Hi there @Superuserhp, Welcome back to the HP Support Forums! I understand that you are looking for a replacement fan for your computer. I am happy to help with this. I would recommend that you check out the HP Parts Store. Be sure that your country is selected and then put in the product information. If the part is not currently in stock, there will likely be authorized sellers listed for the part as well. Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

My Vista system folder free space becomes smaller and smaller quite quickly.

I increased a few GB but it is occupied again in a month.

I then downloaded Malicious Software Removal Tool. After run it for more than 10 hours, something was removed. However, the free space is still remain small.

How can I know what rubbish is occuping my system folder and can you tell me how to remove them if any?

Thank you in advance for your help!

A:My Vista system folder free space becomes smaller and smaller quite quickly

The most probable cause of your problem is
System Restore points.
Reduce the amount of space that they occupy
System Restore - disk space

Run a full anti virus scan, download and run a full scan with malwarebytes

Your own stuff
Download windirstat and see whats on the drive

alright so here is my issue, my laptop HP Pavilion dv7 notebook PC, running windows 7 is having a slight issue. For the past weeks i have noticed that my hard drive space is shrinking, even though i have not been placing any new files on computer
my specs are windows 7, intel core i7, installed memory (RAM) 6.00GB, system type is 64bit
and i only now have left 10.1GB out of 450GB

i have purchased a external drive and moved all personnel files and movies and so on

i even deactivated hybernation on my pc, which gave me an extra 7GB
i then ran disk clean and deleted temp files

also ran defragment but after 6 days, i gave up as it was still running, then i tried to run ccleaner and that ran for 6 days as well with it being stuck at 0%

not sure what else i can do, buddy of mine suggested that my drive is just dying and i'mim due for a new 1
is that correct?
is there anything else i am missing, what am i doing wrong
and why is the space getting less, i'm sure within the next few days it'll be down to 0GB

please help!

thank you

I have an mpg that I took with my digital camera. I've posted it on a web page, but at about 20 MB only people with broadband can really see it. I have some relatives with only dialup that I'd like to be able to share it with.

Is there a way that I can make the mpg smaller? I know this means that it will probably mean a loss of picture quality but that's OK.

Also, is there a way to remove the soundtrack to try to save some more space?

To make a long story short; I basically tried to install a 2nd operating system on 1 hard drive using PartitionMagic, and didn't install it right away. A few restarts later, I got the black screen - blinking cursor. A fixboot/fixmbr command later, and I get the NTLDR is missing error. I then installed a HDD out of another one of my PCs that had WinXP Home on it already (used the disc to repair the XP files because of the hardware changes) and when I boot up to look at the HDD that I tried to install the 2nd OS on, it has 10.1 MBs on it? (it's a 400GB Seagate). I don't get it, why would there be 10MBs? I have a ton of files on this drive that I really need, any help would be greatly appreicated!!

A:HDD smaller than it really is?

Well now...........

I am not so sure I can help but I have a comment to make. It seems that what ever program you are using to show that screen is still seeing drive 1 as a FAT drive of the correct size. I am not sure if you messed up anything by making that mbr repair.
If you have Paragon Hard Disk Manager try running that and see what is says is going on. I have found that program really good at making things right. Sometimes it can be that the drive is not mounted (command from the old days) and that needs to be done. Be careful and dont make any rash decisions until you ask some others around here too.
You may be only showing the drive D you made up above in the list but below it seems to show that D is 372.61gb!! It could be that windows has not fully seen the whole disk 1 (mounting partitions etc) and would add another drive letter if you rebooted. You do have a potential mess so go slowly is my advice.
If you have messed up drive 1 with what you did, a reboot wont hurt it any further.

Hi Peeps!

Just a quick question.

Being a 'newbie' at WIN 2000 Pro, I had a few attempts at installing my new OS, four times to be precise!
I was doing a clean install on a Maxtor 80GB HD, WIN 2000 detected it as being 81GB in size.

