Hardwood. If you set the 360 on carpet its not that bad for it but carpet attracts sooo much dust it will definably get stuck in your console. Also because carpet is soft It makes ventilation so much more difficult for the 360.

How easy or difficult is it to remove wall-to-wall carpeting and what are the best tools?

Ok,first off you may not need to remove the 1/4 round, being hardwood floor under the carpet, the 1/4 round was probably installed for it and the carpet was installed up to the 1/4 round baseboard.
It is fairly easy to remove carpet and pad. Take a pair of pliers and go to a corner, take a bite of carpet with the pliers and pull. It should come up if no base was installed on top. Now you just work your way around the room pulling up the carpet. once the carpet is free you can roll it up like a burrito, (each side to the middle then roll from one end. The tighter the easier to manage.) or you can fold one side in and cut it into strips 3 foot 4 foot whatever, to make it easier to carry out then roll strips up. Once carpet is out the pad is next. It will have been stapled to the wood floor around the perimeter and where 2 pieces of pad come together. You just pull the pad up, it will tear and the staples will stay in floor but just get rid of the pad, pull it and roll it and carry it out. That will leave you with a hardwood floor with a bunch of staples with pad chunks and tackstrip nailed to the floor.
A pair of pliers and a lot of patience will remove the staples and a pry bar and hammer will remove the tackstrip. A carpet knife available at any Depot for Homes is best for cutting the carpet. The brick on your floor was probably laid on top of the hardwood and wont need any trim, if you want you can trim it with 1/4 round to match the existing. Your transitions from wood to linoleum can be done in flat metal that comes in 1 inch wide or 1 1/2 inch wide gold or silver and nails down with twisted nails of the same color. You can also find wood transition strips or make them yourself, the wood transitions I think look better but cannot be made as flat, so there is a trip hazard issue. Any gloves will work. I have been installing floors for 37 years and I personally dont wear gloves when tearing out carpet and pad.

One red light flashes on the start button can it be fixed

one red light means that it is overheating. keep your xbox off any carpet and be sure the vent holes are not blocked and are clean and free of any dirt/debris that may build over time.

Xbox 360 Console: disc is not working keeps saying open tray...

This just worked for me..... unplug all leads etc from the back of the console2_bing.gif, hold the unit 6inches from the floor (carpet surface - not a hard floor) the front of the panel facing the carpet and drop it........ If its still under warranty send it back - if not give it a go!

Xbox 360

Hi pcon21,

I suggest keeping the new Xbox 360 because the new one should have the HDMI port and the older Xbox 360 does not come with the HDMI port.

Over heating

Ventilation is better if it is sittion horizontally, as opposed to vertically. Also, keep it off carpet and give it plenty of room to breathe. Make sure the vent is clean and clean the area regularly to keep dust away. Also, make sure the fans are working. You can also buy the cooler that sets under it to help keep it cool, though a regular fan usually works and is much cheaper.
