    Hi everyone,

    I've been having this prblem for several months but recently it has been getting worse. I'm working on an Dell Optiplex gx280 windows xp professional sp2. Here is the problem, while I'm working on my computer (doesn't matter what I'm doing) I will get an error msg "low disk space" flash on my screen, then my monitor will shut off, but the power light on the computer stays on (sometimes flashing). I'd have to power it off and turn it back on and it would log in normally. This morning it happened 3 times, please help. Thank you in advance.

    Have you actually checked how much space is on the hard drive?

    Hi The_Kid,

    yes and I am 77% free, also I've defraged, and disk cleanup, in hopes that may work. Could it be hardware issues? Possibly power supply or heat sync?

    Do you have any other disks than this? Is it deffinitely the 77% free one that it is complaining about?
