When installing games it wont open games says my graphics drive is unreadable. Its windows xp 64 bit and has an original graphics drive from the intel corp. Is there a way to fix this issue?

hi, we need more specs of the system youre using; anyway a intel integrated gpu will not be useful to play today games.
youll need a gfx card (even a geforce 8800 or a amd hd4700) with min. 1gb of vram to play.
you can find second hand cheap on proper sistes.

Xbox is consistently saying "the disc is unreadable" and its a new game. also it scratched the cd after a little bit. makes the sound like somethings catching inside

Yes you can fix this by cooling the heat getting to the sensors on the back of the drive and it will fix it. You just need a good repair guide or you can send it in and get it fixed.

Xbox 360 only reads some games and says others are unreadable.

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Disc unreadable even with new discs, tried putting console flat instead of upright still doesn't work.A game can be playing then stops and says disc unreadable!

Unreadable disk error happens because the sensors on the DVD drive are overheating, it is not normally because the drive is faulty.

You need to stop this heat build up to be able to play again. You can do this yourself or send it in

Fight Night Round 4 disc error

For some reason some games on the 360 can be a bit tricky to say the least, if it were my console i would strip the machine down, strip out the dvd drive and open it up to clean the laser.

you can clean the laser with a good old cotton earbud and a bit of spit which is just as good if not better than the sprays you can buy.

another thing to do is adjust whats called the 'pots' these are little dials on the laser circuit board which control the power etc of the laser beam. i do have a guide on doing this and you can have it free if you need it.

hope i help in some way
