This could also be an eeprom error, this error occurs when there is not enough power getting to the console, so if you have any cooler fans or play and charge kits plugged in to the console remove them and see if this helps.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

I was watching net flicks and my xbox rebooted and flashed a red ring (bottom right) and it said E68. i shut it off and started it up again and works<did that twice<the unit was alittle hot...


The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.

To fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft, as the e68 is generally believed to be related only to your console's hard drive/HDD.

Hope this helps.

New halo xbox360 just opened system error E68


Hi here is the error code details>
E68: Hard Drive Error - Hard drive not DMA configured: It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it. Also this can be caused by a problem with the fans that make them draw too much power, it can also be caused if you have unnecessary accessories attached to the console like an external fan unit. Attempt to remove unnecessary accessories first, and then necessary components such as the hard drive and USB devices. If you have any case mods you may want to investigate those as well.
let me know if you have any further problems or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

One red ring, erra 68.


What you need to do is try using the console without the hard drive or with a different hard drive, one red ring means a hardware failure, and the error code e68 is in relation to the hard drive. If using the console with a different hard drive, or none at all doesnt work, ensure that the fans are working as they often also cause the e68 error and a single flashing red light.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

E 68 error code.


The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem, much like all of the problems in the "e6x" family of error codes on the Xbox 360 platform. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.
Step one to fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft



if it is the hdd there are guides on the net on how to fix it

The xbox360elite the red light flashes and e68 comes up on the screen with different language on the tv screen is also showing.


E68 means that you have a bad hard drive. Take out your hard drive and turn the unit on to confirm. Once this is done just buy a new hard drive and your good to go! Or now Microsoft just released where you can use a Flash drive :]

E68: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it, This can also be caused by a Hard Drive Eprom Error. Some also believe this might be caused by a problem with the fans. If the unit operates successfully without the hard drive, simply replace the HD. If the unit continues to show the error code with no hard drive connected, this will confirm that there are serious issue that concern the internal connection. Contact Microsoft in this case.the console will need to be repaired.
