A little more information would be a help...

First what computer are you installing Parallels on? How much ram?

Second what version of Parallels are you using?

What version of Windows are you using?

Mac Pro Intel 2.66 - 4 Gigs Ram - 10.6.1 - 30" Apple Monitor
iMac 24" 2 gigs ram - MacBook Pro

Quick question, have you installed Windows yet? If you just installed Parallels and hit Play, it's not going to work.

If you haven't installed it yet, run through the setup wizard to start the Windows installation.
