Question about Dell PC Desktops
I want to download a cd BRAIN POWER to my computer. When I install I can't launch then I uninstall and install again with no success.
Sorry to hear that you are having trouble installing BRAIN POWER. There is several things to look at. First how old is your computer. If it is more than 3 years old look at the speed of the CD-ROM. One of the copy protections that some compainies use is call over burn. What this means is that they burned data on the CD past the original 650mb. Normally you have this problem with the old 48x and lower CD-ROM drives. Granted you could have a newer compuer that has this problem it has to do with the drive that is in the system. Note the newer drives can support 700mb disks.
I myself have a drive that has the same problem on one of my gaming systems granted I have to CD-ROMs in that system so I do not have a issue, I just use the other drive. Now if you do not have another drive in your computer what you will need to do is go to another computer and copy the files off the disk. At this point you will need get the files back to the computer that you want to install the software on. You can do this normally with a USB Thumb Drive. Note if the program in question has more than one install disks you will need to copy them a well to the folder that you put the files from the first disk in because if you do not do this the install will not be able to find the files properly. Additional note you can try coping the files off on your computer but in most cases the issue with the install is that the drive can not read the disk, so you most likely you would get a disk read eror when coping the file off.
The other thing to make sure there is nothing wrong with the disk its self because this can cause problems as well.
Hope this helps, if you have any more questions on this and/or problems feel free to ask.
