Hi all
just purchased a new inspiron 9400 laptop used as a seconnd pc for general surfing ect.
however I am unable to install Tiger Woods 06, The comp starts to install until disk 2 is reqd, when disk 2 is inserted the install just hangs.
I have tried to install other multi-disk games and the same thing happens IE second disk causes hang.
Any ideas ?
X P media cent
1 Gig ram
Intel centrino duo 1.66ghz

Did you disable your AV program before attempting to install?

Had same problem years ago on a desktop. It had "onboard" or integrated graphics. Savage graphics or other. Would load an F1 game up to a point and then just hang. Graphics not up to the job.

Try this way, Copy the discs to Desktop, Then start in Safe Mode buy keep taping F8 as it starts choose Safe Mode at top of List, then Run Setup from the Copy on the Desktop

Just to let you all know I have just solved this by turning of the DLA setting on the DVD drive.
Thanks all.
