Re: Y550P with PM55 Chipset and iTunes 9

Hi All,

 

So far i have received info sent by twiztid and ooter37. More info would be much more appreciated.

 

This is the common things that i could see now:

 

Model: Y550P 324156U

OS: Windows 7 64bit Home Premium

 

  • Another quick questions, does anyone experience the same in other latpop/desktop or it only happens to Y550p?
  • Could it be iTunes issue since the iTunes hung when clicking done at Setup screen?
  • What does it have to do with Y550p bios?
  • Did you report it to Apple too?
  • What is the error code when the sync failed?
  • Does it work well in win xp?

I googled with keywords "iTunes 9.0 sync issue" and i saw several results.. However, i do not read all of them.


I would like to iron out the possiblities before passing it to the busy engineers. Hope you understand :)

 

Thanks.

 

Best regards,

Cleo

I think your best bet would be to consult the issue with other manufacturers. Every major laptop I know of had the same issue with Windows 7 x64, and all of them fixed it by pushing out a bios fix.

 

To answer each point...

I only have a y550p, and it has happened with it. It did not happen in Mac OS X with my MacBook Pro.

My iTunes installed fine. It did not hang on the setup screen.

Other manufacturers have fixed it by updating the bios.

I did not report it to Apple, though it has been reported to Apple, as the manner by which the problem is generally fixed is through the laptop manufacturer.

There is a wide spectrum of errors that occur. It seems to me that any sync error iTunes is capable of reporting is displayed randomly. The problem is intermittent, but frequent.

I have not tried it with XP. I have only heard of the problem with Windows 7.

Just like the post before this the issue is with ALL P(M)55 chipsets, Windows 7 64bit, and iTunes9 (any version) the problem lies with the Intel driver for the USB ports so therefore Apple refuses to release fixed drivers for their devices and Intel claims this is not exactly their fault so therefore it is up to the Manufacter of the motherboard to post a BIOS update with a fix. I cannot tell you what they patch in the BIOS exactly however this has been done since September when Core i7 came out with its P(M)55 chipset. The M in PM55 is mobile but this bug affects both mobile and desktop chipsets so P55 and PM55. The Y550P is obviously PM55 and is shipped with Windows 7 64 bit issue (due to the 4GB ram) so this issue is inherint to every Y550P owner out there. Hopefully, this will help some if you need anymore information I will be glad to research it.

 

Just FYI this is on Apple's forums and every laptop manufacter's website which released a P(M)55 chipset device.
