    I was trying to install Windows XP on my laptop (Aci ethos V) but then an error popped up saying "Cannot copy driver.cab". I chose the option to skip this file n XP was installed successfully except 4 the fact that it had probs with graphics, sound, USB and PCI communication Device.What shoud I do now???

    off to "never ever" land
    was it the cd u got with the laptop ?\
    or do u have a pirated version of winxp
    im pretty sure its the latter so try copying it no ur hdd and see if its copying all the files
    if not then u need a new cd
    if it can try makin another cd and installin xp
    before this try a simpler one .. if u can copy driver.cab from ur cd ...
    copy it into ur c:\i386 folder and see if that works

    hmmm...

    or maybe ur CDROM lens is dirty..try cleanin it and copy it manually to ur HDD first (as theraven has mentioned)

    Anyway..u say the it installed fine but crapy displya right so

    Install ur motherboard n display drivers which u may have got seperately on a CD and see if it works for the time being

    BTW..i think its time to Buy a new WINXP CD.... :wink:
