I just installed w8 a weak ago and my Premiere Pro CS5 was working great, after some system updates the Program Monitor stopped working. I have to click on it to see the current frame, but when I hit play, nothing happens (sound works), when i press stop, the frame on which i have stopped appears.
I tried all the topics here on adobe forums to fix the problem, but nothing worked. So I installed Premiere Pro CS6 trial (deleted all the premiere files from my PC) and the problem still remains. Please, can you help me? I really dont want to spend all weekend reinstaling back to windows7.
What I tried:
Launching Premiere like admin
Trying new versions of Premiere
Setting up all the devices for it (inputs and outputs)
Reexporting videos directly to same setting the project has
Prerendering is also not playing, RAM render also nothing
Finaly I have to say After Effects (CS5 and CS6 trial) are working all good.
My notebook is:
Lenovo e430, i5 2,5GHz, 4GB RAM, Intel 4000 HD/Nvidia 630M working on updated window8 pro (64bit), disc is only 5200RPM
Tanks a lot for your time and help (and sorry for my bad english)
You want to ONLY use the nVidia, and make sure (from nVidia) that you have a driver that is certified for Win8

thanks a lot. Got the card drivers before, but found that I had switched off GPU and only accelerator was working (lenovo power manager), I'm stupid that I haven't recognized it befor setting w8 to default.
Once again thank you for your help.
I just want to share since I also experienced this issue (win 8). In any case, on my laptop I had disabled the intel adapter to get the Program Monitor to work. Just how John T Smith said, it was a matter of forcing Premiere into using the NVIDIA card. There is probably an easier way, but that is my current solution.
