Re: x box

I would check it with another set of cables, then try it on another tv. Worst case scenario is that your Graphics Card has started to die and you will end up with a Red Ring of Death on the front of your console soon.

My system works fine but some demo downloads won't play I have sound but the picture shows diagonal lines across the screen

Maybe the Demo Game isn't compatible with your TV, or your PS3. Try going to a friends house (who has a PS3 obviously), and try downloading that game on his. If it works, it could be just your PS3. If not, its probably the Game itself.

We bought a new fan for our xbox 360 on sunday and yesterday while playing Modern Warfare, the screen went completely black. We tried different tv's, but the screen stays black. We can hear noise like...

possibly unrelated. try testing the connections to the tv and the x-box. if thats solid then try removing the fan unit to see if it is the culprit.

No screen on the Xbox 360

right do the towel trick it works. wrap the 360 in 2 towels and leave it on for 15 mins. then go bk to your xbox un wrap it. put it near a window if possible ( i did and its working fine) due to it being near a window you will get no overheating and its well ventilated.
