Some computers take as long as a minute or more to start automatically. Please wait for this to happen.

If this has happened, shut down the computer and start over.

Sometimes with older computers and very new computers the operating systems have available updates. If you are experiencing problems not described above you might want to try a WindowsUpdate (for PCs only). This is a free service offered by Microsoft that automatically updates your computer's operating system. You can link to WindowUpdate by clicking: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ Follow the instructions on that page.
If you’re having problems with WindowsXP you should first run a WindowsUpdate (see #9 above). If that doesn't solve the problem, try adjusting the Compatibility Mode. To do this: 1) Double-click on the My Computer icon on the desktop. When its box opens, 2) Find the WTP icon next to the d: e: or f: and double-click it. When the next box opens, 3) Find the Start_PC.exe icon, put the cursor over it and right-click on it. 4) Select Properties and left-click on it. 5) Click on the Compatibility tab along the top of the box and 6) Left-click on Windows98. 7) Left-click on OK.
