=========================================================

4.1. INSTALL TROUBLESHOOTING

"I don't see an installation screen."

If this occurs, try the following:
- When you put the CD in, wait 15-20 seconds for your drive to
recognize the disc.
- If the Installation screen still does not show up, open the My
Computer on your desktop and double-click the Horror icon.
- If you do not see a Horror icon in My Computer, double-click the
My Computer icon. Double-click the CD-ROM icon and a window should
appear showing the files on the disc. Double-click Setup. If this
doesn't work, you may be having problems with your CD-ROM drive.

"I'm having problems with my CD-ROM drive."

Check the drive itself. Here are three things to try.
- Make sure the Goosebumps: Escape from Horrorland disc is inserted
in the CD-ROM drive. (Goosebumps: Escape from Horrorland won't run
unless the disc is in the drive.)
- If you have an external CD-ROM drive, make sure the power is
turned on and that it is correctly connected to your computer.
- Check for a hardware conflict.

Make sure the CD-ROM drive doesn't conflict with other hardware by
using the Hardware Conflict Troubleshooter.
To use the Hardware Conflict Troubleshooter:
1. In Windows, click the Start button, and then click Help.
2. Double-click Troubleshooting.
3. Double-click "If you have a hardware conflict" and follow the
on screen instructions.
*If, after you try these three things, Goosebumps: Escape from
Horrorland still tells you it can't find data, check to see if your
CD-ROM drive is installed properly. Refer to the manual that came with
your computer system or CD-ROM drive for help, or contact the company
that supplied the drive.

=========================================================

4.2. AUDIO TROUBLESHOOTING

"I don't hear any sound."

- Check that the volume on your speakers or sound card has not been
turned down.
- Make sure your speakers are plugged into the correct connection
on your sound card.
- Make sure the sound card is pressed securely into its slot.
- Make sure the sound card switches and settings were set correctly
when the sound card was installed. Refer to your sound card manual
for more information on your sound card settings.
- Make sure the sound card doesn't conflict with other hardware by
using the Hardware Conflict Troubleshooter. The Hardware Conflict
Troubleshooter was designed specifically to help with hardware
conflicts in Windows. To use the Troubleshooter:
1. In Windows, click the Start button, and then click Help.
2. Double-click Troubleshooting.
3. Double-click "If you have a hardware conflict" and follow the
on screen instructions.

"The sound is distorted, skips, or cuts off."

- If the sound is distorted, try adjusting the sound card volume
with a program that is often called a "mixer." To get to the mixer,
double-click the Volume Control. Sometimes there is a little speaker
located on your Taskbar that you can double-click. Or, click the Start
button, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to Multimedia
and click Volume Control. Turn down the volume using the volume slider
bar under Volume Control and then close the Volume Control window.
- If the sound occasionally skips or cuts off, it is possible that
the CD-ROM drive doesn't meeet the minimum requirements. Goosebumps:
Escape from Horrorland requires a quad-speed (4X) or higher CD-ROM
drive. If you keep using the same CD-ROM drive, you probably will
continue to hear the sound break up or skip. Or you can upgrade your
CD-ROM drive for better performance.
- Most sound cards can play only one sound at a time. Some sound-
producing programs, like a screen saver or any program that makes a
sound in the background, may take over the sound capability of your
computer and interrupt Goosebumps: Escape from Horrorland sounds. If
you suspect you have such a program, do not run it or any other sound-
producing programs at the same time as Goosebumps: Escape from
Horrorland.
