May be you are trying to install the application from the cd.

Check the cd, cd might be sratched or something.

Run the drive lens cleaner & then try.

Copy the application from the cd to the desktop & then install.

If it still giving the error message. then you have to get the application from other source.

I you have mentioned the name of the application i could have given the link to download.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Aspire 5475 freezes on startup

It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

My computer keeps showing blue screens, and my software is corrupted. How can I restore my files without the WINDOWS XP CD?

The Windows XP installation CD includes an option to repair an existing Windows XP installation. Using this option allows you to reinstall Windows without losing the files, personal data and programs you already have on the system. To take advantage of it, just place the CD into your CD or DVD drive on your PC and reboot the computer. During the installation you will be prompted if you wish to use the recovery console to repair a Windows installation. The recovery console is rather limited in its use, so just press the Enter key to proceed with the installation as you would normally.

blank.gif Press F8 to continue past the Licensing Agreement.

blank.gif The next screen should display a prompt asking you if you wish to repair an existing installation. Select your Windows installation (most likely it is the only one) and press R.

blank.gif This will begin the repair and reinstallation of Windows. The installation will copy files to the hard drive, reboot the system, and then proceed just like a normal installation. Follow the prompts just as you normally would any normal Windows installation.
When the installation completes, you should still be able to access all of your documents and installed programs.

    I want to reboot and put a new version of windows

    The first step you'll need to take is to backup all of your data to a second hard drive or thumb drive. After that it is normally best to get the drivers for the new software for your current machine prior to installing a new OS. Video, chipset, and network drivers will be your main priority. After you have done all this you will need to reboot your machine with the new install disk in the CD tray. From there you will need to hit F12 repeatedly, this should pop up a boot menu which will allow you to choose to boot from your Install disk. After you choose to boot from the CD you will need to hit any key on the keyboard once the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD:" pops up. This will take you to the windows installer and allow you to continue with the installation. Once the disk loads all of the utilities needed you will need to reformat the hard drive by deleting the current partitions. Once this is done simply choose the hard drive to install the OS on and follow the prompts.

    I haveMicrosoft Windows XP Professional on my computer and in the last few day then i put my computer on its say windows installer can find why is thay

    I am assuming your mean it cannot find the installation of windows...

    it sounds like the boot record has become corrupted.

    With the install disk in the cd rom, load your pc and choose to Boot from CD - you may need to go into the BIOS to change the CD to be your first boot device (you get to the BIOS by pressing F10 on start up)

    When Windows goes through its blue loading screen follow the screen prompts until you can see the option to "Press R to repair a windows installation".

    Press R

    When the DOS prompt appears on the screen choose the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1 and press ENTER)

    When prompted for the administrator password either enter the password you have specified or if you have never set a password press ENTER


    Choose Yes
    Press Enter

    Reboot yuour PC.

    Hope this helps...

    If not please provide the exact error message in a post
