No PC told, no telling if HDD is boot drive.
no told OS you run, windows 10?
we can not see over your shoulder and know what is in your had.
tell what PC you have. first.
gee, golly wise, man.
then is this a 2nd drive to add or the boot drive now to be replaced
1TB drives come in.
and more, sata and scsi and sas and FiberCh.
1TB tells me not a thing, even external drives.
or if super lost post photo of your PC first.

or just need backup space.
internal or external drives .what?
the SSD 1TB is $100 can you afford that?
? if yes get that.
forget HDD if not backing up 1000 movies.
Well it seems that you are in a bad situation my friend. So let me help you out.
It seems that your system files are corrupt & preventing it to go to windows (may be due to improper shut-down).
What to do?
Please remove the hard disk from your laptop, put it in an external 2.5" casing. Then plug it to another laptop or pc having a good anti-virus. Now switch on the other computer. The system will correct the files on boot. If this doesn't happen, go to my computer after boot. Locate the HDD in my computer \ your HDD \ properties \ tools \
Here you'll run chkdisk & scan for errors, bad sectors etc. After that scan for any virus in that HDD. Now back up your important stuffs & send it to your DATA partition.
Now shutdown laptop & remove the HDD from the casing, then put it back in your laptop. Now boot & see your problems solved.
Please send us your feedback & vote to motivate us.Thanks.
Any anti airus program will use more and more disk space as time goes on. Every time it updates, it gets more virus information. Also, if you use the internet, you will get cookies and junk from every site you go to. Under tools-internet options, clear everything off when you get done with the internet. Anything you add to your computer and then remove, leaves a lot of info. in the registry files. Ge a registry cleaner and run it. It will not only get rid of a lot of junk, it will also help your computer run faster. There is NO way to keep your hard drive from geting less and less space as time rolls on, other than removing a lot of stuff.
Get AVAST AntiVirus. It's free and just as good as the ones you pay a lot of money for. It also updates automatically.
This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...
If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory. You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu. But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method. (1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA. You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb. (2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord. There is 2 type on RAM in currently. DDR1 and DDR2
you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.
well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)
