It needs a new drive chassis, you will have broken the little plastic tabs that hold the tray level and straight! you can replace the drive but the new drive will need either the old logic board off the broken drive fitted to the new drive or the dvd key dumped off the old drive and flashed to the new one to make it work.

I have an old tube tv screen, 19 inch. Fable 3 just does not seem to want to fit properly. I am missing about an inch on all sides. I am pretty sure my xbox settings are right.

Most 360 games are made for High Definition Widescreen now.

Have you got an aspect ratio button on your remote? Try switching it to 16:9, and changing your Xbox settings to "Widescreen". You may get the two black strips top and bottom, but the game should look fine. I hope this works for you, as I know how annoying that can be!

New edition halo 360 locking up while playing a game whats the problem is it a hardeware issue

If this happens on all games you play then yes it is a hardware issue, probably the system overheating. In that case it is probably still under warranty and you just need to call Microsoft at 1-800-4-My-Xbox and they will replace or repair your system for you for free.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

Sounds like an issue with the graphics card in the system. Call up Xbox 360 Support, or return it for a new one.

Xbox 360 wont play certain new release dvds.all else ok.whats up?

This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Halo Special edition xbox console: Error E74 after update

the odds are very good... The error is caused when there's a problem with video, either because the A/V cable used is broken, or what's even worse, when Ana, the Xbox 360 hardware scaler chip is damaged. Also try this take the AV cable, plug it out and plug it in, if it still doesn't work unplug it, wipe the metal part with a soft cloth then plug it in. That might help.But i bet you will end up sending it off again.
