Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Hey, this morning, I had received a warning saying: "You are running out of disk space on Local Disk (C:). To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files..." I had already followed its suggestions to delete all old or useless files and folders there. But, the result is not so good. The same message warning popped out again several minutes ago. What can I do to solve this low memory problem? I have no files or folders that can be deleted. Please, help me!
It sounds like you have too much running in the start menu. If you go there you have to be careful what you stop from loading. Go to your start and left click. The search box at the bottom type msconfig Go to the startup tab. Anything like Adobe reader, Java, any toolbars, quicktime, realplayer or anything that doesn't need to start when you boot the computer uncheck the box on the left beside it. When you click apply and ok it will ask you to restart the computer. After you do a box will popup and you can check the box and click and you won't see it again. But like I said you can stop the wrong things there. If you don't feel comfortable trying it get someone you know who is tech savvy to help you. Anything Microsoft, Intel, or with your computer brand name needs to stay.

SOURCE: low virtual memory
Virtual memory means you're running out of memory, so it's using your hard drive storage as memory. This is slow. This is an indication you: Have too little memory and need to run fewer programs or install more memory; and also increase the size of your virtual memory, which will also make your disk space tighter. If you are really pinching the computer that badly, you may want to consider buying a new laptop altogether -- the prices have come down a -lot- just in the 2 1/2 years since you bought that. Anyway, to work around the immediate problem:
Your Gateway came with Windows XP Home Edition. Click Start: Control Panels. See if you can find the Performance control panel, possibly by switching to "Classic view." In there, look for the memory tab. Find the virtual memory section. It may be set to "Let Windows decide." change it to at least 1000mb.
You can get a bigger hard drive (after buying an external case to move stuff over) and upgrade your memory to as much as 1.25gb; but you may find those purchases to not be sensible relative to the price of a new laptop. Memory is cheap and relatively easy; the hard drive is more difficult and will set you back at least $100 if you do it yourself.

SOURCE: Cannot delete files from D drive
Try deleting the files inside the folder first
Copy some of the files off the drive onto a DVD or two that will make working space on your hard drive

When there is low disk space error, just delete all unwanted partition files and uninstall all useless programs.
And then, use disk management to resize your computer partition spaces.
But, if you can not resize all partition space by yourself, you also can use some related partition resizing tools to help you out.
Here is a video tutorial for you to go on:
No matter what happens, always make partition data well in case of data loss problems.
