To me it sounds like your hard drive is not recognized.
One way to diagnose this is, is to open up the case and feel the hard drive to make sure it is indeed spinning.
Check to make sure the power and data cable are both firmly connected.
Check to make sure the hard drive is set for master on the jumpers.
It is possible you need to partition your hard drive before you install windows.
If there is a previous partition, delete it and repartition with ntfs fast partition.

I recently updated my system with Windows 7 and Office 2010. I tried to install my Visio 2007 but it said it has an invalid product key although it is the key in the box the software came in. I then loaded...

in the acceptance of the terms and conditions it states clearly that the os can only be installed on one computer
the TV is classed as a different unit so the key is invalidated by the that unit

Perhaps you are having difficulties with "Open Programs"

SmartClose's primary function leads the user through a wizard to close all programs except for critical Windows functions. Listed options are well explained as the program advances. Before closing anything, the application takes a quick system snapshot; storing it to reset your computer to that same state at a later time.

When i start installing office 2007, a window appears and seeks for installation folder.whichever folder is suggested, it says 'invalid location'. i can't continue installation.

There are lots of reasons this could be happening. Do you already have another installation of Microsoft Office on the machine? If so, it may be trying to reuse some of the old destination information from the registry. Are you trying to perform the installation while logged in as an Administrator? If not, you may not have rights to install to the selected folder. Look at the name of the folder and try to navigate there yourself in My Computer - can you get there? If not, the drive may not be valid or the permissions on the folder may be restricting your access. If you can get there, manually try to create a new document there. Can you? If not, permissions on the folder may be restricting your ability to write there. If this didn't help, get back to us with more info, or contact, and we'll try to be of more service.

Unable to load software VX1000 Life cam

Did you connect your webcam to your PC before you started your installation? Most of these hardwares expect you to install the software first. They will ask for the hardware later on during the installation.

Also, check you have used the correct driver for the OS.
