1. Make sure it's not a DVD that you are trying to read on a CD drive.
2. Check the disk, it might be damaged.
3. Check the drive with a different CD, it might be faulty.

Access the Internet from another computer that has a CD burner installed. If you have other user accounts on the main computer, you can attempt to log in to those accounts just to get to the Internet.

Download Ophcrack, a highly rated free password cracker for Windows. The website has been included in the References section at the end of this article. For easy access, download the file to the computer's Desktop. You will be downloading the ISO image of the program which can be burned onto a blank CD-R.
    • 3

Insert the blank CD-R CD. Select the ISO image of Ophcrack that you just downloaded, and right click on the item. Select 'Burn' from the drop down menu. If a burn program opens, click Burn Disc to burn the program to the CD-R.
    • 4

Remove the burned disc, and go back to the original computer that you are locked out of. Turn on the computer, and immediately insert the disc into the CD-ROM drive.
This will allow the computer to boot from the CD-ROM. You may be prompted in DOS to boot from the CD-ROM, select "Yes."
    • 5

Allow Ophcrack to run; it will run automatically and display the administrator and user password on the screen as it recovers them. Write down the passwords, and wait for the program to finish.
    • 6

Remove the burned disc, and restart the computer. Allow the computer to load to the sign in screen, and enter the newly recovered password. You should have full access to your Administrator account once again.

i am sorry to give u bad news, game CM is game that need disc to run the game because a lot of stuff that still need to run the program left behind in the disc. it was factory setting.

make an image file from CD 1 and CD 2 and save it in computer.
second install program that can make image drive to run image disc (i use daemon tool).
make one image drive then mount the image disc to the drive.
now u can play without real disc. (after finished play the game unmount the image disc)

hope this helpful

My acer aspire 4520 unexpected turn off


If you formatted your disc, you have erased your hard drive and its operating system.

To reinstall your operating system you will need a CD/DVD drive. You can get Windows or Linux. You can download a copy from another computer and burn it to CD. Linux is free, and an easy version to start with is Ubuntu. You can download it here: http://www.ubuntu.com/GetUbuntu/download

Download the ISO file from that link, and burn it to a CD or DVD. If Windows doesn't recognize the format of the file you downloaded, you will also have to download a program burn the disc, such as Nero. You can download Nero here http://www.nero.com/enu/support-downloads.html

With the disc ready, turn on your laptop and put the disc in. It should automatically boot from your CD, if you hard drive has been formatted. If not, restart the computer and press F2 at the very first screen to enter BIOS. It will look like a blue console. In BIOS, go to Boot Options. Use the + and - keys to make the CD/DVD drive boot first, by moving it to the top of the list. Save and exit (F10). Your computer will restart and boot from the CD. Press a key to boot from the CD and follow the instructions to install your operating system.

If your laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive, you will have to use a USB drive to install your operating system. It is a bit more complicated to do, but you can find instructions here: moz-screenshot.pnghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick

Need program to run educational software


You certainly meet the system requirements needed to run that software. I do not know much about Scott Foresman, but you are currently running at very least a 2.0 GHz machine, equivalent of 2000Mhz, more than enough speed needed to run that program.
In terms of installing the program, it seems you have the choice to either install whatever version is available on the disc, or the latest up-to-date version available online.
