WMP won't work on my Vista laptop

Practically since I bought my laptop, the WMP stopped working. I can't uninstall it, and attempting to reinstall it won't work because I get a message that tells me that it's already installed. How can I get it to work?
I would really appreciate some help. - JRN

It has been three years that i bought my laptop and i as well got the vista installed with it.after some due time i don't know wat happened suddenly the ms office stopped working.till now its not working...


Do an in-place reinstall, simply run the installer again and it will repair the existing installation. Sometimes if you go to add/remove programs and try uninstall from there you get a repair option, so try that first.

My WMP 11 on Vista will not recognise my philips


Could be driver problem. You can try reinstalling the driver for the device. If it's a vista system, you might want to run the executable file in administrator mode, or even change the compatibility to XP.

Uninstall the current installation of the device software.
  • Insert CD in CD-ROM
  • Right click on the setup file
  • Choose properties / Compatibility Tab
  • Set it to XP
  • and tick the box at the bottom run as administrator.
I hope that help.

Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks
