Premiere Elements 11 on Windows 8.1 64 bit.
Is the problem restricted to
one video file or video file source
What is the brand/model/settings for the camera that recorded your video for this problem project?
Please confirm if "it worked before but not now" or "it never worked before" with this particular video source?
In that regard, can you open a new project with jpg photos and not have these problems?
We will be watching for your follow up so that we can suggest a troubleshooting strategy specific to your details.
When I look up drivers there is no graphics driver listed. I have display, audio, and video but not specifically graphics. I have an HP. With Windows 8 OS.I feel like I am as computer illiterate as you can get. I appreciate any help though.
Have you looked for your video card/graphics card information in the Device Manager/Display Adapters of your Window 8 64 bit? Or are you looking somewhere else?
That should apply to Windows 8 as well as 8.1 64 bit.
Expand the Display Adapter category to reveal the name of your computer's video card/graphic card. Please tell us the name. But, I am guessing, if you have a HP computer, that the odds are good for your computer using 2 instead of 1 video card/graphics card. If 2, what are their names.The 2 card situation is probably the problem.
