This error is related to tempdb, SQL Server is not able to allocate space to tempdb.
Do you know where your tempdb resides, if yes check the drive and free up some space.

else if you don't know this then:
At command prompt in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Binn run
sqlservr.exe -c -m -T3608

then open another command prompt run
sqlcmd -A

ALTER DATABASE tempdb
MODIFY FILE (NAME = tempdev, FILENAME = '{new location}\tempdb.mdf');

ALTER DATABASE tempdb
MODIFY FILE (NAME = templog, FILENAME = '{new location}\templog.ldf');

Now stop the cmd shell by ctrl + c
then shutdown the server and start it again in normal way.

If it work then just say thanks. Will wait for your response.

Thanks,
GG;-)

Thanks

tempdb.mdf and templog.ldf files is located on my C drive as below.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.SQLEXPRESS2008\MSSQL\DATA

I have 10gig free space on C drive and I have 3 gig RAM on my computer.

So I don't understand, why is the problem creating tempdb.mdf

I would appreciate your help.

Many thanks
