Check the disk for dirty marks etc....clean it with a damp cotton cloth and then dry it with a soft cotton cloth. It is not caused by a dirty mark (some marks need only be small, even a finger print) then is it possible that the disk is scratched.

A solution to that is to install Windows Vista Ultimate on top of your old vista installation. Just insert your Vista DVD and restart your computer. And simply follow the instructions for the installation.

If you place your Win7 disk in the DVD drive boot the laptop from the disk and choose to install a new system.
Follow the menu and prompts.
When it has installed download the drivers from Acer.com otherwise you will get problems.
Hope that helps.

Hi there,

We wish you a very Happy New Year.

Which is your operating system?
Below mentioned steps are for Vista,assuming your operating system is Vista.
Post back if it is not Vista.

Run it from the Command Prompt of Recovery Options if you have, or a Vista boot disk. You can
borrow a friends if needed as they are not copy protected or make a repair disk.

And/or Run the other diagnostic tools I listed.

You probably do have hard drive issues its only can they be repaired or not.

If you need to make repair disks - these help repair Windows not re-install.

Problem installing Caesar 3 on Windows Vista


Hi!,
I'm using a vista premium SP 1.. So I did got the above errors.
What i did was, explore the disc-->right click setup.exe and click properties--> compatibility tab--> select run for win xp 2 and under admin.

Then when I installed I choosed a MINIMAL install option. If you the the above step yet choose full the error comes up.
Should work :))

Its annoying to insert disc everytime when you wanna play because of the minimal installation option but i figured to 'burn' and .iso image to my hard disk and use a cd/dvd image mounting tool. This part is purely optional tho:P

Dell Inspiron 531 gets me crazy..


hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

hope it helps.
