It sounds like that the controller will not pick up the signal.  I would try a wired controller first to make sure that all connections are good as far as operation.  If that turns out good then I would get a friends controller and try to connect it with the remote buttons.  remember to press the button on the xbox first then press the search button on the back of the controller second.  If the wired works and the wireless does not then you have a problem with the receiver in the xbox itself.

My xbox 360 will turn on but the lil green circle wont light up and controller wont connect?

Your xbox 360 may not actually be on if there's no green light and your controller won't connect. If pressing the power button doesn't turn on the console/green light doesn't come on then your motherboard may be bad.

Xbox 360 wont go on!?

If the controllers light up then the system is turning on. Does the green light come on under the power button on the Xbox console? If so then I bet your system is working... Did you use the video cable that came with the system? If so then check to see if you have the switch on the cable set to HDTV or Analog depending on TV...

Xbox turns on but i have no green lights

What appears to be the problem in my case is that the RF module board in which the power button and the controller sync lies has been damaged. If aboslutely no lights come on when you power on your xbox 360, but it loads like normal, something has fried on the module and needs to be replaced. You can ether contact microsoft about this, or buy one off of ebay and install it yourself or have someone who knows how install it for you. Doing so would void your warrenty of course though.
