No picture when playing DVD

I have a Dell Latittude C600 with a 600mhz processor and 128mb of RAM, which will only play sound and no picture whilst DVD is running, can anyone help please?

I am afraid your computer as it stands cannot handle the vast amount of data which is changing all the time, so it settles for what it can manage - sound only!

So any suggestions as to what needs doing to make it play please?

Having just looked at the specs it is not so "old", but is desperately short of RAM for a start. Which version of windows are you using?

Using Windows XP Home

as Diemmess has said you are running very thin 128meg ram onboard graphic chipset and xp pro all vying for what little memory you have i think you are going to really struggle i dont know what the upgradability is for laptop but it seriously needs some more ram to even have a hope

It can take up to 500 meg of RAM. Looks like that may be the way forward then.

That's more like it for XP! ....I'll cross my fingers for you!

OK - thanks all of you for your help.

Uprated the RAM to 192 meg, still doesn't show a picture, do I need more, or could it be another problem?
