I suggest using GParted LiveCD distribution.
Don't forget to backup first.
Then you must create some free unpartitioned space by either deleting some partitions or shrinking them, and then resize your system partition.

We need to understand everything that is on the disk, before we can help. (But GParted is definitely one of the best tools for re-sizing partitions)

Open a terminal and run "sudo fdisk -l" (that's an ell, not a one). Post the results here.
