what graphics card have you got?

  Office 22:42 04 Feb 2003

it is a pc chips mother board with on board graphic card

the onboard graphics card may not be fast enough to run the movies.

wait to see if anybody else has any other ideas

You have not given much info here!!! what make is your pc?
How old is it did it have DVD drive when new?
I asked this because my first computer was a HP Brio 400 i replaced the CD Rom with a DVD Drive i increased the Ram from 64 to 128 and it worked fine on windows 98 and Power DVD Software.
