Well first you would need to determine wether or not the 250gb hard drive has failed. I assume you have the new xbox 360 slim. So what you can do is remove the hard drive and reinsert it and make sure that it is firmly attached. If you do not know how you can watch this video. make sure the xbox is off and unplugged when doing this.

after that if it still doesnt work because the xbox 360 slim is new you will be able to call microsoft and get a replacement hard drive for the unit. But as i said you need to make sure the hard drive is seated correctly and not failed/DOA. If the hard drive is failed and after reseating it you still cannot get it to work let me know and i can give you instructions on how to get ahold of microsoft and get it repaired under warranty. Thanks and have a great day.

Is their a reset switch on the xbox 360 slim console 250g one?


For a Factory Reset, you just need to format your hard drive.
To do this, simply go to this site: http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-360/accessories/storage
Scroll down to the "Format a storage device" section and follow the steps there. This section also shows you where you can find your serial number, which is sometimes needed to complete the format.

I have a 320gb hard drive for my Xbox and when it is inserted it doesn't show on the dashboard for memory devises


In this process your hard drive will be formatted, so back up all files to another hard drive, laptop, or be prepared to lose everything on your hard drive. After you have backed everything up, plug your hard drive into an Xbox 360 then go 'My Xbox/System Settings/Memory.Select 'USB Storage Device/Configure Now' then accept the warning.After the formatting is complete a Performance Warning box will appear, click 'OK.' Now in the 'Storage Devices' screen you should see a new option 'Memory Unit.' This shows that the formatting was successful. Disconnect your hard drive, then connect it to your laptop, load on some media (makes sure the file types are compatible), then reconnect it to your Xbox 360. Your selected media should not appear under 'Portable Device' in the Video/Music/Picture Library.

Whenever i try to load a saved game from any game my xbox 360 freezes and when i try to load a saved game from fallout new vegas it told me something weird. it told me that i have downloadable content...


Sounds like your hard drive or memory chip that has a corrupt file that has affected it. Normally problems like this are only isolated to a specific game's save game files. If you have never had your console connected to xbox live then none of their updates or game patches would be present on your system; however other newer games you may have played, you might have noticed a you will need to update your system before you can play this game message on your screen. There are only 3 steps I can suggest the first is to reformat your system this will erase/revert everything to its default settings as if you're playing the console again for the first time. The 2nd would be to clear the concole cache and erase all updates. You do this method by going into system/memory/press y button/then press xx, left bumper, right bumper, xx if you do this correctly it will ask if you want to perform maintenance select yes. The 3rd option I have will erase any faulty updates which may have not completed etc. that may be causing an error, you do this by holding the synchronize button (just to left of power) then turn the power on, continue to hold the sync button until it loads completely then release. You will not receive any message or indication but any failed updates will now be removed from your system. Hope this helps, I would try these steps from 3 to 1 if I were you to, so hopefully you don't have to wipe all your saved games
