Do you have working versions of Quicktime and Windows Media Player (if you're on a PC)? Try reinstalling the program, and make sure you're in 32-bit colour mode. IF that doesn't help, let us know.

Are you installing it to the default location? Sometimes installing to a deep folder can cause problems.

Could you tell me what versions of Quicktime and Windows you have, as well as which video card you have.

If it used to work fine, then something must have changed on your setup. Any idea what it might be?

Could you put a screenshot up of what the timeline looks like?

to me your timeline looks fine unsure

Have you read the manual, it may be a case of just scrolling a little.

that's because some effects have set lengths, like explosions...

I'm having trouble downloading your picture (any chance of uploading it as a compressed jpeg?), but out-of-position markers on the timeline is usually due to the Terminal font problem.

Check out this thread for more info:
