Problem with installing the software

Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:52 pm

Hey, guys ! I need help !
I am Justin Schuh and im interested in programming. :geek: :geek:
Because of that I bought a Rasberry Pi 3 Model B. And I ve got a problem.
In the internet I saw many videos about installing a software on my Rasberry model, but
i just have Windows 7. :o :shock:
If I trie to install Rasbian or NOOBs it goes, but when I want to open it it doesn't.
And i also formated my micro SD card. If I try to enpackage it it won't go.
So i decided to copy these program and paste it into my sd card ( that is in the computer).
When i am sticking that micro sd card into my Rasberry and if i also stick the HDMI cable into it and also the power and network cable,
the screen rests in black.
Do anyone of you could help me with my problem ? :?: :?: :?:
And sorry for my bad english. I am german.

Here are my simple instructions.
  1. Download the latest Raspbian image from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/
  2. Download the Etcher software from https://www.balena.io/etcher/
  3. Use Etcher to write the Raspbian image to your SD card directly from the .zip download.
    • You don't need to extract the image or format the card prior to writing.
    • Just run Etcher, choose the Raspbian .zip you downloaded, pick your SD card and write.
    • If you have trouble, verify the SHA256 checksum of the download.
    • Writing an image to your card will erase everything previously on it!
Assuming your Pi has a keyboard, mouse and screen, your card is ready to go (put it into your Pi and boot it up).
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
