What are you trying to install? It got cut off.

Swap file is set in different locations depending on your operating system, so please provide that as well.

However, the swap file is not related to installing an application or Windows.

Another thing to check, is to see how much RAM you have. Windows Vista says you can run it with 1Gig of RAM but it really needs 3Gig to work well. You'll also need to double check your CPU, CPU speed, hard drive space free.

Please let me know those things, then I'll be better able to assist you.

Yes you can't install Win xp in this PC, Even if you want to install then you have to down grade Your laptop BIOS and can only be install WIN XP SP3. But i will not suggest you to do that because your laptop is design for WIN 7 not for WIN XP.

Win xp sp2 & sp3


WinXP can go directly to sp3 which can use IE8. Microsoft sells sp3 for $4.95 plus postage.

Driver installation


Deinstall SP3. Nothing works with it.
If you can't deinstall it, you'll have to reinstall Windows, I'm sorry.

I hope this helps,
