Total hard drive capacity in your system has decreased.

Receiving this error message on a Dell Desktop after login. I click Ok, and then the computer never finishes booting up. It is like it is hung. I would appreciate some input before I start hacking around on the drive.

Do you happen to have Dell Open manage software installed on this machine?  If so, I have seen this problem before and you will need to uninstall the open manage software.  It is listed as OMCI in add/remove programs.

What happens if you boot into safe mode? Can you give some system specs(ie. O.S., size of memory and hard drive).

Harddrive has bad sectors and Dell has marked them as bad and has decreased your HDD size.
Backup and replace it immediately, it is only going to get worse.
