There is. To reset your Xbox 360 to factory defaults do the following.

  • Press the middle button on the controller
  • Scroll right to settings
  • Go down to system settings
  • Choose Initial setup
Hope this helps!

How to upgrade to an adult Xbox Live account


I'm going to explain how to upgrade your account from a child account to an adult account.

Okay, since an Xbox live account takes it's information from Windows Live, this is what you have to do:

Go to Hotmail.com
Sign in using your Xbox Live account e-mail and password

If you're not already signed up for mail, don't worry about it. Click view contacts if you're not already signed up.

In the top right corner click options
click More options
Click View and Edit Your Personal Information
Click Registered Information
Change your birthdate
click Save

Your age is changed!
This may or may not be enough

If it is: HURRAY! If not: read on

Sign on to your xbox 360
Open the guide menu
Go over to System setup
Go to Account Information
Click Promote Child Account
It will ask if you want to connect to Xbox Live
It will then take you to the account setup
Click continue
Then You will need to enter Credit card information. It is supposed to be a new one.
You need to accept a new terms of use then follow the prompts.
Next it will bring you back to the dashboard (you will be signed out) Sign in, accept the terms of use again, and you're all set. Have fun!

If my son has XBox Live Gold Membership do we just need an internet connection to play or do we require extra GB per month to play?


The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)

I have a child account for my xbox live account and my parents and I would like to use Netflix. I have already tried signing up for it directly from my Xbox 360 and it said I couldn't due to the child...


You will need to upgrade your child account to an adult account to be able to use Netflix. Unfortunately this is not possible until the child reaches the legal age of 18 (US).

Once a child account is created it is managed from the date of birth indicated when applying for the account.

Netflix can't be bypassed to work on an Xbox 360 on a child account.

The only solution to view Netflix on the Xbox 360 is to have an adult account created and access via that account.

Recommend that you just stream using your computer. Plenty of options out there to get your PC hooked up to your TV if you need to view in a larger scale.

How do you get xbox live


First you would have to connect your Xbox to the internet. Steps for this can be seen on xbox.com. Assuming you have already connected it to the internet, you can either purchase an Xbox live gold membership with a credit card on xbox.com, or use a prepaid subscription card and enter the code on the xbox live marketplace. Good luck!

Ethernet cord, Internet Connection, Xbox Live Membership, GamerTag

Can't connect with network


if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.

by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22

glad i could help!!! :3
