Was there an error displayed?  Are you running WinXP?

i would suggest updating your video card drivers....If you are running windows XP, you may not have installed any video card drivers?   or did you?  The DVD Decoder part of the software may not be installed....so in installing the correct drivers may resolve that issue.

Try a different DVD player?  Try reinstalling Power DVD?
