Hi,

a) we can't read your mind or the mind of your computer and you should
   at least tell us *what* are the error messages from the kernel
b) look into the Statistics`DiscreteDistributions` package, if you load
   the package, it should modify Random[] so that 
Random[BinomialDistribution[n,p]]
   is working.

Regards
  Jens