I was new to the NTFS file system (as being used to using the FAT32 file system) I didn't have a clue as to what was happening at the time!
But after reading many posts here I realised a couple of things, firstly, WIN 2000 detects a HD larger than 32BG in size so formats automatically in NTFS ( my first mistake - I wanted FAT32) so, I formatted using 'FORMAT C: command. Now I have a HD that is 76GB in size with three partitions!

2 at 29GB
1 at 18GB

76GB available ......
question is, what happened to the other 5GB?

I have decided to format the whole thing again, this time using the recommended file system NTFS.
But before I do this, I must find out what happened to the
lost 5 GB. Am I not using the 'FORMAT' command correctly?

Any help greatly appreciated!
Thanx, Kermit.

Hey Everyone,
Hopefully you guys can help me out here. I recently purchased and installed a new Maxtor Diamond Max 10 7200RPM IDE 200GB Hard Drive. Here's the Problem, after installing, partitioning, formatting, and assigning a drive letter, the drive shows up as healthy, but only as a 128GB drive. I thought that I might have gotten a factory dud or something, but then I looked at the properties of the new drive and it says that there are 68.5GB used and 128GB free on the drive, which would give me something like 195GB, which is more reasonably. The only problem is that there is nothing on the drive at all!

Is there anything I can do to clear up that space? I didn't set multiple partitions, so there should only be one full block of space, right?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, the C: partition is smaller than the D: partition. If you want to change that, you have to repartition.

Is there a way to change the image size of the desktop? As in xp I like having smaller icons and smaller text.

A:Smaller Icons

Hopefully this should help:

Make the text on your screen larger or smaller

You can make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You do this by increasing the dots per inch (DPI) scale. You can also decrease the DPI scale to make text and other items on your screen smaller, so that more information fits on the screen.

Click Start

Click to open Control Panel

Click to open Personalization.

In the left pane, click Adjust font size (DPI). If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:

To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)?make text more readable, and then click OK.

To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)?fit more information, and then click OK.

To see the changes, close all of your programs, and then restart Windows.

Hi guys!
I have a 500 GB HDD and my OS is windows 7 64-bit and I want to image the whole drive onto a 240 GB SSD. Actually I first did this using the windows back up and restore function but it failed to restore the backed up OS because the SSD is smaller than the old HDD, although I have only used 70GB of the HDD.
So I tried to re-do it again by shrinking the OS partition into the minimum that it could but it was impossible to shrink it less than 260 GB

Now my question is, if I use MACRIUM REFLECT FREE to image from the 500GB drive onto an external disk of 200GB, and then from the external disk, I restore the image onto my new 240 GB SSD, will it work? Or is it just gonna turn out the same like I did with the windows back up and restore function?

Hi everyone,

I currently have 150gb Raptor drive on Windows 7. I create an image weekly of it onto a 320gb Spinpoint (E that I only use for data and images. I'm considering upgrading my Raptor to a 128GB SSD. Being that my current drive is bigger, would I be able to connect the smaller SSD drive in place of the Raptor, boot from my Win7 Disc, and restore the image from my E drive onto it? All the other image programs I've looked at require the destination drive to be bigger, or at least have the source partition be smaller than the destination. I tried shrinking my C drive partition (the only partition I have on the drive) but it would only let me shrink it by 141MB. I doubt a defrag will do much to change that enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to anyone that replies, I appreciate it. I have searched and searched, and can not find the answer- Is a divx file smaller than an avi file?
Also, for website/download use - which file type has the best size to quality ratio, other than an avi file. THanks

A:divx vs. avi - or which is really smaller

Divx is a way to compress video in an avi file. It's called a codecs.
The DivX codecs is used to make the avi file smaller, compressing the video datas.
DivX, Xvid and wmv9 are the best video codecs so far.

When you save a video clip as avi, you need to select a video codecs (eg. DivX) and an audio codecs (usualy Mp3) so that your avi file can fit on CD-r or something.

