    Disclaimer:  These instructions worked for a first-time test, without any specialist IT assistance. The main instructions are clear, the answer is normally on the screen (somewhere), but some computer configurations and device drivers may not work.  Be patient and, if it isn’t working, ask the person next to you for a second opinion.
