This is the computers way of complaining about the amount of space on your hard drive It might be time to consider doing some cleanup and getting rid of some of the programs you dont use or consider an upgrade to a bigger hard drive The computer will still work with the amount of memory avaialable but you may only be able to run one or two programs at the same time After you do some clean up on your hard drive, you will also want to defrag the computer to get the hard drive in a proper and more efficient order
