Preferred Solution: need help for resizing harddisk

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,

I need some advice.

I recently replaced my old harddisk to a new harddisk. The old harddisk has windows xp home and other programs installed.

I did not format the old harddisk, I only took out the old harddisk and replaced it with a new harddisk. I then installed windows xp home to the new harddisk.

While I am installing programs on the new harddisk, I discovered that one of the programs do not allow me to activate the program license because I have previously activated the program on my old windows. I need to do a proper uninstallation to release the license, then I can activate the license of the program in the new harddisk.

My question is, can I take out my current new harddisk, replace it with the old harddisk, boot up as normal into the old harddisk windows, uninstall the program inside the old harddisk, then replace the old hardisk with my new harddisk again.

Will I be able to access the old windows on the old harddisk?
Will it mess up my current windows/programs settings?
Will my current new harddisk windows be able to work as normal after accessing the old harddisk windows?
I thought of accessing the old harddisk as a slave, but I do not know if it is possible to access the old harddisk and do a proper uninstall of the program?
Is there any better way of uninstalling the program on my old harddisk?

Thanks in advance.

A:Accessing Win XP on old harddisk to uninstall programs after installing new harddisk

you have to swap out the drive completely. at no time should you have both hdd plugged in.

repeat, do not run them as master and slave. run each hdd individually at each time only.........

How do i reset resizing, for everything?

I just bought a new display that is bigger, but i need a HDMI adapter to get 1080p, but it will take a month so i just have 720p for now, and i wanted everything to be correctly placed. I had a 1080p display and now i'm using a 720p, but now everything is wrongly placed, the sites layout are horrible, and i wanted to know how to reset it.
Oh by the way, i'm using VGA, if i use DVI will i get 1080p?

Thanks,

A:Resizing

Hello Alex,

You should get the same resolution with DVI as you would with HDMI, so do try connecting a DVI (graphic card) to DVI (monitor) cable to see what resolution you can change to.

Hope this helps,

I am having a problem to resize web pages. When I play a game on say pogo and the game comes up, I can not get it to expand. I have tried to grab the bottom corner and pull it , it does nothing. My box up in the right hand corner only has the minus and X signs. I am running XP Home. Hope someone can help. Thank you.
 

A:Resizing

Depending on the application and how it manages the window sometime you cannot expand it. But you can change the PC's Resolution to make it bigger. To do it select a blank space on the desktop and right mouse click. Then select Properties and the Settings tab.

I hope it does the trick for you, let us know.

Hello,

Re: Win98SE - Intel 465 Mhz

The harddisk in my PC is 8 GB of which only 2,56 GB is still available now.
From I similar PC (done away in the meantime) I still have a 8 GB IDE harddisk.
and want to place it in my PC.
Please mind that I have never opened a PC sofar.

a) I don't know to what electronic circuit-cable it must be connected (wondering about serial and parallel)

b) then this second harddisk must somehow be connected to and made visisable to the system (by cables I think; however what cables, new ones or
already present)

When I tried to google this subject I only found items on partitioning etc, not
about how to get and connect a second harddisk inside a PC.
Furthermore I have no idea whether there are special well-known problems
related to having a seond harddisk installed (e.g. very slow system)

Advises will be highly aprreciated.

My computer came with a 10gig hardrive with Windows Me preinstalled. I upgraded to Windows XP Home Edition and have been very impressed it was well worth the 90 I payed for the upgrade pack! I purchased 64MB of RAM to bring my memory from 64MB to 128MB and my computer hasn't crashed ONCE since I got XP! But having two operating systems on one 10 gig hardrive and lots of preinstalled programs such as office has taken its toll and I was warned the other day that my harddisk was nearly full! I deleted all my unnessesary files and managed to get back 1 gig of space but I'm still not happy and would like to get a new 20gig hardrive. It makes more sense to use my recovery disk to return my computer to the way it was when it left the factory and reinstall windows XP on the new harddrive leaving my old operating system on the old C:\ and installing all my programs into the new harddrive. I have two questions about this:

1) Will my computer become dual-boot which i DONT want to happen I want the same setup as I have know but with XP installed on the new harddrive?

2) Will I be able to call my new harddrive B:\ as I don't have a 5 1/2 floppy drive installed and would prefer to have things organised and call it that, if not what will my drive call itself as default as I already have A,C,D,Q,R drive letters already taken?

Lately when I close a chat window in Y! Messenger (a window that is either maximized or manually stretched to fit the size of my computer screen) and either open a new one or a contact IMs me, the window will go from the size I made it to a 2 inch by 2 inch (roughly) square in the top left corner of my screen.

I have tried running it in Compatibility mode for XP and Vista (in several service packs) and out. I am running it as admin. I have gone into the properties and changed the "Run" category from normal window to maximized. I have gone back and forth between those, applied the changes. I have tried CTRL+click and drag. None of this has done any good.
Yes, I have contacted Yahoo! about this but I am not about to hold my breath as they have never been any help to me in the past. I'm still waiting for them to fix issues they claim to know about and claim that they are fixing from over a year ago.

Without going into a rant about how typically Microsoft it is to abandon a great photoresizing system such as the one found in Windows XP explorer (I'm referring to the ability to resize photos for emailing in windows explorer), I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to achieve a nice small size like explorer did. (I just got a Windows 7 laptop.) I am now using Fast Image Resizer, which works well, but still necessitates opening a new program, then navigating around, etc. My main complaint is that all of the resizing programs I have tried seem to reduce a 2 mb jpeg file to 125 to 150 kb for an 800 x 600 image, the size I like to send. The old xp explorer would reduce them to more in the 25 to 40 kb range, which means you can send a boatload of pictures without bulking up the email excessively. I tried the three different quality settings (not the resolution, but the quality settings) on my ancient but reliable Pentax Optio 450. It gave me three photos of about 2 mb, 1 mb, and about 650 kb, but when I ran them through FastImageResizer they all turned out about the same (about 125 kb). Again, this was reducing them to an 800 x 600. I know there's got to be a trick or workaround to achieve this, but I can't think of one. Any input would be appreciated.

I'm planning to increase C:'s size to 200 and E:'s to 400, while erasing D:. I've already got everything backed up on E:, so the data on D: and C: doesn't matter.
What's the best way to rearrange the partitions? Do I risk corrupting E:? Or is deleting a partition and adding some empty space to an existing one an easy process?

A:Partition resizing

During the W7 install you can delete C and D and put W7 on the C that you will create.

Once W7 is installed you will have a new feature where you can adjust the partition sizes from inside W7 by using disk management inside of the administrative tools.

There is nothing that will really do a good job as it attempts to create missing information using interpolation which is like spreading out all the pixels and then filling in the gaps. Its really best if you can capture the image in a high resolution in the first place.
