The only time I have experienced this on my console is when I have just pulled an all night session or have once again forgotten to turn my box off. Some of my friends believe there is a direct correlation between this type of behavior and increasing your chances of seeing the screen or circles of death with your system.
I would make sure that you are turning off your console when you are not using it, and that it is not piled under a heap of clothes or games. I keep a small fan by mine that circulates the air and keeps the system cool. If you are in a hot environment, running the heater a lot, keeping the console touching your TV/comp that is running constantly, or are even in the upper levels of a building you could be unknowingly subjecting your system to some stress. You could take the gadget way out and by the cooling pads that you keep your laptop on. I have to do this in the summer since it reaches 115 and by the 3rd hour of play my system is hating me.

Xbox 360 slim offline lag

Hi dinobots,

Do you use Wi-Fi or an ethernet cable? If you are experiencing severe lag, it could be a problem with your actual internet connection and not necessarily your XBox 360.

I would purchase an ethernet cable (they run about $10 over here in the states) and try that out before anything else

Hi i keep gettin this error code 80010514 when playin cod all other games work fine do u know what it is?

I have been doing a fair amount of research about this issue. I have found that the majority of this code is with COD Black OPS. As you probably already noticed while playing online if you even got that far was a real choppy game online in the multiple player mode. The game sold and really is Overloading the system they have sat up for the game. Lag, Non booting, and not getting into matches. I am inserting a Web address with discussion. There are a few steps people have done and it worked, and some have tried it and it didnt work. I am passing this along to you for you to make the decission.. I hope this helps you out, or at least understand what is going on..

I am trying to hook my 360 to the wireless internet in my house using a belkin brand wifi antenna hooked into the usb port on my xbox can you help or is this even possible?

I'm not sure if it will work, but if it will, here's the link to configure up your Xbox for wireless.
The Xbox brand adapter works basically the same, so I don't see why it wouldn't work, unless Microsoft specifically took measures to prevent this. You may also have some security settings on your router that are preventing connection. I personally prefer to connect via Ethernet cable to reduce lag potential, but, to each their own.

Downloads won't work without Xboxlive?

Your Elite should of came with a transfer kit. If it didn't call 18004myxbox and they will send you one for free. You should be able to move all of your files from your old HD to the new one, then your DL content should work fine.

Lag lag lag lag

Hi there,

Some ways to get rid of your lag is to change internet service providers. If you have a wireless adapter, you may also want to get a new router. If you also have an older router, you may need to change that even you don't use the wireless internet. And for the overheating 360, it should not get hot after that amount of time. Move away from your tv, put it on a flat hard surface.(Not Carpet!), and move it away from a wall that might be preventing it's ventilation.

Hope This Helps,

Hey i just got a xbox live wirless hookup and i have a computer down staris and i dont no why it wont hook up can someone help me

It should hook up but Xbox live is having a ton of issues basically xboxlive is down and wont be back up for a while. you can go to and search under status then go to support this will let you know when you can connect back up to xbox live.

If you problem isnt with xboxlive then you will need to get a wireless router. Then go through the steps to set up a wireless network and then set your xbox to that wireless network.
