Problem installing programs
When i try to install large programs i keep getting scratched disc errors I know its not the cds cause the same cds work on my laptop and other computers and they aren't scratched at all.
so far i have tried replacing the CD rom with 2 different CD roms i had laying around (both of which work in the other computers they are in) and i have replaced the cables connecting the cd-rom to the motherboard.
then i decided it must be my HD so i went out and bought a new sata WD HD i plugged it in same error. tried all three cd roms nothing worked.
then i bought a new MOBO thinking my IDE for my cd-rom was bad i put it in got excited when i got past the first CD of wow and then on cd 2 same error.
basically the only thing left on my computer that is original is the CPU, PSU, and my 1 gig stick of Kingston ram and my video card (i have tried other video cards).
anyone ever heard of anything like this? what should i waste my money on next i almost have a new PC?
