  1. Yeah I tried changing slots but nothing helped. Me to hate these prebuilts specially the old ones like these.
  2. Sorry for all the story and a lengthy post but I am in need of a solution for this OK so I have this pretty old system which keeps annoying me with problems one after another. Its a branded machine from HP with a 14pin motherboard whoose BIOS lets me do nothing tbh. It has an i7 2600 installed so works pretty decent with a boot SSD thats why its still in my use. Despite the fact that I have solved quite a lot of these issues this one thing is what I think is beyond my areas of expertise and after a time I literally gave up on it. So I have this PCI WLAN card from TP-LINK (pretty old one too) and It was working great till there was no Graphic Card in my PC. Then I bought a 750Ti for light gaming purposes as the on board graphics was no good except I could play a very few old games. When I installed the card I started having this problem of system hanging. Sometimes the system booted to Windows, sometimes it gets stuck on the load screen and sometimes you can use it for a while like a minute or so but then again everything gets freezed. At first I had no idea what was going on. But then I came to knew that my WLAN card was behind all this. So I disabled the slot in the BIOS where the card was installed and everything started working fine. However, the problem is I have 3 Internet in my home from 3 different ISPs, one I use for gaming that has low down speeds but has no jitter and ping issue, second one is for good down speed but you cannot game on it (the pings aren't reliable), and the third one is a decent one with good down speed and pings as well. The problem is I can only use Ethernet from the router of the first mentioned net, so am able to game on this but whenever I have to download anything its a nightmare. I have to change my pc then copy paste the stuff and it all takes a whole lot of time. Sometimes I even have to use my cell phone for this purpose and its really annoying. This problem occurred after I installed the graphic card so I have tried a lot of stuff to make both of them to work together but am unable to do so, 1. I change the slots for both the graphic card and the WLAN card to see if that is causing the issue. 2. I installed the latest drivers for both of them 3. I have even re-installed Windows a couple of times but didn't help This WLAN card, as I said is a pretty one and when I installed this on this same PC when there was no GPU I still faced the same problem. The system would freeze so I had to disable the WLAN card first install its driver and utility and then enable it back again and then it worked. But now after this GPU upgrade I am really unable to make both of 'em work together. Before this the card was working. But now I have left it's slot disabled in the BIOS in order for the GPU to work since I was literally tired of opening and closing the case and changing all the slots. Else I would have to remove the graphic card for the WLAN to work. Also, the driver of this card is so old that I had to make it backwards compatible with Windows 7 to make it work on Windows 10. IDK if that information is necessary. I have no idea what is making these two cards conflict like this. I am in require of a solution if its possible without any idea of spending money on new stuff. Any help would be highly appreciated. Regards.

  4. Oh thanks, discovered a new feature that way but unfortunately that wasn't the fix. I have solved this issue by disabling and enabling the 'Hibernation' so now my screen is also back to normal. However the Hibernate feature is now turned on so its around 2GB free now for the boot drive.
  5. The SSD's health is absolutely great and the speed is what I would expect from it. The fact is you can even get a 1tb flash drive but the soul purpose of 32GB of SSDs were to act just as a boot drive AFAIK. So there is no point why I shouldn't care.
  6. Yeah I turned it off in cmd and got 1.5GB of space free just by doing that. Oh WoW, This is one great software. It just did the job like the way I wanted to. Though I have disabled the page file on Drive C but still there was a file named pagefile.sys which was again occupying around 2 GB so I deleted that. Now the Drive Bar has turned Blue again as it has 3.5 GBs of free space. Thanks for the help. However I think I will still be switching back to Windows 7 as I have to solve this yellow screen issue and Windows 7 isn't that much of a space hog.
  7. Yeah its on the other drive and not on the Boot drive. Really? What if I follow the same procedures like changing the default directory, disabling Windows update, turning Hibernate off and disabling the Virtual Memory aka; page file. Will it still not be enough for the Windows 7 only? OK yeah, I found a folder named as 'Uninstaller Information' in the Program Files folder on the boot drive but its empty and occupies no disk space. Though am not sure if this is what you are talking about.
  8. Sorry for the late reply, I was attending a Class. Wasn't able to open Command Prompt in C:\ directory but there was a option to open open PowerShell so I used that. The command to show all the files in PowerShell is '-force' i.e, 'dir -force' and yeah I found a Hibernation file there. So I used the command you previously mentioned to disable it and the file was gone. Thank you so much for the help. It freed up 1.5 GB of Space, yeah ain't that much but still now the drive can atleast breath. Thanks again. OK, I know about this thing and I kept my settings to 'No paging file' as it only eats up space and ain't that useful but once I had a error that the System is low on memory so I turned it back on. Its already on a other drive so no worries here. I wonder if the space will still fill up soon because with one and a half GB of free space, things are back to normal except for that yellow screen issue (idk) what caused it. But the system isn't that slow on boot so I can deal with it.
