    I've got the exact same problem for the arcade version and it gives me an error message every time I go to format it. Can anyone tell me if simply buying a new hard drive works?

Your problem is a corrupted hard drive. Your only option really is to buy a new hard drive. If your gamer profiles are on Xbox Live, you will be able to recover them to your new Hard Drive.

Your problem is a corrupted hard drive. The only option you have is to buy a new hard drive. The reason why your hard drive got corrupted is because your xbox console got overheated at points of the day your console got corrupted. If your gamer profiles are on Xbox Live, you will be able to recover them to your new Hard Drive.

My xbox starts but wont get passed the xbox 360 logo wont go to the dashboard what could it be? i have no ring of death nothing all good


if you mean it gets to the logo and then turns off again then i can help you . You have too just keep turning it on again until it finally works. It may take ages but it will eventually get closer and closer to the start up menu and eventually work. If you cant turn it on and you here a buzzing sound in the in the power pack just turn it off wait till the buzzing stops and then turn it back on again. I dont know any other method yet its just how i do it.


but i cant help you if it gets to the logo and freezes.

Xbox 360 elite freezing


I'm having the same issue with my elite... almost looks as if it glitches ( vid card possibly ) sometimes it will make it to loading screen of any game others it wont even make it past the xbox logo.. If I'm lucky I can get to the dash board, but most of the time it just freezes.

I'm so glad I spent the money on an elite cause my premium I sent back to MS 3x still red rings.

Any suggestions...? All lights turn green like normal no red ring o death yet .... yet, and I'm so close to tossing this thing off the deck and calling it a day.

Thanks for any help you can give
