What's up guy's and ladies?

I'm new here so be gentle. Here is my problem for the past two weeks I've been working in Maya and all of the sudden I get this message.

"Fatal Error attempting to save in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\temp\"

This error is really driving me crazy, it's hendering my productivity. I have been trying to figure out what's wrong with this software for the past couple of weeks and I can't figure it out. A few people suggested that I should download an updated video driver, which I did and I'm still getting the error. Can anybody help out a fellow Maya addict, please?

Oh by the way, Hello!

Hmm, that could be any number of things. I did a clean Maya install and it usually works ok. Pain in the butt, that's for sure. At least it saves your file to a temp folder, though.

That happened to me a lot on my old computer. the problem for me is it was hopelessly overusing my RAM.
Usually right before this happened I would get an error message that I was low on virtual memory.
if your situation is the same, gettin more ram should do the trick

hope that helped.
