  3. do you have pending updates waiting to be installed from windows update?

    you can check this in the shut down icon for an option "update and restart"

    nopes...all updates are installed and there are non pending
  5. this is odd then,

    since your not experiencing other issues but just the static live tiles, then the only fault we can blame is windows update.

    can you go to the windows store, and check if it will update itself.
  6. no there are no updates in the store too...1 more thing the store apps' tiles have not turned blank...just the weather,stock,health,sports and news app tiles...even the store tile is working
  7. could i send you a screenshot anywhere else??
  8. there's no need.

    im currently replying from my phone, later i will check with my computer to see if we may have missed a setting.

    ok
  10. for what i can find in my computer, there's very limited settings for live tiles...

    for some reason other people are also having the same issues, but for comparison we all installed the same updates.

    they found some fix, try this...

  18. yeah its the same as mentioned in the other threads,

    download something from the windows apps store, something that refreshes itself a lot,
    like a weather app. then pin it to the metro view.

  22. Best answer
    try this, change your screen resolution to 1024x768
    then run windows 8 app troubleshooter, choose repair.
    then unpin the apps, then pin them again
    then restart.
    after, check and restore your previous resolution

    its a ghetto fix that worked for someone on the thread.
