How should I resolve the "Low on Disk Space" or "Out of Disk 
Space" error messages?
Windows uses disk space for operations, such as caching and 
virtual memory. The Joybook may not run reliably if the free 
space of the hard disk drops under 100MB or 200 MB. The 
following instructions will help you free up the disk space.
1. Click Start, and then click Computer.
2. Right-click the hard disk icon and then select Properties.
3. Observe how much free space is on the hard disk.
4. To free up the space of your hard disk, click Disk Cleanup 
and follow the on-screen instructions to proceed.

My system is running very slow. How can I improve the 
performance?
System resources are the amount of memory and hard disk 
space that your Joybook can use, which may degrade over time 
and affect the system performance. However, you can still 
improve the system performance by using the methods below: 
• Close all open programs not being used. Use software 
programs that are absolutely necessary. Try running virus 
scans and other tools when you are not using your Joybook. 
Closing software programs that are not necessary helps your 
system performs more efficiently.
• Prevent background software programs from loading. As 
software programs load the small icons in the notification area 
located in the lower right corner of the desktop, they will be 
running in the background and each one consumes valuable 
system resources. You can follow the steps below to prevent 
application programs from running when Windows launches:
1. Press  
R to display the Run dialog box.
2. Type "msconfig" in the Open field. The system configuration 
utility will appears.
3. Click the Startup tab, and then uncheck any task that is 
unwanted.
4. Click Apply, and then click OK. Restart your Joybook.
• Remove programs from the Startup folder. Removing 
programs from the Startup folder also helps prevent programs 
from running when Windows starts up. To do so, follow the 
steps below:
1. Right-click anywhere in the open area on the desktop and 
select New, Folder. Give the folder a name. This folder will be 
used later.
2. Right-click the Start button and then select Open. A folder 
named Programs will appear in the Start Menu window.
3. Double-click the Programs folder and then the Startup 
folder.
4. Right-click any icon in the folder and then select Properties. 
The information about the icon will appear.
5. You may decide if the program is necessary to be kept in the 
Startup folder. Select unwanted program icons, right-click on 
them and select Cut.
