Post a screenshot.

I think you are allowed only one extended partition,just increase the size of the one you have and then put your logical partitions inside the extended partition.

You may need to turn swap off to increase the size of the extended partition,even on the Live CD.

Good Luck

after swapoff there will be any problems in RAM.

There shouldn't be, as the swap is only used if you run out of memory.You will probably need to use gparted on the Live CD to alter partitions.

Please post a screenshot of your gparted picture.

Good Luck
