  • Busta C Jun 06, 2008

    my 360 continues to stop at the startup sequence or shortly there after. it does not play for longer than 30 seconds without abruptly freezing. the power stays on and the eject tray remains active but the audio and video stops and freezes. there is no warning nor have i had any problems in the past. i did however put in a cd that i had never played before. please help solve this delema if at all posible. i would rather not wait a month for a factory fix if unnecessary. after all, summer just started!

I had this problem also. I tried turning off and turning it back on but that didnt work. I learned that it is a software failure and unless you're a CPU programmer with high quality programs designed to write software then you cant fix it. Your best bet is to call customer support.

Tiger woods PGA tour 14 keeps freezing

Install the disk to the harddrive.
If your disk is scratched, borrow a friends disk and install it. Then use your damaged disk to start the game (that is installed on your xbox).

I play my xbox 360 and it freezes at the beginning part when it loads. It never goes to the dashboard.i took out my hardrive and played it again and it works,if I put my harddrive in, it freezes.

Your harddrive is corrupted you would need to reformat it but this will wipe everything that was stored on it. You'll have to start it obviously with the drive out and install it then go to system settings/memory to reformat

Microsoft Xbox 360 Console wont load games


Try to install the disk on a hard drive or mem stick, if that will not work, try the mem stick in another 360 install in then plug it back in your brothers, it will only need the disk to verify so wont have to read it all the time. The best mem sticks for this I have found to be sandisk.

You can also try to unplug the cord and then put it back in. try to put xbox 360 in vertical position and then put the game in. if it work on vertical position, then you can put it back to horizontal position.

Hope it works.

My disk drive broke so put another one in but it only registers every thing as a D.V.D.

It could be your xbox 360 or the harddrive that's creating the problem.

I suggest that you buy a memory card and recover your gamertag to the memory card.

Once you do that turn off your xbox 360 and turn it back on.

If says profile found on the memory card than you know that it is the harddrive that has the problem.

If it still says that it cant find the profile than you know there is something wrong with the xbox 360. Thanks

360 1 red light

This might be the Hard Drive failure code. Remove the HDD and see if the 360 boots without. If it does start-up, turn 360 back off and reattach HDD, unplug AV cable and restart the 360, when all 4 red lights start to flash, plug AV cable back in. The 360 should reboot itself and depending on how messed up the HDD is, the 360 might read the HDD and it might not. If it does read the drive, I would get a mem card and transfer as much info. as you can to the card and then get a new HDD.
