i am getting only the audio no video why????


That's because of the Graphics. May be you don't have Graphic Drivers installed on your system or you have low end PC.
You can fix it. Just read PCSX2 Best Settings for Good Quality and Higher FPS and change all the settings as it is shown.
If you face any other problem then feel free to comment.
