  1. With the console off, press and hold the sync up button (the small white one)
  2. While holding the sync button press the power button to turn on the console
  3. Continue to hold the sync button until the Console has booted up completely.
  4. During the boot process the console should clear any failed updates, allowing you to use it normally.
then you can get the update again

  • 1) Turn off your Xbox 360 and physically disconnect it from the internet by either unplugging the ethernet cable or disconnecting the wireless adapter.
  • 2) Turn on your Xbox 360 and sign into your account. You should NOT be connected to Xbox Live.
  • 3) Navigate to the "System" blade and choose the "Memory" option, then select your storage device.
  • 4) Now search. Look through all the system folders then find and delete ALL incomplete content files. You can spot an incomplete file by the yellow exclamation point icon. Remember to delete ALL incomplete files
  • 5) Once all the incomplete content files have been deleted, turn off your Xbox 360.
  • 6) Reconnect your Xbox 360 to the internet by plugging back in the ethernet cable or wireless adapter.
  • 7) Turn on your Xbox 360, connect to Xbox Live and hopefully your problem is solved.

How to get an internet connection for xbox live


Hello award ward,

To get a wireless internet connection for Xbox live, you will need a high-speed Internet connection such as cable or DSL and a router, gateway, or wireless access point (WAP) that is compatible
with Xbox live. If your XBOX360 console is first generation, you will also need a Xbox 360 wireless networking adapter. If you are using a wired connection, you will need a network cable. Plug the network cable into your router and the other end into your Xbox 360. On your Xbox 360 console, navigate to "MY XBOX" and then select "system settings" Next select "Network settings" and then select "Test Xbox Live connection" Select YES when the prompt appears asking you to update your software. After you become connected, there are two choices: Free membership of Gold membership. Once you are connected, navigate back to "My XBOX" and select your avatar and then select "Join Xbox Live" If you need any more help feel free to contact me. Thank you for using Fixya

The x box says system update stopped..what has happened? how do i fix it?


Came across a link that might be of some use to you, here's what it says:

Get Updates for Your Xbox 360 Console There are three ways to get updates for your Xbox 360 console:
Update through Xbox LIVE. Copy update to a USB Flash Drive. Burn a DVD or CD. Update through Xbox LIVE
Getting the update free on Xbox LIVE is the best option because your console will be automatically updated as new system software is released.
To update your Xbox 360 console on Xbox LIVE, you must have an Xbox LIVE account with either a Gold or Silver membership, and a broadband Ethernet connection.
To update on Xbox LIVE: Connect your Xbox 360 console to your broadband connection. If your console is not connected already, see Connect to Xbox LIVE. Note Your console will be restarted when you join Xbox LIVE, so be sure to save your game progress. Create an Xbox LIVE membership or add one to your offline profile, if you haven't already. Go to the Marketplace area of the Xbox Dashboard and select Join Xbox LIVE. Follow the steps for creating a profile. You can also add an Xbox LIVE membership to an existing profile by selecting Join LIVE from the Xbox LIVE area of the Xbox Dashboard. You may be asked to update the software on your console. Select Yes and wait for the update to finish. Future updates will be installed automatically, as long as you are signed into Xbox LIVE. Copy the Update to a USB Flash Drive
If you don't have an Xbox LIVE account or have a slow Internet connection, using a USB flash drive is a good option.
Note: The USB flash drive must use the FAT32 file system.
Update using a USB flash drive:
Connect your USB flash drive to a USB port on your computer. Click here to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate9199.zip" anywhere on your computer. Unzip the File. Copy the contents from the unzipped folder onto the root of your flash drive. Safely remove the flash drive from your computer and plug it into a USB port on your Xbox 360 console. If your console is on, turn it off, then back on. The update program will start automatically. Select Yes, update now. When you see the new dashboard, you're done. Burn a DVD or CD
Your other option is to download a file from Xbox.com and burn a DVD or CD. Use this method if you don't have your console connected to broadband, or if you use a dialup connection to the Internet. You could even do this at a friend's house who has a broadband Internet connection and a DVD or CD burner.
To create an update disc you need the following:
A DVD or CD burner. A blank, writeable DVD or CD. The update file from Xbox.com. This procedure involves burning the DVD or CD by using Microsoft Windows DVD or CD burning software. If you're using third-party CD/DVD writing software, follow the instructions for creating a data disc.
The same steps apply whether burning a CD or a DVD.
To create a DVD or CD:
Click here to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate9199.zip" anywhere on your computer. Place a blank disc in your burner. From Windows Explorer, select Open Writable CD Folder Using Windows Explorer or open the CD drive icon. Open (double click) the zipped $SystemUpdate.zip folder and drag the contents of the zipped folder to the root of the CD Folder. If the CD write window doesn't open by default, drag and drop the folder onto the CD/DVD RW drive. Note If you are using an earlier version of Windows you will need to open the file using a separate utility (for example, WinZip). In the Explorer window, click Write files to CD from the CD writing tasks or right-click the CD/DVD RW drive and select Write these files to CD. Caution The update filename and folder structure must be intact for the update to run properly. Follow the steps in the CD wizard. When you are finished with the wizard, the CD will eject. Your CD is ready. To update the console:
Place the CD in the Xbox 360 console.
Power cycle the Xbox 360 console. The update program will start automatically. Select Yes, update now and press A. Wait for the update to complete. When the console reboots, you're done. If this does not work then you need to sand your xbox in to microsoft.
Keep Checking Daily for the new update.

I am incredibly frustrated. I have been trying for hours to simply join silver xbox live, and it times out every damn time. I need to connect my xbox 360 with my wireless internet and can't do that either....


setting up xbox live is a very simple method and can be done easily if you follow the step by step process on the xbox. First of all, Xbox Live requires a high-speed Internet connection. There are many different videos on youtube that show you how to get an internet connection on the 360 even if you dont want to by a 100$ adapter or run a wire throughout your house. after you get a connection you can follow this process:



after you get a connection you can follow this process:
1. On the Gamer Profile screen, select I Want to Join Xbox Live and then press A. 2. Scroll to the Join Xbox Live option and press A. 3. Select Yes and press A to continue. 4. Enter your gamertag and press Start. Xbox Live checks the availability of your selected gamertag: • If the name isn't available, you're prompted to try another name. • If the gamertag is accepted, you are automatically prompted to link to your Passport account. 5. Select your current Passport account status: • Yes, I do(you have a Passport account). • After you sign in to an existing Passport account, you can skip to Step 16. • No, Create One(you don't have a Passport account). 6. If you select No, Create One, you can now choose your Locale. 7. Set your preferred language. 8. Set your birth date. 9. Enter your e-mail address. 10. Select a password, a secret question, and a secret answer. 11. Select Next and then press A. 12. Enter your first name, last name, phone number, and contact e-mail address. 13. Read the Terms of Use. 14. To accept the terms, choose Accept and press A. If you don't accept the Terms of Use, you can't create an Xbox Live account. 15. Pick your Xbox Live membership type. When creating a new Xbox Live account, you have two basic choices: • The Gold (paid) account lets you in on multiplayer games on Xbox Live. • The Silver (free) account lets you download game updates and purchase new content through Xbox Live. 16. Confirm your account type choice (and enter payment details if you chose Xbox Gold). 17. Choose a gamer picture. 18. Choose your level. 19. Decide whether you want to subscribe to e-mail information about Xbox Live
