Q: Can I play GTA 5 on Ideapad 300

Hello friends,I am using Lenovo Ideapdad 300 80Q700DYIN Loaded with following specs:Model: Ideapad 300 80Q700DYINRAM: 8GBHDD: 1TBProcessor: Intel core i5-6200u 2.3Ghz 2.8GhzOS: Windows 10 64-bitScreen size : 15.6" FHD(1920X1080)Graphics card: AMD Radeon R5 M330 Graphics memory: 2GBI am using this PC for the past 1 Year. This is the first time I am playing GTA 5 in this PC. Even though I am playing this game with minimum settings, the memory usage shows that 1173/2048MB. I have also reduced the game resolution from 1920X1080 to 1600X900. and I have set all settings to normal. Today I have checked the GPU temperture using gputemp. It shows the temperature as 54 degrees. Is this temperature advisable for my PC? or should I reduce any settings or screen resolution. Is it safer to play GTA5 on this settings?I am sorry if this is not the place to post this topic. Please help me with some suggestions. Thanks :-)

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hello!My Ideaapad 510-15IKB has 4 media keys on the upper right corner of the keyboard. They are non-functional and I can only assume I am missing a driver for them. All of the other keyboard function buttons work (Fn + F keys). Can you point me to a driver for them? Many thanks!

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.

Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

Hey there.

So I'm having a problem playing .wmv files on my system (it's not just WMP). Everytime I play a file with a .wmv extension, the file will play, with proper audio and everything, but the colour will be messed up, almost as if the player (could be WMP, Realplayer, Quicktime etc...) is playing in negative mode. I can't fix it even with codecs. I've downloaded numerous codec packs, codecs from Microsoft, third parties, everywhere, and I can't seem to fix it. This only happens with wmv files, mpg, avi, mpeg etc...all play perfectly.

Running XP Pro

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I got my sis an advent 7211 laptop for Christmas and I have been setting it up for her ...it has a x200 ati integrated gpu but that's all she'll need as she mostly does work and multimedia stuff on it.

It's running Vista home premium and has only the original codec and ffdshow installed on it.

Anyway the problem is it will play files in WMP11 fine but when I try to play them in windows media center I get black dots all over any white parts of the video.

Anyone got a clue thanks?

I know she could just play the files in wmp11 but she loves the media center and would just like to solve it.

For some odd reason the Play All (Play Selection) doesn't work in the Music Tasks in My Music anymore. The other two (Shop and Copy to CD) work fine though. I can't recall installing anything that would have caused this.

When I click it it seems to do something since the hourglass shows up but it never plays the music. I use Winamp as my default player but I also have Windows Media Player 10. I even reset all my audio and video associations with this "%Systemroot%\INF\unregmp2.exe /SetWMPAsDefault"

I use Windows XP SP2 and I have a Sound Blaster Live with the latest drivers. Winamp is set as my default media player. If you need any more info, just ask.

I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Buddies, i really need help to solve this problem.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

So this one is pretty weird for me. I've never had any issues like this before, but I think it has to do with having all my drivers up to date. I was having this problem for a long time where I couldn't run games for too long because eventually the whole screen would get all glitchy and the last second of sound would repeat itself over and over until the monitor went into power saving mode. I tried reinstalling drivers, installing different graphic drivers like NGO and Omega which I had before.. Nothing worked!

Well, just recently my friend showed me this program driver cleaner pro and he said it helped him with his driver issues. So I followed the directions, uninstalled my drivers, cleared everything with the program in safe mode, restarted and reinstalled the drivers. Voila, all my games work with no issues at all, except for Counter-Strike 1.6.
Then I tried to watch a movie; It plays fine, I can hear the sound fine, but the video doesn't play. Even when I tried to record a video with fraps of one of my emulators (which has worked before), it didn't show video on playback.

So I restarted my computer.. now all my games don't work except Diablo 2, Starcraft, and CS 1.6. However, now I can watch movies with no problem at all! These past couple of weeks I've been having to go through the whole process of using driver cleaner pro, and installing Omega drivers again everytime my computer needed to reboot.

I am trying to play system sound through Skype calls so that the other end can hear. I have tried using a Virtual Audio Cable for this but the quality is really bad, just sounds like I'm blasting a speaker into the mic. I've looked through online tutorials and most of them have a simple solution; Stereo Mix. I've enabled Stereo Mix, made it default device, enabled it through my mic in Skype audio settings. The only problem is, when I play a Youtube video, the sound doesn't go through. This is my sound control panel when playing music:

As you can see the visualizer on the right side is completely silent, and it's not going through at all. I've tried numerous combinations (mic is default communication device, mic is disabled, stereo mix is default device, etc) and they all don't work. I've searched elsewhere for solutions and they are all faulty. I feel like I'm missing something huge here. Hope one of you can help me. Thanks

I recently got some help running this game already, but I had two other things that I would like to know.

