Halo Setup Fails on CAB files

I recently repaired my pc and when I went to reinstall Halo game again then it always fails on one of the cab files. It will mostly fail on Cab2.CAB and sometimes it passes it without any issues and then failing on Cab3.CAB or Cab4.CAB and so on. I am getting the below error message when doing a setup:

Setup failed to extract files from
D:\FilesCab\Cab2.CAB. This is most likely caused by low memory (low disk space for swapping file) or a corrupted cabinet file. Please restart your machine and run setup again.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this error? Thanks

Re: Halo Setup Fails on CAB files

Have you checked whether you are able to install any other large games on your computer?

Well, if it is a problem with the CD media then check if you can install the same game on another computer, it will let you know whether it is a CD problem or the drive problem.

Re: Halo Setup Fails on CAB files

It seems to me like you have some issues with your CD/DVD drive. Did you try to clean it or swap it out with a known good drive yet to troubleshoot the same issue?
