I have a Toshiba 510cdt and at the present I
am told that the hard drive is full.
I have cleared out the usual
In the drive properties it shows full and the capacity is displayed as 0 bytes.
I have tried loading diagnostic tools but they will not load,because the disk is full.
It is running on Win 98 and has a Pentium 1.

I should also point out that this machine has been used frequently on the internet without any virus software.

have you tried to do a scandisk, open my computer/right click on drive C:/select properties/click the tools tab at the top/then scandisk (error checking on XP), whilst there also defragment your drive, this could help.

ps the online checker i use is click here, but they all work.

good luck
