Hello,
Bought a refurbish HP computer form Fry's for a poor boy graduation form 8th grade and always wanted a computer. A message keep coming up that say's low disk space. We delete the sign but pop up every few min. I looked in the drives "D" drive is called HP Recovery. It hold 5 GB . It' 99% full. I assume that how it show be since it a new computer.
How do I get rid of the sign poping up ?Is there something I should worry about.
Thanks

D drive shouldn't be a problem. C drive is a problem. How much space do you have on that? Open My Computer and right-click on your C: drive and see what percentage you have free. Windows needs space to work in.

Once you start using the computer, make sure you defragment regularly so that the disk doesnt get so fragmented tht leads to trouble.

Look in Win XP's system restore logs and see how many restore points you have stored.

You only need the last one if your system is not contaminated and operating properly, and that may well be your space hog.
