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.

My dell Inspiron 530s goes to power save mode screen is black can't see anything fan is on what can I do


Do you get a screen if you boot from the CD/DVD drive using the Windows installation CD/DVD disc. If not, you probably dis-lodged
a cable or plug when installing the drive.

What is the best video card that is compatible with my Dell Inspiron 530s?


You can use any PCIe X16 card you want, the only restriction being the power supply. Most of the high end gaming cards require minimum 400w supply with 600w for crossfire. The 530 comes with a 300w supply so, if you were looking for a card with out upgrading power supply you would have to stay within the 300w supply. I personally like the ATI/AMD Radeon HD cards because you gain sound and video through card but thats just me. If you are a light to moderate gamer and want HD video for tv monitor, etc. a midrange card, probably in the price range of $80.00 would ne good for you and could be done without upgrading power supply.

How do i unlock my dell keyboard?


Dell Inspiron 530s keyboard unlock
Is the keyboard usb or ps2? If its usb then try another port. If its ps2(Green) then power down the pc by holding in the power button for 8 to 10 seconds. Pull the plug and make sure no pins are bent. Plug it back in and boot back up. This should fix the problem if its ps2. Regards

DVD drive will not respond to any form of media inserted into the drive. My computer is a Dell inspiron 530s. I'm running Windows XP


did you install the driver of your motherboard?if so,you need to download and install the dvd decoder for your media from the manufacturers site. if you cannot play even cd, the problem is in your dvd drive.if your dvd drive comes with a driver then you have to install it.actually there are more solutions to your problem try follow the solution I've mention first,and if its still not working post your reply and i will give you another solution.

Installing Problems


It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32
