    Recently i got a copy of Street Fighter IV for the PC< so i popped it in, and ran the installation. I usually go grab like a drink come back after 10 minutes and it should have been installed. However when i came back, i saw that the installation progress was way less than about 1/3 done.

    i was like [​IMG]

    i mean i remember installing GTA IV, when i was at my PC, it literally took less than 12 mins to install.

    anyway i thought that i had a defective disc or somat, so i pooped in F.E.A.R 2 which i've yet to play, and ran the installation. Yep, the installation was slow. So then i tried to install a game which i new it installed fast in the past (Fallout 3). Yet again the installation was realllly slow, i literally waited out 20 mins and the installation didn't complete

    [​IMG]

    so, like is there something wrong.

    things i've already done:

    1. System Restore, didn't help, still slow installs.

    2. Turned off my PC, ripped out the power cables to my DVD drive, re-inserted them, didn't work, still slow.

    [just a small note, when i ran the above installations, i noticed that the installation was literally eating up my CPU completely, yeah i know its something usual that happens, but the installation was eating up so much of my cpu (core 2 duo 2.4GHZ E6550) that the mouse was laggy, like a 2 sec response time, when ever i take out the disc its fine]

    Maybe in this frame of time you put a horribly scratched or really badly burned disc in it which ruined the lens? [​IMG]

    Well if the CPU usage is high then installation would be slow because it can't process data fast enough. Run a virus scan.
