Trouble installing software on a Gateway DX4831.

Everytime I try and install software on my machine it tries to tell me to burn it. And it will not install it. I open up my computer and click the DVD drive and it still gives me the same message. Any ideas why this might be happening or how to fix it?

You are being asked to make a DVD, or Burn to disk, Perhaps you have to make the DVD and THEN use that to install?

Gateway DX4831 with Video Card

You can try a different card in the slot. This will rule out if the card is defective. If the same thing happens with another card then you know the board or perhaps another thing is causing the issue.

Microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000 trouble

Windows system restore will take your computer back to the settings it had before you first installed the mouse software. It should give you a list a restore points (dates) by date and by application that was installed on your computer over a period of months, possibly years (haven't tested that out yet). So everytime you install an application you have the option of undoing the install even if uninstall doesn't work. The beauty of it is that it doesn't change any of your documents, emails, personal data under your user files. I can only speak for Vista and windows7 OS. Can't rtemeber if XP has this - probably not.

2wire wireless adaptors

I have installed 2 2wire adapters with no problem. When using config software utility, don't select gateway (if using only adapter), then continue until sets up. No serial # required unless using a gateway, which is not needed to connect to wireless.
