Answers :

You are correct chances are that its your new computer are slim to none. It would help if you posted what kind of error message you are getting as there are many many different ones that would help solve the problem.

My suggestion is that you make sure to clean the disc very well, as a scratch/damaged disc may be the cause of the error.

Hope this helps some, if you continue to have problems post the error message for further help.
