Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Turning on and off randomley

I am in Iraq, I bought an xbox last month and had to buy a new power supply and I just got it in last week. I hooked up my xbox plugged it into a transformer plug works fine. I turn it on it works fine for movie watching or listening to music, but when I go to play games, After anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes it will just shut off. No notice nothing. Just out of nowhere shuts off. After about a minute or two it will turn back on and then work again for about another 5 to ten minutes then turn off again. WHAT IS WRONG!!!! It's driving me crazy specially when well I am in Iraq and playing games is a big passtime for us over here. Please help me out!!

If my son has XBox Live Gold Membership do we just need an internet connection to play or do we require extra GB per month to play?


The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)

Getting disconnected while multi player games


Are you using too much bandwidth? Try disconnecting all other internet sources. Then try it. Our internet phone would be disturbed if we were using any bandwith