There was once a divx file but it's not used anymore because avi files do just as good.

first time i changed custom icon filename and i reloaded icon and it appears normal.. as soon as i change filename back to how ti should be named and apply icon again, it's smaller. example if file name is TombRadier.ico it works...if it's Tomb Raider.ico it's small icon. so i figure it's some kind of cache issue?

i deleted desktop.ini files from desktop and rebuilt it didn't help.
i deleted IconCache.db from $:\\AppData folder and restarted computer, didn't help either.
i have also deleted every singled thumbs.db file (know it might not help, but still)--

so i'm clueless now. what do i do? where does it store information that is corrupted?

Please help. thank you in advance.

PS. added screenshot again, it bugged last time

I have had this problem a few times but I can't remember what I did the last time because it was some time ago.

When you right click on the D:\ Drive and go to properties it comes up saying that the drive is 5.5GB but when you select the files in D drive the size is only 2GB. It says the drive has only 100mb free and the drive is 6GB & no I can't just make it bigger

There are no files directly under the root directory and hidden files or folders are showing. I ran the disk cleanup but that only freed up a littke bit of space, no fix the issue

When I click on a link in a web page, the link opens minimized. How can I have it open as a full screen.


A:Window opens smaller


This is a problem with windows as old as the hills. A few tricks to help are:
Before you make it full size by clicking on the box upper right. Pull the page make if look full size.
Never close a page unless it is full size. Click the upper right, middle box to make full size.
Do not close by clicking on the red x upper right. Close by going to file and then exit.
Go to search type explorer and then right clikc on Internet Explorer. Then properties and then shortcut and then run full size.

It take the system time to implement these changes, but the page will begin to open full size eventually.

hello , i realise i should have reaserched this before i ordered one , but how can i clone a 1tb HDD to a 128GB SSD ? the HDD is brand new , by which i mean only windows 10 updates and chrome browser and vlc player installed . Is there simple software that can do this ? , theresonly about 35gb of the HDD used including the os. Any help will be brilliant as im a novice at computer DIY .

A:How to clone larger HDD to smaller SSD

It is tricky. I use Acronis True Image Home and you need to do a custom clone without shrinking the utility and recovery partitions. If the installation is new there is not much reason to do a clone, however. If it is Windows 10 you can just download the .iso from Microsoft for your version of Windows 10 and do a clean install on the SSD then use the contents of the swsetup folder on the hard drive to reinstall drivers and apps and reinstall your chrome browser and VLC. That process would be free where Acronis costs money. The HP recovery disks will likely not work on a 128 gig drive or I would advise you to just make those disks and use them instead. Just google Windows 10 Media Creation tool and get the tool, then use the option to create media for Windows 10 64 bit and burn a DVD or put it on a thumb drive.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have tried EaseUs todo...... and apparently it has built in compression and will clone to a slightly smaller drive , apparently Acronis 2014 will not. I have a 1.5 TB drive in desk top but it is only 1/2 used , but I am having trouble cloning to a empty 1 TB drive. I thing it might be because even tho I dont have much data, the partions take up the entire 1.5 desktop drive. Is this normal and if so what programs will automaticly clone to a smaller disk.

thank you

A:Clone to smaller drive

Hi there,

You are trying to copy 750GB of data on a 1.5TB partition to a 1TB HDD? Is that correct?

What the cloning software is doing as you noted is copying the entire partition even if it's empty data. Macrium Reflect - Free can copy part of the partition and resize it to fit onto a small drive. (When I say part I mean the 750GB of data you have used and it will ignore the blank space.)

I installed a 60 gig SSD realizing it is too small after windows says there is only 55 gigs on the SSD instead of 60 ? After doing some reading, this is considered normal ?

A:SSD smaller then Original Size ?

