Hi, When I pluged my raspberry in for the first time instead of going to the login like the video shows it goes
rite to a home page with some icons on it and no way for me to do the things the video says to do to load NOOBS from the SD card i Bought. How do I get this thing going?

That's the NOOBs configuration page. Please see this video:

Watched that video and others this does nothing like any I have seen yet.Some one I spoke with said it sounds like some one already loaded software on it.So that tells me I was sent a machine that some one had a problem with and returned it then I ended up with it.
It goes past every thing on the videos and rite to a screen with a few icons but nothing works except the internet.

There is no software other than the SD card. Everything you see is on the card not on the Pi.

I thank you very much for the quick reply's.
If that is the case then the Noobs card I bought has a problem every thing I try to open will not open or I
get an error message.
In either case it's not worth the trouble just to run christmas lights ill stick to my laptop I can work that.
Im in the process of sending it back.
Thanks again for your help.
