Either I missed it or it is not installed. You need to have Quick Time installed for it's codecs. When I installed the 2330 patch after the intro logo came up it would just go away and not start. Even though I already had and always had real player installed I was 2 update versions behind. I updated it and then it ran fine. PD will not run without it and I assume that Cyberlink thinks that everyone in the world naturally already has it on their computers. Like a lot of other software companies.
The trial version is a handicapped version of PD9 with a lot of things not installed. However even though you machine is relatively new wit PD9 you must make sure you have ALL the latest codecs and drivers all the time.
Should you purchase the retail version, do not do the CD box thing, do the download thing. There will be two files to download. The main file and content pak. I wold resist to jump in and go to the latest release patch at first.
And as Adrian said, you may want to reconsider your video card. Video editing and rendering is the most stressful thing you can do on a computer My old card was 500 meg and work just OK. Not great.
I meant Quick time, I was using real player when I was writing my post

When you are asked to provide a DXDIAG you go the following link and do part "B". Your posted specs are NOT what we are looking for as they tell us nothing. The specs on the box of your computer mean nothing. The DXDIAG shows us how your computer is configured as it runs.
