    Click on "start preview"? Where is that?
    There are SO many different things you might be doing here we really need to see a screenshot for a clue.

    see the icon (just above the AVi to the right) with the play button and arrow, press that when you then click on a fie a preview will appear or in preferences you can set it so that a double click on the Media opens it up in the trimmer for you.

    Very useful posting that screenshot. You've no preview window open - no wonder you can't see anything.
    (Alt+4 might bring it back)
    Come to that, you've got hardly any windows visible, no tabs, no nothing! Just the timeline and the Project Media Window.
    I suggest you start again and do a factory reset as recently detailed by Grazie (hold down Ctrl+Shift when opening Vegas) which will reset you to a default layout.
    Alternatively go under the view menu and look at all the things you've not got checked - especially Video Preview.

    Hi Tim, I did all that you asked, the preview window was back but when I selected a video preview goes off the screen, here the screenshot with the preview window and a screenshot of what I have my view tab

    This is what I have when I select a video when I high light the file and press start preview I can hear the sound but no picture as I say the preview window goes when I select a video

    1/- Can you play this video file outside of Vegas?

    2/- What is it and where did you get this AVI file?

    3/- Download G-Spot and analyse the file and post your results here.

    4/- Have you got ANY video files of anything that works in Preview?

    5/- Do you have a dual monitor setup? If so on which monitor are you viewing the Preview?

    This doesn't appear as straightforward as you initially presented.

    Interesting . .

    Grazie

    Have you yet tried to drag it onto the Timeline? What happens then?
