it would help if you would let us know some more details:
What type of hardware do you use (graphics-card, CPU)?
Which operation system do you use?
Which version of Pymol do you use?
What files did you want to display (non-standard PDB-files sometimes
produce errors or are displayed invisible)?
Are there any error messages in the console-window upon loading?
Pymol normaly loads and displays PDB-files with a standard-layout and
centers them on the screen (unlike some other/older programs like O,
where it is considered a feature NOT to center the display (i.e. you see
nothing after loading)).
