Windows 7 won't install

It will get as far as "expanding files" then stop at 0%, with an error saying "Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation." I have tried it with multiple iso burns on different dvds from the download I got of it, redownloading it from the official downloader, and now have tried the dvd that came in the mail, to no avail.

Any ideas?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it turned out to be a RAM issue. One of the sticks was making it not work.