  9. What if the Windows Updates is turned off? Will it still reserve space for the updates? Also I am not living in Europe or North America. I am from Central Asia and tbh SSDs are quite expensive here. I got this one for around you can say $7, and this is what I meant when I said really cheap. Not in a mood of spending any money on this pc but looking for a solution that can help me get things normal with some tweaks. Thank you.
  10. I don't have the Hibernate option in the Shut Down Windows so I guess it is already off. I am sorry, I didn't get this part. What should I do here? Yeah right, and I do keep a check on the extracted files and as soon as I see one I delete it. Also I just ran a quick check with enabling the hidden files and folders and check the properties of all the folders including the hidden ones, here are their sizes Program Data eats up 2.25 GB Windows eats up 15.7 GB Users eats up 2.28 GB Program Files (x86) eats up 1.9 GB Program Files eats up 99 MB Also about 2 gb is reserved for the paging files and that all adds up to 22GB. So I should atleast have 7 GB of free space according to this but I don't know what is going on.
  11. I don't really care its end of life tbh as I said there is nothing too important and Windows 8 doesn't suit my taste thats why it I am not going back to it. All I care is that pc is usable for lite editing, web browser and a few games I mentioned as far as my C Drive doesn't gets filled. Also, if you could guide me on how should I create a custom ISO and will that do the job for me, it would be a real help Thanks again.
  12. Nothing is installed on my boot drive except for the OS. All games are installed on the hard drive.
  13. Tried that. Also cleaned system Files as an admin. Cleaned my prefetch too and yeah %temp% and temp also.
  14. Hi, everyone. How ya'll doing? Ok so I will jump straight into it. Actually I bought a used 32GB ssd about a month ago because it was really cheap, like really very cheap (from ADATA I think). And so I thought that it should do the job if I just use it as a boot drive for Windows 10 on my other PC. So Yeah I did the installation (Build 1903) and everything went great like super fast boot times as what you would expect from a SSD paired with Windows 10 and I had about 10 Gigs free after I was done with the Installation. Just to keep things on the safe side so that the disk won't fill up, I disabled the Windows Update from services.msc (yeah nothing too important is on that pc so its fine with the updates off). Also I changed the default Installation Directory to the desired partition on my hard drive in the Registry Editor. If anybody wants to know what I did there here is what I changed, CommonW6432Dir C:\Program Files\Common Files ProgramFilesDir C:\Program Files ProgramFilesDir (x86) C:\Program Files (x86) ProgramFilesPath %ProgramFiles% ProgramW6432Dir C:\Program Files CommonFilesDir C:\Program Files\Common Files CommonFilesDir (x86) C:\Program Files (x86)\Common I changed all these directories so that no software, literally no software gets installed on my boot drive. I don't know about the Common Files Directory but I changed it too as I though that some software have their data stored in these directories. All that done and The Windows Defender stopped working so I figured out my own solution for this. I copied the files from C:\Program Files and C:\ Program Files (x86) to the directory I changed and Boom it worked like charm. Everything was going well. I even Installed some old games on that PC as it does not have that much of a powerful card. Games like GTA 5, Far Cry 4, Xenoverse 2, Battlefield 1. Also a few Software like the Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro CC and did some simple video editing for Youtube videos. Like just literally copying the Intro and Outro with the Gameplay I recorded and Exporting the file at 720p. Nothing too much. But I didn't have any idea that my C drive was filling too fast. And now after a month I am sitting at a point where it says '0 Bytes Free', it takes forever for the system to Boot, and the desktop screen turns pale yellow however the mouse pointer seems to be pure white, IDK. Also an annoying Pop-up Message that the Disk is low on space. The screen remains yellow until I have opened and closed any game once. But after that everything works fine. However I am annoyed with the face that I have to wait 10 minutes for the system to boot and become usable and run a game at the startup for the screen to turn normal. Also I tried Disk Cleanup with cleaning the System Files as an administrator, nothing is in my Recycle Bin and cleaned prefetch and all sorts of temporary files. Can anyone with the knowledge please tell me what have I done wrong or is it not recommended to use a 32GB SSD as a Boot Drive. Also if Windows 10 is too much I can even switch back to Windows 7 idc, as long as I have a usable experience. Or am I to see same sort of things after a month again even with the Windows 7 with updates off. Any help will be highly appreciated, Regards.
  15. Ahhh... Maxwell.. srry bout that
