    DIY, I suggest you to read some introductory book or tutorial on what is all about. Search the web for those.
    You did not specify either parts of your circuit. Nothing can be done without them.

    You need to tell the tools the name of the LED footprint. If there is not one available then create one. Take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfCM0Ho8IE0 which walks through how to create a footprint.

    check your footprint pins if the same with your schematic in your library.

    did you check your library path? Led not found in PSMPATH, then check those pin 2 and pin 3 error

    ERROR(SPMHNI-196): Symbol 'LED_3MM' for device 'LED55B/TO_LED_3MM_LED55B/TO' has extra pin '2'.

    ERROR(SPMHNI-195): Symbol 'LED_3MM' for device 'LED55B/TO_LED_3MM_LED55B/TO' is missing pin '3'.

    The footprint symbol "LED_3MM" was found OK but the pins on the schematic part don't exactly match the specified footprint. It looks like your schematic symbol has pins 1 and 3 but the specified footprint has pins 1 and 2, hence the footprint has an extra pin 2, not on the schematic part, and a missing pin 3, on the schematic part but not in the footprint.

    Look at the Pin Numbers for the Schematic Part in Capture, look at the Pin Numbers for the Footprint in PCB Editor, Edit the Pin Number(s) for one of the items so that the Pin Numbers match in both symbolos - likely changing the Capture Part to have Pins 1 and 2 would be the easiest cure.
