I recenly bought a new pc with a dvd player.I installed the software that came with the dvd, windvd but when I put in a dvd and press play the screen is black and all I can hear is the audio. It plays 1 frame of movie at the start and then freezes.
Could it be the dvd or the software.

If the video freezes it could be a driver for the video card you have. Since it does play one frame and stops you may also want to look at the configuration of the drive itself. WinDVD has a utility normally comes with a test utility for diagnostics.
