    Do you have the ports that messenger uses open on your router, or how is this connected to the internet?

The "Can't connect to messenger" error does not apply to in game chat or voice messaging, but only to the version of MSN that can be downloaded from xbox LIVE. Go to network settings, then test the connection to the internet. If it says that your NAT type is moderate or High, you need to do some port forwarding on your router. You can find how to do this on Xbox's main site. The port to be forwarded needs to be number 3074. (or something to that effect)

When i try to play black ops live it says this profile cant play on xbox live


One of a few possabilities.

The profile you are signed into might not be a Gold profile? You need to have a piad live account (or trial account) to be able to play online.

The profile you are using might be setup to be a child account and has used parental control to block access to live.

Or you might have had you account blocked for one reason or another from Microsoft. Contact them dirctly if you feel this might be the case.

When using my x-box the msg cant sign into messanger keeps appearing what can i do to resolve this


Hi Stephen!

When your Xbox 360 signs you into Xbox Live, it automatically attempts to sign you into Live Messenger, as they use the same communications systems since Microsoft bought MSN.

To resolve this error message popping up every time you sign in:
  1. Sign into Xbox Live,
  2. In the Xbox Dashboard, scroll over to your Gamer profile,
  3. Find the "Auto Sign-In" tab,
  4. Under "Windows Live Messenger", check "Disable".
Hope this helps!

My xbox signs in to xbox live and everything but when i try to play a game of call of duty online it tells me (the current profile is not allowed to play on xbox live ) how do i solve this problem


Hi. You probably only have a silver XBOX Live membership. In order to play online multiplayer, you need to upgrade your account to a gold membership. For details on how to upgrade your account, click here.

Hi there i got a xbos360 and it had the red light i got that to work again but now when i turn my xbox on its asking me to udate xbox how do i do that plz as i cant play anything on it thx


Okay, these are most likely 2 TOTALLY unrelated issues. You should be able to play on the xbox, just not online. sign into your profile, and press connect to xbox live. If your dashboard is out of date, then it should say you need system update to play online. However, your description is not that clear so i really cannot give you a definative answer until you provide more details.

Xbox live


Make sure that you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription first,
Second You won't both be able to play at the same time enless it is a game that provides guest support(and in some games WITH) guest support you cannot play anything ranked online. To sign in a game with Guest support hit the guide button on the second controller select choose profile and scroll down, if u see "Guest" as a profile and you did not create it, then that game has guest support, and you can both play.

If u are just trying to let him play alone then you have to sign him in how you would normally

Gamer profile settings


Have you tried the recover game tag options? I would suggest this if you did not purchase a gold membership. By the way gold memberships can be purchased on ebay for a fraction of the cost of retail outlets, plus you get emailed the key almost instantly. Actually faster than going to the store..
