GTA IV Install error

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

A couple of days ago, I bought the game Grand Theft Auto IV (PC-version).
During the installation, I received an error. To be precise; a CRC-error.
First I didn't freak out but I tried to install it using administrator, compatibility and safe mode, but it didn't work. So I tried to install it on my brother his pc. Guess what, it dÃ*d install! It also worked on a pc of a friend of mine...
So, back to my own pc, 4 more tries, but still no luck...

Went back to the shop to get another copy of the game but it kept giving me the same error over and over again. Not only it gave me an error at one file, but at multiple files.
I even uninstalled my Vista and tried 2 other Vista versions but the damn thing kept on giving me the same error.

The only thing left to do, was to change the dvd-drive but it still gave me the same error.
I also created an ISO of the dvd on another pc on which it did work, but the ISO file gave me the same error even though it worked fine on my brothers pc.

So I'm guessing it's some hardware problem.
Does any of you have any idea what's wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Celebro

Did try putting in a drive of a friend of mine and still get the same error. Also with the install from an .iso it keeps giving this same error.

The only thing left to try is putting in another HDD i think...
