XBox 360 Won't start up properly

Hi All,

I have an old xbox 360 and for some reason when you switch it on it can't usually load up properly, the lights keep going round the ring and the fans kick in and sounds like it is taking off but nothing happens. If it does start up then it comes up with an error disc unreadable message at some point in the game.

Is it past it???!

Trying to stream media from pc to xbox 360 but my pc won't connect at the "select source" screen on my xbox 360. I have forwarded all the proper ports...I think.

That is a peculiar device for doing that. It doesn't like some types of files and with video it's got to be VERY delicately encoded or it won't work. You need to have your PC up and running, when you load your xbox (at least with Vista and Windows 7) it should pop up by your clock a bubble saying "Media Extender available" click that and you should get some instructions.

When I play 4x4 evo 2 on my xbox 360 it will not save or load

Rob B is totally wrong, it has nothing to do with your 360 over heating or going to have the Red Ring Of Death. I am having the same problem too. Some of the old xbox games are compatible with 360 but some have bugs that do in some case render them unable to play to optimal performance. Try switching your display settings, I have one game that won't play at all unless my display is at 480p

Xbox 360 controller disconnects for no reason

Depends on how long you are playing. Usually I play a couple hours a night and my rechargeable battery pack last awhile till I have to switch it out. You can usually tell when the battery is getting low, a light starts to circle around the on/off button on the controller.

Yeah they do usually put referbished ones in there, if you made sure that your xbox is laying down and that you have blow air into the drive your last thing to do is to send it in, because there is not much to do after that.
