Everything was fine with this PC for the last week until 2 days ago. come home from work and I get a black screen of death.

a few details. it's a PC with only a motherboard (no fancy video card or sound card - does have a wifi card though) it's an official XP service pack 3. I use a CTX flatscreen with it.

My C drive is down to a bit of a risky 2GB's but it should be ok with that. It hasn't moaned to me about limits yet.
Did a scan with a fully up to date anti malware bytes thingie and it found nothing so I don't think it's some nasty virus. Please help me! Safe mode is horrible you can't do anything - I'm surprised it let me on the internet though.

Thank you
I will be honest, the hard drive needs at least 10% of cap to operate efficiently! 2 GB of what? What % is that?
2GB free of a 74.5GB

yeah I should probably moved some stuff over to my flash hard drive ASAP ?
gave up in the end and am reinstalling windows in frustration and anger

DO not do that, you will not be able to get updates! Your Load of XP is probably not XPSP3. DO NOT DO THAT!
