It basically means that your game is incompatible (cannot play on ur OS).

All you have to do is:

Go to Safe Mode, To do this, you need to boot up and press f8 until you see the advanced options, go to Safe Mode. Login with the correct details, and go to control panel. Uninstall the game and restart your PC to take effects.

The next time your buying a software for your PC, check to see if it's compatible with your OS.

firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.

When i play games i can play for about 4secs and then it freezes


It may freeze because your game Cd could be scratched or bad. Or maybe its not your game CD at all maybe it is your console. What you can try doing is rubbing alcohol on the game CD and see if that works. If not, try blowing into the area where you put the CD into.

Good Luck!

Resident Evil 5 freezing on loading screen


I don't know if the disks have a flaw but if you tried two brand new games both with freezes is sounds like it's your 360.

Freezes at start of game


This is a problem with the games. Check the back of the CDs for scratches. Try to compare them with games that work. If you see a noticeable difference you can buy a CD cleaner from gamestop and remove the scratches from it .

I downloaded my sims 2 perfectly, and im on a brand new laptop, so there is enough space for my game to work OK. but whenever i try and play the game, it is fine for 2minutes, and then it just freezes...


Most games when downloaded would download with a virus and most viruses are known to freeze a game or program up.
But what mite work is to get yourself a anti virus and i would recomment AVAST 4.8, if that doesnt work then it is recommended that you buy the game and not download it
