    Skype and MS Lifecam HD-3000

    I just picked up a Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 to go with my new system and cannot seem to get any video to work. When I plug in the device, Skype recognizes it and directs me to the configuration screen - instead of seeing myself in the video frame, I just see a spinning wheel as if it is try...

    Solved What is this??

    Ah Ha! That was it! It was nothing to do with the internet, but rather the power status. Odd that it still appeared even when I disabled this ASUS startup. And odd that you can do nothing with it.. clicking on it to change power options does nothing. Will need to look into this more. Thank you...

    Solved What is this??

    Further to my investigation, I went to the startup tab (under task manager) and disabled ALL items.. and the problem persists. Obviously, it is something loaded on startup.. is there any other place I can look for startups?

    Solved What is this??

    Took a look at this, and it does not seem to apply to me.. I am not wirelessly connected. And when I click on my network, I do not see any option to turn airplane mode off or on. Also, the little jet icon they show at that link, is not the same as the large one I have. But thanks for the...

    Solved What is this??

    Thanks for the suggestion.. there were only two ASUS startups, and I disabled both and it is still there. Will have to try each one to see which is the culprit.

    Solved What is this??

    Well, this is a desktop computer with hard wired line to my router. Don't think there is wifi.. other than an option to add a hotspot. This board, ASUS Z87 Expert, does come with a wifi hotspot, but I have not connected the antenna yet or configured it yet. I will have to explore this.. thanks...

    Solved What is this??

    This keeps popping up in the lower right corner of my screen every time I boot up.. I have no idea what it is.. right or left clicking on it has no effect, nor clicking on any of the 4 icons. The only active area is the little arrow on the left that closes the popup. It may be part of win8 or...

    Solved Cannot turn on live tile for weather app

    Shawn.. many thanks for the reply. I checked and windows time service was not running. I manually started it, and also set it to automatically start. However, this had no effect on live tiling. I also shut down and restarted the system, and again, no effect. I checked the service again, and...

    Solved Cannot turn on live tile for weather app

    I can't seem to turn on live tile for my weather app. When I right click on it, there is no option at the bottom of the screen to turn it on. Compared to the photos app, it is currently running live tile by default, and when I right click on it, I can toggle live tile on and off. Is there...

    Updates Fail Every Time

    FWIW.. I had this same problem when updating a new copy of Windows 8 on a new computer I just built. I contacted MS, and the problem was caused by the fact that I had not activated my product. Once I activated my copy of Win 8, the problem disappeared!
