Every time i put the hard drive in the xbox screen shows up where it's just a white screen with the xbox symbol in the middle. Is it a virus? What can I do to fix it?


Does it load up without the harddrive in the system? If it's freezing when you put the harddrive in, you may have a bad harddrive and need to replace it.

Machine comes on but will not load windows


hard drive failure, possibly due to a virus, go buy a new harddrive and install windows on it and be careful, you can re-route your old harddrive by switching the pins to slave and then connecting it to the pc while off and unplugged after installing new hard drive and windows. then you can access your photos and such on the old drive before opening the old drive in windows scan the whole drive with a virus software.

Computer is very slow and sometimes freezes disk cleanup and defragmenter dont improve things


Sounds like one of two things:
1) Hardware (hardrive) failure-
Could have a dead spot on your harddrive. Have you had any blue screens associated with this? If so your hard drive may be shot. Backup what you can and replace the hard drive.
or
2) Malware/trojan/spyware clogging up resources-
Download and run Spybot- Search and Destroy and run a full update and scan. Also update and run your anti-virus software. If you don't have one, or want a second opinion, search for Avast AV, great free anti-virus tool.

Old Harddrive New Xbox


You will not have any problems using the Hard drive on your new console. The only catch is any Live Arcade downloads will not work offline until you do the DRM transfer. Even though you are using the same Hard Drive the DRM is married to the original console. They have made it easy to transfer now. All you need is to be logged into XBOX Live and a computer that is on the internet. Just turn on your console, log it into XBOX Live, and use the computer to go to www.xbox.com/drm That will solve all of your problems.

Xbox 360 reading error


i used to have this same problem with my xbox, the first thing you need to try is to turn off the console and remove the harddrive (if you have one). with the hardrive taken off turn the xbox back on again then re insert the disc to the console. if the disc then starts to load up and work properly then it means that there is a problem with your hard drive. from here you have two options. 1. you rather buy an new hard drive and that should solve it or 2. you have to format your harddrive and start all your games from scratch so unfortunately either way will mean losing your data and downloads. however before you format your hardrive make sure that the game loads properly without it. if you take the hard drive off and you cannot get a game to work still them i am not sure what the problem is and you may have to ring microsoft.

It sound that you are infected with a virus( in my observation when i encoutered this kind of problem i was infected a virus "I love my peanut" virus this will create autorun.exe in your drive and change the Open to "i love my peanut" In my case coz i have no important files on my computer i reformat it. In your case if you have important files , you can attach your Harddrive to the other system or put it in enclosure to connect via USB then scan the hard drive for viruses. this virus will be deleted by symantec or any other potent antivirus.
