My computer came with 80GB hard drive and 512MB RAM. I looked up the dxdiag and it doesn't say anything about GB. I just need to know how much space I have left. I have ran disk clean up, disk defragmenter, I have deleted all music files, old programs, & old pics. What is the page file? What memory does that use? Cause it's tellin me that I only have 929 MB available. I bought 4 new games that I would like to install but they require 2500MB to run them. I've only had the computer for 11 months and don't really have alot on it. So how do I find out how many GB I have left. Thanks :thumbsup:

I am assumeing you are running XP. To find out how much disc space you have. Open my computer the right click your C. drive and select properties. That will show how much space is available.
Did you clear out all of your restore points on your system restore ? That comes after you select disc clean up, their is more options on the right. Go all the way to the bottom and select, System restore clean up.
Also have you run a cheek disk ? Open my computer, right click, properties, tools, top box error checking, check now, put a tic in the top box. The next time you restart the computer it will do a CHKDSK.
After that defrag your drive.
Hope this helps.
