need help conbining C and D paritions into one C

by tyer22 / February 14, 2008 8:10 AM PST

I have a AcerPower S280 R01-C3 with a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600) OS.

It has a 3.07 gigahertz Intel Celeron Processor with a 16 kilobyte primary memory cache, 256 kilobyte secondary memory cache, and the motherboard is a Acer E661GXM with a 133 megahertz Bus Clock. The BIOS is Phoenix Technologies, LTD R01-C3 03/28/2006

75.82 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
50.19 Gigabytes Hard Drive Free Space

Here is the Hard drive info

c: (FAT32 on drive 0) 37.65 GB 12.12 GB free
d: (FAT32 on drive 0) 38.17 GB 38.07 GB free

I want to get the C and D drive into one C drive and include all of the available space in the D drive. I have looked at the Acer and Microsoft Hard Drive FAQs

Acer FAQ

Microsoft FAQ

I want to do it using the Windows XP OS
and without spending any money.

How would I do this without messing up my computer?

A question and a comment. . .

Why is it running FAT32 and not NTFS file system?

As best I remember, you must be running NTFS to change partitions. There is free 3rd party software available to repartition a hard drive, you can Google for it. But back to my first sentence.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
