make sure your xbox connects to internet. then set up an xbox live account. you can use a free trial but will need to either go to a game store and buy gold membership card or buy one with a credit card. until then you will remain a "silver" which doesnt let you do anything really.
connect your xbox to internet.
click on your account and select"join xbox live"
when you register you will be started off with a free trial
go to gamestore and buy an xbox live gold membership monthley card or buy a gold member ship online. once your trial runs down you will live off a silver account which doesnt let you join partys, play online with friends,etc.
There are currently two options, Xbox LIVE Free and Xbox LIVE Gold. If you wish to play multiplayer games, you'll need a Gold account. Xbox 360 consoles come with a time-limited trial of Xbox LIVE Gold.

yes it would tell you if live had expired ! did you buy the xbox new or used ?? if used it is possible it has been banned from live access ?? if it has been banned buying a new harddrive wont get it back on ! if you bought it new & have never had a live account before then take the free month trial befor you use the 3 month u got ! just go thru the process of signing up to 'silver' membership ! what eva it asks (as it does a few times) refuse 'Gold' membership ! and select 'Silver' !! if it hasnt already had the free 1 month trial it will say at the end of signing for silver.....to try gold for a month to see what ur missing ! :-) after the month is up...use the 3 month you got !
I am not certain as to what promotion you stumbled upon. I am 90% certain you are talking about the promotion ran through best buy that gives you free Xbox Live after Halo 3 is released. If you did not purchase from best buy I would put money that this is the same type of promotion.
Unfortunately you will need to have your console set up for Live to take part in this, but the good news is all you need is an ethernet cable or wireless set up. Here is the link on how to set up for Live: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/howto101.htm http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/default.htm
I would take advantage of this free trial to see if you actually enjoy the Live experience. I personally do, but a couple of my friends prefer to play those they can actually see in the room. If you want to take full advantage you might want to try the free one month promotion which is talked about in a right column ad placement on the above mentioned links.
