Hey,
I have a Dell inspiron 8600 laptop, on which I recently formatted the hard disk and re-installed both Windows XP Professional and SuSE linux 9.3.

My problem is that sometimes the windows installer (when installing either a random program, windows update or anti-virus update) will just hang and not complete the installation. After this happens, the windows installer becomes unstable and refuses to initiate properly for most installation needs.

Help guys, this has happened to me 3 times now, all on clean installs with most (if not all) of the windows updates applied.

Programs where it has failed:

Belken Bluetooth adapter software installation.
Samsung mobile phone software.
Windows Update.
Symantec internet security update.

It may also be worth noting that the drivers Dell gave me for the on-board sound card do not install, as it tells me that it cannot find the hardware.

Cheers