First is playing without the CD. I know this is legal when you own the game, so I'd like to know what I would use to make this game able to boot without the CD. I searched for the topic because I know there are a lot about this idea already, but the terms used are contained in many posts so I oculdn't locate one, plus if someone knew in particular to this game it would be better.

Second is a program that would let me play the game in a window. Again hard to find and better luck if someone knows for this game in particular.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop (I have to get the specs and exact model number later, I'm posting this from work because I have no internet connection at home) which I mainly use for playing DVDs and games. Up until about a month ago, it would play all of my DVDs just fine; I'd insert the disc, I'd hear the whine of the drive spinning, then two beep-like noises, then the WMPlayer would start playing the DVD. Then for a few of them, it would start whirring, , and make some other noises, then stop whirring, then start again like it's trying to read the disc again, and eventually it would just stop trying. I bought a DVD lens cleaning disc and have used that many times, but it doesn't seem to help much. Strangely, it doesn't seem to be caused by excessive scratching or smudging of the DVDs; I've put in brand-new DVDs straight from the packaging that won't play, but then I'll put in another DVD that has some scratches or smudges on it and it'll play fine every time. Any idea what might be going on? Again, I apologize for the incomplete info: I'll post that when I can. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi Everyone,

Here's a weird one for you....

I have a Compaq laptop (work) and when I am in hotel rooms away from home I like to play MP3 music files as we all do. However, when I play these music files they start off OK, then after say 5 to 20 seconds, the music plays in slow motion!!! I don't know if it is actually half speed, but the notes are the same pitch - just down an octave or so...!! I can press 'pause' then 'play' straight away and it resumes at normal speed, but again after 2 to 20 seconds resorts to half speed ...

This happens for MP3's with both Windows Media Player and Winamp..... strange eh!

Has anyone experienced the same problems ??? and does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do??

regards

Haven't tried to play audio cd's since I re-installed Windows 98SE several months ago as my music is on the hard drive. However, when I tried today to play an audio cd, I got an error message: "WMP encountered an error when reading the CD ROM drive in digital mode. Click OK to switch to analog mode."

Nothing happened when I tried to do this. Went to Tools/Options/Devices and clicked on the relevant hard drive - nothing happened. Tried to open Properties and it wouldn't so I can't get in to see what the setting is.

Data cd's seem to be OK. My music already on the hard drive plays OK.

Any ideas? Thanks

Ok, first it could be an issue with your graphics card drivers. I suppose you have that 9600gt in your signature, so I'd recommend you do this:

1. Download Driver Cleaner PRO: http://www.download3k.com/Install-Dr...fessional.html
2. Download these Nvidia drivers for your card (not the most recent, but the most compatible and reliable I found, they are good for solving issues): http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_182.06_whql.html
3. Go to Control Panel>>Add/Remove programs (if you have some other unninstalling software, for example Advanced Uninnstaller PRO or CCleaner, DON'T use them for uninstalling a driver. For the most times it doesn't even appear in the list), and remove both Nvidia drivers and Nvidia PhysX (if available).
4. Boot into safe mode, run DCP, select Nvidia and wait a bit. If for a long time (ex. 20 minutes) the system does nothing, just reboot into normal mode.
5. Install the drivers you downloaded.

Now try running a lot of games and let me know if the blue screens are less frequent, or some of them are gone and some remain. Then again it could be the PSU, so if this doesn't work I'd question the quality, what brand is it? :)

Not really a big issue, but I noticed recently that this feature doesn't work. I have a folder that has some songs and such, to the left I click "Play All" under "Music Tasks" the mouse changes to the sand time icon as if its loading, and then goes back to the pointer.....and Windows Media Player doesn't open up. Anyone have a clue on how to have this working again?

In my music folders, when i select the option "play all" on the left frame of the folder (i'm using windows XP2), no programs open up to play the music. It is supposed to be handled by WMP program, but that doesnt start up. It basically results with no response, as if i didnt click in the first place. Anyone know what the problem could be?

do you have any other media players installed into windows, such as real player or itunes?

try going to start>set program access and defaults>microsoft windows and see what it lists for 'media player', it should be set to windows media player

also look under the 'non microsoft' category, it should say 'use my current media player'
