You mean you need more disk space NOT RAM.

For starters what hard drive/s do you have in your system?
How are they partitioned?
how much unused space do they have?

Once you have answered these questions we will have a better idea in advising you.

Your specs are here:

Your Hard drive is 320GB in capacity. As stated above your RAM (memory) has nothing to do with your 'C' drive which is probably sent out from HP as MOST of your 320GB hard drive (probably a little under 300GB for your 'C' drive). Open 'Computer" and look at the numbers for your 'C' drive and post them back. You are looking for Total Capacity and Free Space (such as: 32 GB free of 295 GB) This is important to evaluating how bad the situation is and what options you have.
Your general options are first try to make room, and add additional disk capacity and shift your files around (probably a little of both are in order here).
Making room:
Get rid of junk --- empty recycle bin and then use disk clean up with all checked off OK
Delete files you no longer need
Uninstall programs you never use
Then initiate a manual disk defrag.
Adding capacity:
Purchase an additional hard drive ($40.00-$60.00) and install it (or have the shop do it for you)
Move your personal files from the 'C' drive to a new folder or set of folders on your new drive (or just move 'My Documents' folder (not the desktop icon) and make a new shortcut to it on your desktop and at it's original location on C drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
