You can make your page file bigger but that will slow your computer down a ton and put a lot of wear on the hard drive. (and use more battery power)

You should get more memory.

Friend I have plenty of space left, but the hard drive is partitioned and I don't know how to begin to save to that area, I got the laptop with 80gb half is full.

someone please tell me how to begin using the remaining space of the drive.
