Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I did a clean installation on windows vista,half way through it stopped and said error on disk,now i have nothing.i have inserted the disc many times and it says error on disc every time.


Answers :

Check the disk for dirty marks etc....clean it with a damp cotton cloth and then dry it with a soft cotton cloth. It is not caused by a dirty mark (some marks need only be small, even a finger print) then is it possible that the disk is scratched.
