Cyclic Redundancy Check Failure.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to install Skyrim, but the installation fails, saying "[file name here (sounds.bsa)] failed CRC check." I tried a different CD to install it, but to no avail. So I researched about it, and some sites said it was due to bad memory or memory sockets on the motherboard.

I'm thinking of running memtest, but one question came to mind - does memtest only test the memory, or the sockets as well? So as to be sure if the bad component is my ram or my motherboard.

If anyone can think of a cure to this CRC problem, it would really be appreciated. +rep. Thanks!



edit: I tried reinstalling, but now the error mentioned Meshes.bsa instead of sounds.bsa.

I assume you're installing it on your hard drive rather than an SSD you don't have listed

Download HDTune and check your SMART status on your drive, it sounds like that's faulty.

I don't have an SSD yet. I tried reinstalling extractors, but to no avail.

Did you download HDtune and check the health tab, I think your disk could be on it's way out.

Back in the day when i used to have cd/dvd drives, i often had that error. The soluiton was always make a image of the cd/dvd and install/mount from there, hope it helps

cyclic redundency check is bad data i believe as i get it sometimes from badly burned discs or from the odd dodgy copy over to a usb stick ect, 2 install discs doing the same though is iffy and it would be amazing if you had 2 dodgy discs in a row unless they are copies wink.gif
