How to install nortons


If you are trying to install Norton from a CD/DVD, insert the CD/DVD into your CD/DVD drive.

If the autoplay option shows up automatically, click on "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and it will start installing Norton. Now, during the installation, you must follow the on-screen instructions.

If the autoplay doesn't show up, open your computer, right click over the CD/DVD drive and click on "Open Autoplay". Select "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and Installation will now start.

If you want to install Norton from a downloaded copy, double-click over the downloaded package (****.exe) and follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Why cant I get the cd that came witht the monitor to play?


Autoplay may be disabled on your machine (most versions of Windows come with Autoplay disabled to stop virus's from potentially autorunning along with the CD). Open up "My Computer" and select your CD drive, once that drive is open, look for a program called "Setup.exe" or "Install.exe" and see if that brings up a window which will let you install your drivers. Other than that the CD itself may be fault?

Just a single question, I have no problems at the moment. Question: What is 'autoplay' doing or for?


The autoplay function sets a default action everytime you wish to do something with a media file.
So if you put a blank cd in then you can set your cd burning software to launch, or if you plug a memory card or portable hard drive you can set the pc to open the drive,or open your image viewer to view pictures.
If you have not set your autoplay functions, a box will usually just pop up asking what would you like to do

My dell studio 1535 will not open a cd, when I insert the cd nothing happens. I just had a new hard drive installed..


If the CD-ROM will boot from a recovery CD, then this would indicate a Windows software problem instead of a CD-ROM issue. It can usually be attributed to a corrupt driver. To reinstall the drivers:

1. Go to Start>> Right click My Computer>> Properties>> Hardware>> Device Manager.

2. Expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives line item.

3. Right click on the items below and select Uninstall drive on the resulting menu.

4. Re-boot the system and Windows will automatically detect the CD-ROM drive and re-install the drivers for you.

Try a different media - some brands will just not work correctly with a given CD-ROM drive. Watch out for compatibility problems with Maxell, Memorex and Macromedia CDs.

Check for unusual noises, maybe a ticking type noise. This could indicate a cracked disk. Or, the media may not be seated correctly on the spindle.

Is the access light on?

Is the CD Clean?

Check error messages in Event Viewer. Here's how:

Go to Start>> Settings>> Control Panel>> Administrative Tools>> Computer Management (or Event Viewer)

Check your manufacturer's web site for software updates and drive updates. Check for QSI firmware updates.

For DVD - Are you trying to write to a DVD that is READ ONLY?

If all has failed, you may be faced with performing a complete Operating System Recovery or Repair (preferred).

If nothing above has worked for you, then you may need to take the drive in to a service facility for repair or replace the drive.

Get a little cd flashing by the pointer when putting a game on.the game will not start.what does the flashing cd mean?


The drive is attempting to initiate the Autorun of the CD. Some CDs have an autoplay feature, some don't, some the autoplay doesn't work. So open my computer, see if the drive actually reads the CD. If it does, look for an autoplay or setup.exe