Hi there
I think there are some posts somewhere on the forum about size reported on Disks.
Manufacturers obfuscate the issue deliberately because they treat say 1GB as exactly as 1000 MB and a MB 1s exactly 1 Million Bytes.

In Normal terminology (Windows etc) 1 Mega anything is 1024 X 1000.

So Windows will always report the disk has having less bytes than the manufacturer.

Pity - but true. The Manufacturers aren't going to change.

Hey guys,

looking to take advantage of the built-in backup that comes with Win7.

My main drive is a 640GB drive, and I have a 500GB drive that I can use as my backup drive.

Now, because my main drive is bigger than my backup, does that mean I can't do a full backup to the 500gb disk?

I won't use near 500GB of the 640GB on the main drive, so will it allow me to do a full systme image backup as long as my main drive used size is less than the size of my backup drive?

A:Windows 7 backup - To a Smaller HDD?

I'm not positive about W7's backup system, because I never got it to work for me, but with most any other backup software, it's not the size of the drive that matters, but the size of the data to be imaged that does. I'm assuming that your 640GB drive is not totally full...and probably not all in one partition. Personally, I prefer to select individual partitions for each image.

I'm trying to find some way of resizing windows smaller than their current limits, I don't know if it's possible (the sizes seem program specific rather than os wide) and due to not having any words to go off besides "resize" and "windows" searching is proving futile. Basically I'd like to make both chrome and photo viewer smaller, their windows are currently limited to about the same width with photo viewer being worse and limited by hight too. is there a way to remove this limit and make them infinitely resizeable, larger than screen resolution could also prove useful.

any help is much appreciated.

A:trying to resize windows smaller than they allow

You could try my WinDim freeware. It is simple to use. In this case, run it so it is in the Tray. Click the window you wish to size so it is the active window. Hit Winkey and 's' to pop up the sizing dialog.

You may have better luck sizing larger than the screen res. But many programs will guard against a minimum size that will make it unusable or just look really bad. If the programmer sets it up to handle sizing messages there's not much you can do.

I'm trying to clone my 2 TB HD, with only 300 GB used, to a new 480 GB SSD, and keep getting "not enough space" to finish transferring, etc.....I thought since the used portion (300 GB) being less than the target drive (480 GB SSD) this was a possibility with Macrium reflect/free....I'd appreciate any information on how to do this, or if it's not possible?
Thanks, Gil Howard

A:Cloning Windows 10 to smaller SSD

Hi Gil,

Yes, it can be done but I never did it using Macrium. I believe the ability to clone depends on the actual size of the partitions (and not the used space inside). Also, I think it would be advisable to post a disk management screenshot of your current drive so the person that will be helping you can actually see what you are dealing with and advise accordingly. Now, me being a dummy, I would most likely opt to shrink the partition before I cloned it but that may not be the best way to do it. Someone will be along to give you specific directions I'm sure. Good luck!

Basically OEM means that your Windows version will not work (either due to restore image, or just on legalities) by changing the proprietary OEM Motherboard

And none of the support or drivers will work again, ie from here:

You are much more safer and wiser to leave it standard, and then sell it complete, and build your own computer (if you want)

Don't change manufacture OEM hardware (update Ram and alike is ok, but not Motherboard)

Also the front wires may not connect to a new motherboard and the motherboard plate may not align up

The display on my laptop screen is smaller than my actual screen. There is about and inch an a half between the edge of the display and the edge of the screen.

What actually happened was I was playing the Sims 3 and the screen went blank. When it came back, it didn't fit the screen anymore and was as described above. I don't know what happened- I wasn't connected to the internet or anything.

My screen is normally set to 1024x768. If I set it to 1280x800, it goes back to normal and if I set it to 800x600 it gets even smaller. I know the obvious answer is leave it as 1280x800 (which is also the origional resolution), but I would prefer it to be 1024x768. I've never had any problems with this resolution before and if there's any way I can set it as my resolution and have it full screen I would be really grateful.

