Need help with Vista/XP Pro

  1. My neighbor today told me her daughters Vista/XP Pro wouldn't boot. I had it in here before, but can't find the thread. In that thread, it started out as a Vista home premium but I ended up putting XP Pro on it.
    I went to boot it up, but nothing but a black screen after the Gateway screen. I pulled the cord out, waited 30 seconds & plugged it back in. Once the Gateway screen left, I started tapping f8 & using the up & down arrows I used Last Known Good Configuration & finally got to the login screen. Logged in & started updating the security programs. Everything was going fine till SuperAntiSpyware stopped updating. I clicked close & the screen went black again.
    I pulled the plug again,waited & plugged it back in & again had to use LKGC to get to the desktop.
    I've defragged it which took a few minutes & am in the process of running the sucurity programs right now.
    I was forced to install "everything" on I Drive on it. It didn't give me a choice.
    Avast scan came up clean.
    Any ideas? TIA

    Look at the first post which shows a hard drive capacity of 11Gb. It has to be over 10 years old to be so tiny.

    3 partitions on a 500GB drive is a waste of space and not necessary at all. 2 partitions would be max

    learninmypc TechSpot Evangelist Topic Starter Posts: 5,086   +222

    I'm not the one that did that, but I'll agree with you.
    I was wondering if there is an "easy" way to put everything on the c drive?
    There already is somethings on it, I'll post a screen shot shortly.

    I think XP, SP3 and updates beyond takes almost 30GB now. This utility might help merge the partitions without loosing data. There is always a risk that data will be lost

    Thank you but I think in all honesty, since XP its self is nearing its end, I think it best I just tell her mother its time to go to W7 & a bit more ram.
    I've never messed with partitioning a harddrive. I'll see what the owner says, thank you.

    As stupid/ridicules as it sounds, what would happen if I copy, or cut & pasted, everything from I Drive & pasted it in C Drive?

    I'm going to have their son check out this thread to see if he knows how to do this http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

    I would just copy and paste documents/downloads, pictures, and any music

    It is a program. You run it like any other... And partitioning takes a bit of practice. I have 4 500GB hard drives and a 60GB SSD, so I have had a lot of practice under Windows 7 and Windows 8. Take your time and look over this help page:

    Ok, I'm going to try to talk the owner into letting me have the pc so I can "practise" on it. If I mess it up, no loss.lol.:D

    learninmypc TechSpot Evangelist Topic Starter Posts: 5,086   +222

    Tmagic650, I know you're busy else where on here, but can you help me get started? If it requires using CD/DVD, I have none & not sure I can get any. Otherwise, can you help? TIA.

    Thanks, but since that makes absolutely no sense to me,(I don't understand any of it) I'm calling it quits.
    Perhaps I'll have them get another harddrive or whatever, but thanks any how. :)
