Hi there i have just downloaded an avi file (movie) and i cant open it with windows media player, Winamp or power dvd. Any ideas?

All i get is the sound but no actual picture.

sounds like either you have got a duff download or you have not got the correct codecs installed, most avi files will open in media player, try google for codec packs, also try divx player

What version of wmp have you got version 10 plays avi files unless they are divx

As above you should only have to double click the file and Media player should start

or this pack with most codec you will need
