Default Trouble installing SQL Server Express

Just trying to get going with VB Express and for some reason am unable to install SQL SErver Express.
Every time I try to do so, the progress bar gets to about 10% and then I get a message that installation has failed - no reason!
Any ideas as to what might be causing this problem would be much appreciated!
Best wishes
Jessica

What operating system are you trying to install this on? My recommendation would be to make sure you have read the installation prerequisits. I would also recommend you take a look at this document.
