Every time i put my brand new (purchased two hours ago) call of duty black ops game, the screen goes to the XBOX 360 screen, and freezes there. the hard drive i have for my console is also brand new, well...


firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.

There is a black screen coming and its written: error code 142 massege error code 2000 strike 0142 massege harddrive 1 strike self test unsucceful .status 79 DELL inspiron 1525


Remove the hard drive on the left side hand edge of the laptop and put it back again making sure that its properly press. This will require you to use a + screw driver. If the same thing occurs, unfortunately, replacing the hard drive will resolve the issue basing on the error code pertains to the hard drive being undetected. Please let me know of the outcome. Thank you and regards.

When i turn it on a black screen pops up and says system error. E 74


Ah, sounds like the typical hard drive controller failure they're known for. There's 2 things you can do, send it back to microsoft for service or remove the hard drive, go to Gamestop & buy a used xbox for about $130. Not much else.

My xbox 360 has one red light and an error code: E 79


That error code means that your XBOX had trouble reading a file from the hard drive. Your hard drive could be failing, or it could some of the files could have become corrupted. Try playing the XBOX without the hard drive to see if the error reappears.

Try to reconnect the Hard drive and see if it still errors. If it does, get a new hard drive.

Mine says E 79...??? Can anyone help ??


Hi Buddy! Basically E 79 is a general ERROR Code for XBOX 360. If you do not have a spare Hard Disk, you may try removing the Hard Disk and playing on a CD to see if it works. This will isolate to any corrupted file on the Hard Disks.
I also found out this video on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTXw2RkSiMY) giving some pointers on the E79 ERROR. But, I would suggest that do only the thing you are capable to do in the tips that guys given on his video. If simple reset of Hard Disk does not work, better send your XBOX to XBOX Repair Center specially if the 3 years of your unit is still valid.

This is about my xbox 360 when i turn it on with the hard drive in it goes to a black screen and says system error in several different languages and a red light come on on the counsel and when i take out...


E68 error? If so, turn off system, take off hard drive, put hard drive back on (good and tight) and turn system back on. Repeat a few times, sometimes it takes me 3 or 4 tries.

E79: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it. If it works with the hard drive removed then you may have a faulty hard drive m8. To test your machine before you buy another one, borrow a mates hard drive and test it in your machine, if you get the error code again then something in your machine is faulty. If it loads ok with a different hard drive then yours is definately the problem. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
