Hi,I have a new laptop but am having big problems installing any software onto it!!I have tried using a USB drive, and copying them onto the laptop itself but still get the same message 'an I/O error occured'The full error mssage is"An I/O error occurred while installing a file. This is normally caused bad installation media or a corrupt filr."I then have the option to Abort or Retry.This error has occured with 3-4 applications including Winamp. Does anyone have any ideas?I have managed to install MS Office but thats it.Thanks for your help.
Looks like it could be a number of things, bad RAM a damaged CD-ROM a dodgy Bios, do you have Norton installed? if so turn it off and try it again.Chris
If you do have Norton Un-check Load Auto Protect at Start-Up.
Cheers - have closed Norton and checked RAM which is ok but still no joy.
You have a corruption.. Carry out an XP Repair.. or before that try this Insert the XP CD into your rom them start run and type SFC /SCANNOW (note the space between the sfc and /.. That may resolve your issue if not carry out the repair function.
Yeah, i think that's the only way. Infact im going for a complete re-installation. Luckily i'd only installed one piece of software before this problem started so its not like im gonna lose anything.Cheers.If i still have problems i'll be back!
Still no luck.....Ok - does anyone else have any ideas? I'm trying to install WinAmp, Zonealarm and an FTP programme and the same error happens.
