Due to some bad decisions before, I had to give my computer up for about two weeks to one of my mother's friend's to reboot my computer and reinstall all of it. I just received it back last night, and it had a new graphics card and RAM card installed. Steve, the man who worked on my computer, told me that he personally installed my games to make sure everything worked so I was pleased. I get it back last night and I played one of the games to see how everything was, and I was very pleased with it. I had no problems once so ever.

This morning, I decided to reinstall my linksys so I could get on the internet from my own computer and then proceed to do what I wish to do, but I encountered a problem. I put the linksys installation CD into the drive and nothing popped up. I went to My Computer and no signs of any CD being registered popped up. I tried a couple more times, even restarted my computer, before going onto another CD and trying it. The same thing happened. I figured I would try the CD that I put in the night before which worked perfectly, and it automatically went to the Uninstall Wizard which was a surprise even to me.

I really would like some help as to what might be going on. I plan on contacting Steve again on Monday but I want to have some possible ideas in mind so Steve and I can work through this together.

Anything would be really appreciated!

P.S: Because of my computer being a couple of years old, one of the disk drives (the one under the default drive) had to be removed so please don't suggest that!
