XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think

I've played my XBox with no trouble at all for the betteer part of three months. Recently, I rented Overlord and it wouldn't load. I played the demo, and it worked great, but the game freezes on the loading screen. No lights, no message. Just freezes. The controller becomes unresponsive and even ejecting the disk doesn't change the screen. I have to turn the console off eith the buttn and start over. So, I tried a couple of copies of teh game ans still no dice. Funny thing is, all of my other games work great. So, I bought Mass Effect and the same thing happened. Froze up on the initial Logo screen. The game works on my buddy's XBox just fine. I've tried everything Microsoft suggest, starting in just the dashboard, removing the hard drive, installing updates, cleaning the disk, everything they say to try. Now, I'm looking at sending it in to Microsoft, but most of what I see are horror stories about refurbished consoles and 5-time repairs. I just want to know what the deal is, Play Halo 3 online and play Mass Effect before Christmas.

Any ideas?

Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.

Ok so i have a problem with my xbox 360 slim i recently bought call of duty ghosts and i played it for about a month about two to three hours a night three to five nights a week recently ive tried playing...


Try blasting some compressed air inside near the fan (when the console is off and cool) If not, there is either something lodged pretty good in the fan or the fan is failing. Both would require you or someone to open the 360. Cheap fix though, considering the overheating hasn't taken too much of a toll on the hardware.

Ok i have xbox live but i dont have the full xbox live like i can go on the but it wont let me get demos or just get to the market place


Right. You have a "silver" account. In order to get demos or play against anyone you need to upgrade to a "gold" account. You can either use a debit card or buy a 3 month, or 12 months card at most retail shops.

I have an xbox but dont know what i need for xbox live


Xbox live is a membership that allows you to play online with other people around the world. When you purchase a condosle you get a month of "gold" then when that month runs out you drop back down to silver, check my guide to see how to set it up. silver = no online play but demos, videos etc available

Brand new mercenaries 2 freezes at the main screen on my xbox 360. what do i do?


You need to rent borrow or buy a cheap copy of army of 2 v1 the problem is ea servers. But if you get the above game put it in sign in to ea servers to play an online game mercs 2 will then work fine.

You "might" get it to work by downloading the army of two demo but if that fails you need the game.

Download the demo of army of two accept ea's terms and conditions start game quit put mercs 2 back in and it should have sorted it but if not you need to borrow rent or buy the full game to get your problem fixed. This is the same problem as the freezing on the main menu.

PS3 error Code 80010514


there might be 2 things wrong with it. 1 the laser is broken or not working right. and 2 the code files that are supposed to read the disk are corrupted either way if you still have warranty on it i would go back and get a new one as long as its not your fault there would be no problem replacing it

XBOX Live is "connected" but i cant play any games online because the server is always "Temporarily unavailable"


xbox live has recently added three ports for wireless internet.
if you know how to open ports (protocols) on your wireless router, then the following should be open (enabled) for your xbox 360s IP adress:
TCP
: 80

TCP and UDP:
:3074
:88
:53
