The first thing I would try is to go to system, storage then select hard drive, press left bumper, right bumper, then X, do this twice and then yes to update. This deletes the old update and tries to replace it with the new update. If this fails there is an alternative method - You first need a flash drive/memory stick that has got FAT32 file system (just in case you don't how to find out this info) with drive inserted to laptop/pc go into windows explorer and right click on the memory stick and go to properties you can then view the system type i.e. NTFS, FAT32.

Once sorted go to the Xbox Support website then select Xbox360 - System - System Update then select How To Get A New Xbox 360 Update last option to pick is Copy To A USB Flash Drive.

Save the file to your laptop/PC, once completed unzip the file and copy the folder to the flash drive how it was unzipped, plug the flash drive into the Xbox and switch it off. Once the 360 starts back up it looks at the flash drive and installs the new update. Once completed you can remove the flash drive and carry on playing!!

If you already have the Spring 2010 Dash Update for the Xbox 360 console this can be configured( go to Setting up your Xbox 360 with your USB Flash Drive).

My wireless cntroller will not flash its green center lights

sounds like.... the battery completely died on controller.. you charged it by plugging it in to system and never restarted the system to regain the wireless signal..

turn off 360... turn off controller.. boot system.. boot controller, if no signal is detected you have a hardware issue with controller (assuming other controllers work with system)
