    This problem is most often caused by kinect not being plugged in to external electrical power. You need to plug it both into USB port in PC AND to external electrical power. Some people have plugged into an electrical outlet and believed it was working, but upon second examination realized that the electrical outlet was not working and things worked better when switching to a different outlet.

    Hope this helps,

  • klightshadow,

    What devices do you see if you go to Device Manager, under "Microsoft Kinect" and "Sound, video and game controllers" groups?

    That will help me troubleshoot better for you,
