Avoiding hardware conflicts when installing Oracle

I had a P4 computer and when I installed ORACLE (except 8.1.5), it always conflicted with my hardware and generated an error, then stopped the installer immediately... What should I do to make it better?

When performing a new Oracle installation, I always do several things before the installation to make sure no software problems will occur:

1) Connect as administrator
2) Physically remove all registry entries concerning Oracle
3) Remove all old Oracle directories
4) Remove/disable all services concerning Oracle

Try running setup after all these steps. Hope it helps.
