Obviously, you can't - not directly. The 760EL notebook is compatible with the QM32 docking station Lasershow, and there you'll have a CD drive.

Trouble is, both the TP 760EL and the docking station are no longer sold. Maybe you can find something on eBay.

Otherwise, you can try mounting a remote CD through the network using DaemonTools. Not all software will work this way, though.

How to Set Up the OS on a Laptop Without a CD ROM Drive?


There are a couple of methods. You can download the new OS to the current laptop and do an upgrade install using the downloaded file. Otherwise, some can be installed from bootable USB media (requires special setup of the USB stick), or you can use a CD/DVD with an external drive attached via a USB port.

Change the OS without CD drive


You could use Win2USB software (but there is plenty of other programs) to copy all System installation files onto a USb drive and start your laptop from USb instead of CD. You will then be able to wipe your HDD and free some more memory

How could i install samsung on my computer without using cd installer


If your computer does not have a CD drive then -
There are two methods.
1. Purchase or borrow an USB external CD/DVD drive connect it to the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this drive.
2. Use a different computer and copy the contents of the CD to an USB memory stick and then plug it into the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this USB memory stick.
OR
If you have lost the installation CD then I suggest you go to the Samsung WEB site and download the installer file for your model cell phone.
