Re: Upgrade

I think that I would put windows and probably most of my programs on it, would that be sensible???

Thanks for...

Re: Upgrade

These are the pics i took of my hard drive!!! I hope the quality isn't too bad as they had to be compressed, Hope you can read the writing!!! It might be worth saying that I have tried to remove a lot of the bloatware, using autoruns, spybot and ccleaner. I haven't noticed a massive difference but I...

Re: Upgrade

Thank you so much for your help so far, it is much appreciated. My laptop goes to get the keyboard replaced tomorrow so I won't do anything to it before then. After that I will continue this post. It will probably be away for a week but hopefully less.

Thanks for the help received so far.

Re: Upgrade

I am not sure of the hard drive number yet but I am afraid I don't quite understand what to do!! I definitely have two 500gb 5400rpm hdd drives. They are stored in two sections on the laptop. After all that, I think what you are telling me is that I need to take out the primary disk and swap it with...

Re: Upgrade

My TB is divided into two 500mb hard drives. All the program software is on one though. There are quite a few processes running in task manager and I think that I have accumulated a lot of bloatware. The only problem is I don't know what to do now!!!

Thanks for the help so far!

Re: Upgrade

It might be worth saying that I am using 6GB of readyboost and it is constantly being used. The built in ...