I have an issue where Outlook, as a whole, appears much smaller after logging into the computer remotely (VPN-RDP) from a MacBook and then coming back to the host computer. When you come back to the host computer Outlook is smaller, like it inherited the resolution from the RDP session.

Strangely enough, the rest of Windows and other applications retain their normal size. Only Outlook is affected. By smaller I mean that the windows, icons, folders, etc are smaller, giving a zoomed out feeling. This isn't just when reading or composing an email, I'm aware of those zoom functions. It's Outlook as a whole.

Hi again;

I have two icons both of the same thing. For some reason, the large icon is the only one that wants to go onto the desktop and allow me to associate a website shortcut link to it.

I want the smaller icon to represent the shortcut.

How do I do this?

I believe the reason for this problem stems fro the fact that the larger icon is a .ico image while the smaller image is a .png image.

Unfortunately, I am having trouble converting that .png image to a .ico image using the - Convert .PNG format files to .ICO or .ICO format files to .PNG : Windows Vista compatible icons that I have used before. Maybe I am not doing it right. In which case, maybe someone can tell me what I have done wrong?

I just tried to add the icons as an attachment so you could see what I am doing but unfortunately only the smaller icon (the .png image) would upload. The larger image (the .ico image) would not. It is listed as Invalid File. This does not compute!

I await any replies and help.

You need to reencode it at a lower bitrate. I don't use Ulead, so I'm not sure how to do it with Ulead, or even if it has that capability.

The display is smaller then the monitor?

A:My display is smaller then my monitor

Look in "Help" for screen resolution and try different settings. Also the buttons on the front of your monitor can make adjustments.

Hey I have this video of me playing piano that I wanted to put up on However the video is over 1 gig and is in .avi format. I need to make it less than 100 mbs to be put on the site. The recommended format is:

* MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format
* 320x240 resolution
* MP3 audio
* 30 frames per second
Any suggestions? Can I convert it in some way?

Here is the deal: I've downloaded 2 video AVI files. Before downloading them, i read that their sizes were 349.45mb, and i was happy that i could record both in one 700mb cd-r. Now that i have finished downloading them both sizes are 357.88mb. I don't know why the size has increased, but now i can't record both in one cd-r.

Why did the size of th file increased? And how can i make the file just a bit smaller to make the 2 files fit only one cd-r??

Thank you so much in advance. BTW i know little about camputers.

A:Making an AVI file smaller

it prob increased because of different ways of calculating the size, 1Mb isn't actually 1000K, it's actually 1024K so that would be y it has increased.

U could compress the files using winzip or somethin similar, but that would mean having to unzip before using (time consuming)

I've downloaded a movie that I want to watch on my TV, but I can't write it to the DVD because it's too large. It is 6.90 GB, but I need it to be 4.5 at most. When downloading the movie, I got many .rar files that I had to extract. Is there any way I can split the extracted movie into 2 parts, so I can write one half on one DVD and the other on another DVD, or do anything with it, so it fits on the disk. I am using KMPlayer and VLC media player if that helps. The file is 1:51:01 hours long. (1hour 51mins and 1 second )
Don't ask me why I downloaded such a large file. It's because I couldn't find the movie anywhere else and had to download the huge one.
Thank you
P.S. I don't want to download any extra software.
P.P.S. It was originally a .mkv file, but is it ok, if I renamed it into .avi, because that is the format I always write the movies onto DVDs in. Will an mkv file still work on the TV, or will I need to change it to .avi?

I'd like to email some tutorial mpegs but the files are rather large. How can I make them smaller, without losing quality and easy to open for the recipient?

A:how to email smaller mpeg

You could use WinZip or WinRar to compress the files . If they are still too big you can split the file to appropriate size chunks with WinRar ( i dont know if the same applies to WinZip) and send them individually . Once the recipient has received all trhe chunks he/she can reassemble the file with no loss of quality .

WinRar trial version (fully functional for 30 days , i think) is available here ...
