I get this sometimes twice a day and it happened on my Monte Carlo too. It's an error message in notification bar about google sign in and to get it to sign in you have to answer one of them stupid captcha things.

Any ideas?

looks like you have (or rather google has) turned on 2 step verification on your account, this means there a particular app that google is refusing to sync with.
If you go into Settings > Account and Sync Settings,turn off Auto-sync and then click on your account in the manage accounts part you can manually sync your contacts, gmail calendar etc. Try each one and see what fails, then go here

and read up what you have to do to re-authorise that app.

Good luck mate :)

Stupid Picasa Web sync it is. Thanks for that mate. Disabled it for now and will probably remove the apk. As far as I am aware its not used for anything?!

No problem mate, it would be better if Android threw up an error instead of having to go through all of that faffing, definitely something Google should put on their to-do list for the future
