Cannot install Windows!

After I insert my Windows XP bootable CD and restart my computer, it first gives the message “Press any key to boot from CD”. Then I press my enter key and then it gives a mesage “Setup is inspecting your hardware configuration”. After that nothing happens, I left it for 3 to 4 hours but still nothing happened. I tried few more CDs and they work fine on my friends computers. What should I do? This is my system information:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo
  • Intel D945GCL
  • 1 GB DDR2 RAM
  • Seagate 250 GB SATA

DIGIT ANSWERS: If the same CD works on your friend’s computer, then the CD is perfectly fine. It is either the drive you are using that is spoilt or it could also be faulty memory. Try a different CD drive first. If you use multiple RAM sticks, then try one RAM stick at a time to rule out problems with the RAM.
