hi
I'm having a problem with the laptop, is about two months old and it shows that the hard drive (40G) is almost full. the laptop was slow at first and I managed to get the speed back. any idea what might have filled up the disk?
help!!!
thanks

I don't know what you have on it, but as you can see 15gig can be taken up by Windows itself

Applying the official Ludens Reality Adjustment yields the following minimums:
CPU
600 MHz (single CPU for Home edition, Single or dual for Professional edition)

RAM
256 MB

Disk Space
15 GB free

Video Card
1024x768

If you right click on the disk drive

select properties.

click disk cleanup.

it will suggest what can be removed

at that point if you select more options, it will show you various thing that can be causing it.

Is your page file an excessive size? Have you tried turning off hibernation, see click here, Empty your browser cache, have you stored web pages for offline use? Check the system restore settings in My Computer Properties, this should be set to a max 12% of your drive.

What make & model is the laptop?

is running some sort of reload-to return it to factory condition-an option at this point?

Just in case this is an Acer laptop, you'll have two partitions.
