Send the piece of garbage back to Microsoft. Most likely it is a hardware failure inside the unit. Same thing happened to me after their fall update to the dashboard. It bricked my unit and could not play any of my games for longer than 5 minutes. You can try to power off your unit, remove your hard drive, turn it back on, and see if you can play without your hard drive.

On my xbox 360 when i'm playing a game then suddenly directs me to the desk top and when i shut my xbox 360 off the power button flashes green every few seconds why is this happening ?


It sounds like a DVD drive error. When the center light inside the "ring of light" blinks rapidly it thinks the DVD drive is either open or not connected. You can buy a new DVD drive off Ebay for a decent price or take it to a professional shop. When changing the DVD drive you have to also put the original PCB from the old drive onto the new one or it will not play games. It will play DVD's all day but no games. There is a bit of soldering involved. If your not confident you can make the repair check out this site for help. www.jbgaming.com they do good work and are very reasonable.

Why cant i play any xbox games on my xbox 360


There could be a few reasons:

1: The game is not able to be played on the xbox 360. Only certain games can be played on the xbox 360. Go to http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/askxbox.aspx and type in "original xbox games". It should pop up with a list of games that can be played on the xbox 360.

2: Your family settings do not allow you to play original xbox games. Go to the control panel and look at the settings.

I am unable to sign into to my live account?


Have you clicked test connection and have it tell you why it cant connect?? If it cant connect to the xbox Live and its not a connection problem, Live might be down, you could be banned, there may be an update you need. Most of the time you cant connect there may be a temporary maintenance for live. If you still cant connect call xbox customer support and ask about your account.

Xbox 360-Red to Green


Look on the back of your tv and make sure that the red and blue cables are plugged into the right slot on the back of your tv. This would be the most common cause for something like this that you are describing.

Make sure that you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription first,
Second You won't both be able to play at the same time enless it is a game that provides guest support(and in some games WITH) guest support you cannot play anything ranked online. To sign in a game with Guest support hit the guide button on the second controller select choose profile and scroll down, if u see "Guest" as a profile and you did not create it, then that game has guest support, and you can both play.

If u are just trying to let him play alone then you have to sign him in how you would normally
