I have a dell insperon that I bought a couple of years ago that I have done little but do work apps on. I decided to expand my horizons a bit and watch a movie. I had sound but no picture. After looking in the help section I found I must now have a dvd decoder. (wouldn't you figure that it should have come with this since it came with a dvd player?) So after some searching I found nividia dvd decoder 1.00, and also a codec pack called xp codec pack 2.4.1....I installed both and guess what....yep....no change. still have sound but no picture. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Try VLC Media Player. It's free and you can download it here http://www.videolan.org/

I like media player calssic. I find it better than VLC. I can't really help, I use classic for my dvd watching. But, if you are dead set on WMP11, maybe you should try k-lite codec pack. I don't think they have a DVD play back, but its worth a shot.

I second the suggestion for the k-Lite pack of codecs.

http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm I would go with version 4.3.4, skipping the others.
