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

Pinnacle studio 14 importer has stopped working. It won't load up.


I have experienced this before with earlier versions of Pinnacle Studio. Sometimes a simple reboot works, other times I had to reinstall the software. Remember to backup all of your existing projects, videos, and pictures before you attempt to reinstall so that you do not lose them.

How did you uninstall itunes? If you run into an error, or your computer while your itunes was installing, it could leave things behind messing up all the other installations as well. What you need to do is first of all make sure you don't have any instances of itunes open, or trying to be opened. Then you can go ahead and run the uninstaller on itunes.

Then you will need to go into explorer (windows+e, or right click on your My Computer icon and press "explore" from the menu), navigate to C:\Program Files\ and delete the itunes folder completely. If you get an error saying something to the effect of "This file/folder is being used by another program, please stop that program and try again." go ahead and restart your computer, and try to delete the folder again when your computer comes back up.

Then try and reinstall it, making sure that you are downloading the correct version of itunes for your operating system.

If recently you have made any hardware or software changes eliminate that and then check how it works.
Do system Restore to a previous date when your computer was working fine to do that go to Start - all programs - accesories - system tools - system restore select a date when your computer was working fine follow the on screen steps.
if you have win vista then start-search type system restore and do the same thing.
If this doesnt helps try to uninstall and reinstall the software.

I cannot play dvd's with power dvd dx-display output error


Try going to the Dell webpage to see if there are any updates for the software. It should be found under the support for my system link. Reason I say Dell rather than Cyberlink website is that Dell uses a "special" version bundled in their systems. There is probably an update required or it is missing the proper codecs to run. Hope this helps.

Enternal error in media player


Try this:
  1. Download and run the WMP (Windows Media Player) update from Microsoft - click here to get it
  2. Follow the instructions, which will include a reboot.
  3. Try launching WMP.

If that doesn't work, try this:

  1. Go to your Control Panel and uninstall all media software in the list except for WMP. Some programs you're likely to find are Napster, Rhapsody, Real, RealPlayer, Quicktime etc. Get rid of them all. HOWEVER, if you're not entirely sure about a particular program, leave it alone.
  2. Also, uninstall Adobe Flash Player - Microsoft and Adobe are notorious for not playing nicely together! ;)
  3. Reboot
  • If, during the uninstall process of a particular programthe computer asks you to reboot to "complete the process," just click"No" (or "Cancel") and continue uninstalling the rest of the programs. I say this because you'll reboot in step 3, above. If, however, a particular program insists that you reboot, that's not a problem - just do it.
  • Also, because you've uninstalled programs like Quicktime or RealPlayer that various technologies rely upon, you'll be asked to reinstall them when you encounter the need for such technologies in the future (such as on the web, if you buy software, etc.). But don't worry because they all install quickly and easily.
If that doesn't work, try this:
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Click "Security Center"
  3. Click "Windows Update"
  4. Click "Check for Updates"
  5. Install the updates, following the onscreen instructions.
  6. You'll need to reboot after the installs are complete.
If this doesn't work, you're probably missing drivers or there's a registry conflict. In this case, your best solution would be to system Restore by using the Restore disk that came with your system. But beware, if you restore your system and don't check the option to keep the data, you'll lose everything on your system that you, yourself, added - such as Word files, etc. Therefore, BACK UP YOUR DATA FILES BEFORE PERFORMING A SYSTEM RESTORE.

On some Restores, you're presented with the option to restore but keep your data files. Still, BACK UP EVERYTHING first.
