Hi,

Sounds like your hard drive is full. Try running Disk Cleanup to free up disk space.

Go to File Explorer > This PC or My Computer. Next, right-click on your hard drive and select Properties > General > Disk Cleanup and follow the instructions.

I suggest you also uninstall software you no longer use and delete some files and folders.

Hi,

Have you deleted all the temp and cookies flies from your PC? If no, then delete those files first and check if your laptop starts rebooting again. In case, if you have already tried this then you can follow the below methods as well.

1. Disconnect all peripherals (such as printers, cameras, and USB devices) to confirm none of the other devices are conflicting with the monitor.
2. If you have a Surface Pro 7 connected to a dock station, disconnect it and try to connect the monitor directly into the tablet to confirm the problem is not the dock.
3. Update the external monitor firmware to help fix bugs and compatibility issues

A corrupted boot system parameters is one of the possible reasons why you are having an additional free space is needed error when resetting your computer.

Start your pc and use the F11 to boot into recovery mode.

Next select Advanced and then Command prompt. From here run chkdsk c: /r /x and watch the magic work. If

chkdsk only scans you will need to run sfc /scannow and reboot. Problem solved! Windows cannot repair its self because the boot parameter is corrupt and no recovery will fix it for some reason but the tools you need are all already there. Don't be fooled into thinking a complete system restore is needed.
In the search box on the taskbar, type disk cleanup, then select it from the results.

Select the check box next to the type of files you want to delete. (To view a description of each type of file, select the name.) By default, Downloaded Program Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Thumbnails are selected. Be sure to clear those checkboxes if you don't want to delete those files.

To free up even more space, select Clean up system files, and then select the type of system files you want to delete. Disk Cleanup will take a few moments to calculate the amount of space that can be freed up.
