INSTALLING PROGRAMS FROM CDs
1) Turn ON the computer.
2) Push the Eject button on the front of the CD-ROM Drive.
3) Place the CD-ROM onto the center of the tray with the shiny side down and the label up. [NOTE: Be sure an edge of the CD-ROM is not riding up on the rim of the tray at an angle! This could scratch the CD-ROM. Also, be sure to hold the CD-ROM by its edges so as not to put any fingerprints on the shiny surface. (Just one fingerprint or scratch can prevent the program from installing properly!)]
4) Push the Eject button on the front of the CD-ROM Drive again -or- push GENTLY on the front of the tray so that the tray goes back into the Drive. (The first method is preferable, because it results in less wear-and-tear on the Drive.)
THE 3 WAYS TO INSTALL PROGRAMS FROM CD-ROM DISKS
I. The Easiest Method–
1) Wait a few moments after inserting the CD-ROM. If the CD-ROM contains an "Autorun" program, the Installation Screen should automatically pop up on the screen.
2) Click on the appropriate button to install the program. Follow the instructions on the screen
II. The Semi-Automatic Method–
1) Click on Start, then on Settings, then on Control Panel.
2) Double-click on Add/Remove Programs.
3) Click on Install.
4) Click on Next.
5) Click on Finish.
III. The Manual Method–
As an alternative to Method II above, or if Method II doesn’t work, you can:
1) Click on Start, then on Run.
2) Click on the Browse button.
3) Click on the Downward-pointing Arrow next to the "Look In:" box.
4) Click on the "D:" drive. (Your CD-ROM drive may have a different letter.)
5) Click on the "Setup.exe" icon (or "Setup32.exe" icon) or "Install.exe" (or "Install32.exe" icon) and then click on the Open button. (If both "Setup.exe" and "Install.exe" are there, click on the "Setup.exe" icon.) If there are no such icons, double-click on any folder(s) you see there instead and try to find the "Setup.exe" or "Install.exe" icon in that folder.
6) If you still cannot find a "Setup.exe" or "Install.exe" icon, you can try typing "D:\setup.exe" or "D:\install.exe" (without the quote marks) back at the "Run" window, then press the Enter key.
7) If none of the above works, you may have a data CD-ROM, audio CD-ROM, or a damaged CD-ROM.
