Look at tempdb. See which disk it is on and if it is set to automatically grow and how big it is.

If it is huge then change your query so that it doesn't need large temp tables.

If it is not big and you have room on the disk then set to automatically grow up to a limit (important).

If it is not big and there is no room on the disk then either delete some things to make space or expand on to another disk.

Your transaction logs may be taking up space - if so set a scheduled task to back them up or set them to truncate on checkpoint.
