    I built a system using a ASUS motherboard P4S533E with P4 2.4Ghz, Western Digital 80Gb, sound and LAN Onboard, Optorite CDWriter and Samsung DVD.

    I have installed a AGP ATI AIW Radeon 32 MB and a modem USR 5699B.

    The system works fine but time to time come out a warning "Low disk space" and the computer slow down and nothing works then except restart. After restart everything is normal with 80% disk space free.

    I tried to disable the low disk space warning but nothing change. The event happens when I use TV tuner recording or I Explorer but every time after one hour or more.

    I have last driver of Catalyst for my ATI which I guess is making those troubles even is not very clear. I tried a couple of registry adjustments but nothing. I still guess this is from a driver loaded because the warning is false – I have enough space on HDD partitioned in C and D with first partition around 55Gb.

    The warning does not happens when I use Ms Office or other programs like scanner and Paper port with OCR or editing images or use sound only.

    Thank you for your time.

    I would do a virus scan, just to make sure, and check all your files that you may have downloaded. My friend had a file that expanded itself to take up 30GB of space, thus making his computer think there was no hard drive space.
