When I would connect it, it would start up and load on my computer with no problem and now it doesn't. The green light around the circle turns on but it doesnt load on the desktop. What do you think the problem is?

First see if it works on another machine. if it does plug it back into your PC look at Device Manager: See if you have any yellow ! 's under usb devices. If you do right click and install the apropriate driver.

Then I would look at your USB Drivers
c:\windows\system32\inf\usbstor,pnf
c:\windows\system32\inf\usbstor.inf
c:\windows\system32\drivers\usbstor.sys

if they are there make sure you and SYSTEM have permission to them.

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.

This is an indication that you have a bad or loose connection at the battery. Check the cable ends on the battery and clean them of any green looking stuff. Make sure all connection are tight at the battery.

How do i sync the wirless controller to the xbox


There's a button on the front of your 360 and the same button is on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it on your controller and the green lights around the xbox guide button start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I've linked a video for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim.

My computers green light turns on but not the yellow one and the computer screen doesn't turn on.


You LCD went bad, although it could just be a loose ribbon cable inside the laptop. You need to have a technician look at it.
LCD replacements cost around $100 - $200 with parts and labor.

U-tube starts,and stopsand the circle starts going around again.I cannot watch it without interruption


YouTube videos load at the same time you watch them. Since internet connection speeds and speed of computers vary, you will sometimes see a circle indicating the video is playing faster than it can load. There is a semi-transparent bar at the bottom of the video area that pops up when you hover over it. It has a red bar that shows where the video is playing and a light red bar that shows how much of the video has loaded. Pause the video until the light red bar has reached the end. You shouldn't have to wait for the video anymore! Does this help?

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.
