It's a meaning like "what else can be done?" and the implicit meaning behind it is that the thing I am doing now is the only option (at least this is how the speaker thinks) 

For example: 
A: Why are you putting guitar on the bed?! 
B: 还能怎么样? There's no place to put it! You took all the space in the room!



Hope this helps :)

what else can I do? 

What else you want me to do?

1、还能怎么样?=还有别的/方案/处理方式/方法/更好的办法/吗?

我已经尽力帮你想办法解决了,还能怎么样?=我已经尽力帮你想办法解决了,还有别的/方法/更好的/吗?


2、某人不小心打坏东西/就说---我已经赔偿你了,还能怎么样?=还想怎么样?(也许店主还想要他道歉)
