1. login to on a computer
2. click on sign up
3. for those who havent got any email yet you can create an email but for those who has email already and they want to use their own personal email please click the link that say: " Or Use your own e-mail address ".
4.please provide your information,and also please provide a alternate email address,now for those who don't have a alternate e-mail address,please click the link that say: " Or choose a security question for password reset".

For those who use prepaid subscription,once you have created the account please follow these simple steps: the guide button (silver button on the controller)

    My xbox 360 wont connect to xbox live and ive tried everthing

    things you can do..... first start by connecting your 360 to the router and run a test through the system setting menu on your 360 dash board.... to do this go to system setting menu and select the network setting menu.... after selecting network setting there should be an option to test you`xbox live connection.... this is the first step in trouble shooting.... if your xbox connects to the network or router than the problem may be in the Internet connection.... after you have a connection between the xbox and the router... connect the router to the Internet and run the the test again... if you are connected to the network and the internet but still not to xbox live try doing a system update to update your system with xbox live.... after doing all of these steps you may have purchased and xbox that has been banned from xbox live and will not be able to join xbox live..... a more simple solution is that you may not have an xbox live account and simply need to set one up... this can be done through the xbox or you can go to and set up a live account... you can also find FAQ's and trouble shooting steps there

    Password on famliy setting for xbox live preowed console

    From the XBox website:

    Managing Xbox LIVE Activity
    Xbox LIVE Controls come into play only when you take Xbox 360 online, and they're linked to a child's profile and gamertag. When an Xbox LIVE account is created, the service asks for the member’s age to determine whether to apply Family Settings to that account.
    Parents are also required to create or use an existing Windows Live ID. The Windows Live ID is associated with the child’s Xbox LIVE account and protects the settings from being changed later by the child. To change a child’s settings, first select the child’s account name and connect to Xbox LIVE. Once signed in, enter your Windows Live ID password to unlock the settings.
    To see these controls, go to My Xbox, open System Settings, then selectFamily Settings, Xbox LIVE Controls.
