  • Have you checked the stickied troubleshooting guide?

    Also since it's a laptop, check in the troubleshooting guide where it says about MultiGPU. You have to set the service to use the discrete GPU instead of the onboard one, otherwise perf will be degraded.

    Honestly, the green light doesn't ring a bell. Just to make sure, you are talking about a Kinect v2 right? Also the Kinect for Xbox One.
