comment How to set Windows Sound default settings for a device?
Unfortunately, this doesn't set "defaults" -- this merely applies a setting to the current configuration. Upon rebooting the computer, the true "defaults" are restored (2.1 speaker config, 16bit/44Khz format). I'm trying to find where to permanently change and lock the defaults I need.

Any chance you still have an issue with this...? :)

comment Is it possible to “transplant” drivers between machines?
@FiascoLabs Thanks. But this isn't involving installer logs -- this has all been manual driver installation thus far. I'd rather not use superfluous installation programs, and have verified that my computer and many other users can use this same camera/setup with default drivers. However, I did go ahead and try the installer, and even it doesn't get the camera installed. It's surely something on Windows' end. Is there some type of Windows' service/function for interfacing USB/imaging devices (like a webcam) that might be disabled or not working?

Very strange, indeed. And did yours happen to come about in the last week or so, as well?

comment Why are network speed tests slower with further away servers?
@packets You misunderstand the question/analogy. Yes, it makes sense that more distance would take more time for the first packet to arrive -- BUT -- once the "flow" of data has established, and provided it's a continuous flow, the distance should no longer matter concerning the rate of flow (speed). Unless, as I hypothesized (and Tom confirmed), the increased distance factor leads to a slower speed because of the extra number of hops in the route, and hence, a likely increase in lost packets (the non-continuous flow). Distance as a measurement alone shouldn't affect the rate of speed.

Going out on a limb, I'm guessing you followed this methodology, hence why you haven't been seen since. That being said, how are your temps? ;)
