Your right, I should put my specs.
I have an Intel Pentium 4 Dual-Core CPU E5200 @2.5 ghz, 6 gbs of Ram, 500 gb internal harddrive. I can't quite recall the exact sizes of my partitions before the resize, but after...
Partition 1 = 222 GB (238,738,718,720 bytes)
Partition 2 = 40.1 GB (104,650,203,136 bytes)
Partition 3 = 35.9 GB (38,633,545,728 bytes)
Partition 4 = 109 GB (118,065,668,096)
Please note that partition 2 (in bold print) is the Windows 7 Partition. All of the above are formatted with NTFS.
I used Easeus Partition Master Home Edition to do the resizing (I probably should have used GParted). What I basically did was make partitions 1-3 smaller so that 4 can be a little larger.
Also my keyboard is PS/2, while my mouse is USB. I have a USB keyboard I could plug in, but I'm not quite sure it will make as large a difference as one might think. However, I'm willing to try and get back to you later.
If there's any more info you need, feel free to ask.
