Yeah... called xbox today and they say that due to the high volume of holiday signups.. it's thrown the server into all sorts of problems... they don't know when the problem is gonna be fixed.. but the guy said to keep tryin' every now and then and hope for the best... sucks!!
Yo, guys i just got word that anyone with a xbox live account is to be getting a free game soon in Arcade. Im just speculating here, but this could be a reason. Im thinking that Microsoft had possibly cut the sign up portion of xbox live until the release of this arcade game, also due to the high volume of people signing up because of hearing about this could be another reason. I just fixed my xbox and this is how they reward us...
Good luck guys, also try resetting your router and right when you get connection sign in, worked for me but i had to reformat my drive again. PEACE

Download your Xbox Live profile You might want to download your Xbox Live gamer profile in the following situations:
You want to use your Xbox Live gamertag on another console.
You have a Zune, Games for Windows, or Windows 8 Microsoft account (download your existing account instead of creating a new account).
You accidentally deleted your Xbox Live gamertag from your console.
You can download your Xbox Live gamertag to any console. Here's how:
Press the XboxGuide button on your controller (large X button in the center of your controller).
Select Download Profile.
Note Not seeing Download Profile? Press X to sign out of your profile.
Enter the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox Live gamertag. If you don't know your Microsoft account or password, see Find your Microsoft account or password.Note "Microsoft account" is the new name for what used to be called "Windows Live ID." It's the email address and password you use to sign in to Microsoft services (including Xbox Live). Find out more.
Now, enter your Microsoft account password.Note If your account is an Xbox Live child account, the parent's Microsoft account information is required to download the profile.
Select the storage device for your profile (for example, Hard Drive).
Your profile will begin downloading. Once your profile is downloaded, you can choose whether or not you want to require your Microsoft account password to sign into your profile.
Are you talking about the manual passcode that you assign on each console? Or the password to his XBox Live account?
What do I do if I forget my pass code for my Xbox LIVE Account?
