Trying to watch a movie on the computer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I don't have exact info. please bear with me. My son was trying to watch a DVD on his computer last night. (See Sons Comp Sig).
Said he was getting error messages about "check cable" and "not at correct resolution" He told me this after he got frustrated and turned off his computer. I haven't a clue whats going on without checking this out tonight.

If anyone wants to offer any ideas, please do. Also, Is there any freeware software that would let him run a movie?

640Mb 8800GTS running a Dell 24" @ 1920 x 1200 resolution. DVI cable. Windows XP w/SP2.

Thanks anyone.
