Xbox freezes at sign in every time /no ring of death

It seems as though my hard drive kicked the bucket but i just wanted an expert opinion. As soon as I turn it on it runs great up to the piont were it auto signs in and has to actualy read from the hard drive. At this particular point it freezes continuasly, every now and again it will sign me in but still freezes as soon as it comes up. There are no error messages nor are there any red lights. I attempted to just let it sit on that screen thinking that it possibly needed time to load but still got nothing. I still have the warranty on it and probably could exchange it or send it in but i'm afraid i'll lose all of the things that i purchased. So hopfully you can give me good news and i can salvage my baby.

You might have to go delete some stuff in your harddrive. including demos you havent released. i find that microsoft saved games and files corrupt easily over time, and can cause some wayward things to go on. i had this and it drove me INSANE. but i figured if i deleted some stuff, maybe it would help instead of smashing this box with a sledge hammer and converting over to PC gaming, which i am anyways. pick your files you wanna delete carefully. good luck man.

Well you can try downloading all of the info from your xbox to a couple of the microsoft flash drives. but you said that the autosign in was seeming to make it freeze. if you have the chance, make it so the xbox DOESNT auto sign in. ive heard of a thing that you can get done to your harddrive that transfers ALL of the data from one drive to the next. call microsoft customer service and ask about it. if they arent aware of it, you can try deleting some things off the hard drive because it might be full.

OS freezes after plugging in LAN cable

You could have a bad peripheral causing the lockup. Or a corrupted OS.

If you have a spare hard drive try loading the os on it and see it the issue continues. If so and you have checked out your peripherals it may be a board issue.

I can repair s.m.a.r.t. of a samsung sp1614c

if you gor a s.m.a.r.t failure you might need a copy of spinright Spinright will move the data out of bad areas of the hard drive until you get enough time to replace the drive itself. Smart detects early failure of the drive. Its what we call healthcare for hard drives or hard drive insurence. What its telling you is your hard drive is about to kick the bucket and to bkacup as soon as you can.

You cannot repair a hard drive the only thing you can do is back it up and buy a new one. I would suggest spinright if there is data in a bad area of the disk.

thanks and please do leave your feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

Computer is very slow and sometimes freezes disk cleanup and defragmenter dont improve things

Sounds like one of two things:
1) Hardware (hardrive) failure-
Could have a dead spot on your harddrive. Have you had any blue screens associated with this? If so your hard drive may be shot. Backup what you can and replace the hard drive.
2) Malware/trojan/spyware clogging up resources-
Download and run Spybot- Search and Destroy and run a full update and scan. Also update and run your anti-virus software. If you don't have one, or want a second opinion, search for Avast AV, great free anti-virus tool.

Media test failure

The laptop is not detecting your hard drive. Remove it (usually one screw on the bottom) and put it back in. If it still doesn't see it, your hard drive has kicked the bucket and you will need a new one.
