fullflap Posted August 14, 2019 Share Posted August 14, 2019 I know my set of FSX Gold disks are perfect, clean and OK for Windows10. They also install without any issue on other laptops Iâ€™ve tried, including half a dozen on the shelf at PC World etc! Also, a/v (Panda and Malwarebytes) was disengaged during all attempted installs. It's just my PC - Disk 1 goes in and then chatters away for at least 90+ minutes before reading enough to start installation. Same with Disk 2 and likewise the third, Acceleration disk. I've tried changing physical drive hardware, updated/reinstalled DVD drivers, also tried plug-in drives, plus increased the power supply from 600W to 750W. Sometimes, the change works at the first attempt â€¦ but then always reverts back to the same old problem. If I wait long enough (90+ mins) the chatter usually stops (Disk1, but not on inserting Disk 2 or the Acceleration disk). I can start an installation from here, but end up with the error code: 1-80004005 which I guess is an activation problem with the Acceleration install. Iâ€™ll have to see if I can resolve this (as described in thread Flight sim boots me off â€“ 04/26/2019). Is it some conflict arising between drivers loaded somewhere in my PC and the write-protect of the install disks? If so, why doesnâ€™t the same issue happen with other programs? Am I really the only one to have ever experienced this problem? Itâ€™s soooo very, very frustrating, not least getting brief glimpses of what I should be able to run. Any ideas what I can do to solve this would be really welcome please!! Bob C Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
