    Video preview problem Help ???


      I just downloaded a new copy of  Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and much like a previous question here, I am also having problems with a playback view.  In the source viewer, my images are pixulated and not formatted correctlly for viewing.   What am I doing wrong??   In the picture below I tested with a simple title and this is the outcome.   I am working with a Dell Inspiron 9200 PC 2Ghz. processor, w/2 gig ram, well over 30 GB of space.  I now its the minimum platform but I still would think this works.   Any assistance would greatlly help. Thank you.

          Seems like you are missing something. So you don't meet minimum requirements, and when Adobe says Minimum, that is absolutely minimum, completely intolerable for most. What video card/chip is installed with what memory?
