IdeaPad Y550P Software Problems

Lenovo IdeaPad Y550P


The following programs stopped working for no apparent reason...

Mediashow (you do not have the compatible VGA hardware or driver to run mediashow), Dolby Control Centre (shows active icon on task bar but cannot open program/window), Lenovo Slidenav (this action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose “switch to” to activate the busy program and correct the problem). This does not work either, Windows Media Player... movie played from HDD gives sound but no picture. Movies played from DVD drive gives following error...

 (Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings.)


Lastly I have tried every method I can think of to install Java with no success.


Can someone please help

Re: IdeaPad Y550P Software Problems

have you tried to perform clean windows installation by pressing one key recover?

( for one key recover, check your manual or ssearch the forum previous threads )


or just try to re-install applications, graphic & sound card drivers.
