Perhaps you have somehow managed to create a 39G filesystem on your 75G
partition? Have you been changing partition sizes at any time?

Try booting from the rescue CD, don't mount any partitions and do:
# fsck /dev/sda1
# resize2fs /dev/sda1

That should expand the filesystem to match the partition size.
