Maybe you burned a bad CD or the ISO you downloaded has a problem. You might try re-downloading and burning a new ISO.

If that doesn’t work, we’ll need more information. What processor, how much RAM, type of video card, sound card, etc. It may be a problem with a particular piece of hardware on your system. Usually there is a workaround.

it is a emachines t1842. heres something i copy and pasted about it.

You only have 128 MB of RAM… this could be the problem. I would add more RAM and try again (just my 2 cents).
