taking up to much space. If you delete any folders do not empty you waste basket until you are sure you did not delete anything you will need.

Hp mini no memory to do anything


Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive. Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

HP Mini 1000 VT won't turn on, lights flash when plugged in


Hello,

This is a common issue when the unit has been dropped or jarred really hard. The click is more than likely the hard drive trying to read the disk but can not access information.

With that in mind, try this: Remove all USB, SD, or any cards and attachment from you computer. If you have one at hand, connect an external monitor to the pc. Power on. If you get an image on the external monitor, restart pc and press F8, select "Enabel-low-resolution video" and move forward. If you get a picture after this, your video drivers need updating. BUT......

The clicking sound is a major concern because usually the hard drive is the only hardware part that have moving parts. (other than the optical drive or if you have a solid state hard drive.) If you have a dard drive the same size or close with an operating system on it, replace your hard drive with the GOOD drive and retry. If it boots, you need to replace the hard drive. (and hopefully you have a backup of your data)

Worst case, you may need an authorized HP agent to service your pc.

Good Luck

Hi Brad i have a hp mini 1000 and its asking for insert boot media boot device


Your hard drive is either bad, lost the boot record, or the operating system is corrupt. You will need an external optical drive and a copy of the restore discs from HP to fix the system. First thing I would do is have this unit serviced to make sure that the hard drive is not bad.

A disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart hp mini 110


If you can get it to boot to safe mode (f8), go to C/properties/ schedule a disk check and see if that repairs the problem.
If that does not work, there is a possibility that the hard drive is failing. This will mean having the laptop taken apart to check and replace the hard drive. You will then need an external Cdrom drive to reinstall Windows on the new drive. Or use a USB stick to install (difficult).

If you DO get the netbook to boot under safe mode, check the hard drive using this tool:

If the scan shows that the RSC is failing ( areas shown in red or yellow) or the main scan shows bad sectors, get your data off as quickly as possible as the drive will fail soon.

You can also boot into the bios (I think its f12) and check SMART technology tab, this will alert you if the drive is failing

My computer wont boot up.


depends what the error is. I don't know why people never include them in the problem statement, it would make things easier.

Usually there is a cover with a single or two screws where your hard drive is installed. You can remove the cover, take out the one or two holding screws for your hard drive "slide" it out, and then push it back in and reseat it if you think that is the problem. Do you hear the system fan? Do you hear the hard drive running? What does the bios message say while it is booting (the white letters before windows loads) If it goes by too fast you can pause it so you can read it....Try going into setup when it boots and see if your bios has a hard drive test. Laptop hard drives do go out...some of them right away. They are very sensitive to heat (don't run laptop on top of a bed, blanket, pillow, or any other such thing that prevents ventilation) and vibrations and bumps and such that may occur while running. If any of this has happended, it's possible the hard drive has become damaged. Only way to tell is to test it somehow...either in bios, or on another machine.
