I've installed it before and it was fine but I uninstalled it. Now when I try installing it again, it doesn't autorun when I insert the CD. Nothing happens when I insert the CD. When I double click on the drive the CD is in, it says "F:\ is not a valid Win32 application." I've tried installing other games and they work fine. It's only Oblivion that's giving me a problem. Any suggestions?

First thing, Make sure your rig has the guts to run it. Second. I'm not sure because I've never purchased the game but, Maybe it is on a DVD and your D drive isn't DVD compatable?

I'm sure my computer can handle it -- just got it less than a month ago with 2 geforce 7600's running in SLI mode. And both my drives are DVD drives so that shouldn't be the problem. I don't know what it could be... maybe there's a problem with the CD or DVD or whatever it is.

Nevermind, I got it to work now. The problem was a faulty video card -- one of them kept overheating. Switched it out and now the game runs fine.
