    Does you PC have the resources to run it.

    What are your system specs?

    What application are you using to view the DVD?

    Your CPU is below the minimum specifications to use a software decoder most likely.

    Some PC makers recommend a minimum CPU speed of 350 MHz, but even that may be marginal.
