I assume you are running Debian???

Can you try CTRL+ALT+F1

This should give you a full screen command entry.
Enter your user name and press the enter key.
Then enter your password - no characters will appear to be entered and press enter.

You should then be logged on and you can enter commands such as
Code:
df -h
This shows disk usage on a per file system basis.
If you see any high percentage disk usage then it would be worth pasting the details on this forum.

Code:
du -sh /var/tmp
will give the answer in human units.
The k parameter causes the answer to be given in 1K blocks - which is not really helpful.

My PC gives values of 11MB & 15MB respectively.

If /var/log is very large, do you have processes writing lots of log data to syslog (or other log files)?
