Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When I turned on my Xbox 360 this morning, it came up with an error code (Error E 68), after that when I turned on my Xbox, my profile had disappeared from the main screen and was listed as corrupted. I did a Google search and found how to fix it if you're on Xbox Live, however I am not on Xbox Live. Surely there's another solution which doesn't require your profile to be on Xbox Live?
I have heared that if you just delete the profile, just the profile, everything will be just fine (note: This only works if your profile is on xbox live).
Just go to memor, then go into the saving device the corrupted profile is on. Then "click" on the botton that says profile and delete the corrupted profile. Remember; the profile will be a small save and not taking up most of your harddrive, look for something with MB size, not GB size. When you have done this, go to "recover gamertag" and do so for the profile you just deleted. After all this, your game saves and achivements should be present and working.

E68 is a voltage error. That means that the Xbox has insufficient power to function
properly. This can be caused by an error in the hard drive, the internal cooling fans
or the main board using too much power. it can also be caused if you
have attached an external cooling unit. Unplug the hard drive and any other external hardware then try to power on again to see if you get the same message. Check your power supply to make sure the light is green when you power up. If it is not green it is a power supply issue, make sure it is plugged directly into the wall, no extension cords or power supplies. If you do that and it is still red change the power supply. If the light is green and you still have the issue contact microsoft. If you are under warranty they will fix it for free and if not they will fix it for generally 99.00. You lost your profile due to the power issue. Your profile is saved on flash memory and the power issue probably corrupted the memory. Fix the power issue then reset to factory default and you should be good.

OK when everything vanishes like your gamer picture, your rep, your gamer score, achievements, everything but your friends, then you can do this, all you do is keep the corrupted file, then just recover the gamer tag, all that's it go through the process and gamer tag and everything is back to normal
